Development & Modernization

A Better Way to Move Government Forward

From agile systems development to big data collection and analytics to sustainment, developing and modernizing federal government software and systems requires a deep understanding of how our customers and their stakeholders work and a plan for integrating new systems into current operations without disruption.

Know Way. Know How.

With over ten years’ experience serving federal government customers, Highlight’s leadership team brings a level of maturity and hands-on management that is unique for a government services company of our size. Our understanding of the depth, complexity and real constraints — legal and regulatory, budget, technical and organizational — within each organization gives us the critical insights needed to successfully implement new technologies in a government environment.

We begin with a project launch plan that ensures we have the right people in place, as well as all the schedules and formal documentation that will guide us throughout the project. HI-WAY, our customer-centric best practices framework, guides how we deliver our services and ensures that we maintain collaboration and stakeholder engagement throughout the process. Key to our success is our focus on agility, continuity, quality, and release management, which ensures that current operations and security are not adversely impacted by development and that no issues are introduced upon release. The result: a seamless, non-disruptive integration of new systems technologies that minimizes risk and maximizes results.
