Attain has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver new capabilities at high velocity using DevSecOps methods, modernized large and complex application portfolios, and delivered unique data science solutions using highly specialized artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities.

Appraised at CMMI-DEV Maturity Level 5 and CMMI-SVC Maturity Level 3, and certified for ISO 9001 (Quality Management), ISO 20000 (Service Management), and ISO 27001 (Security Management), Attain is one of a short list of companies in the United States with this unique combination of elite designations, demonstrating our ability to manage projects with proven best practices and use quantitative techniques to deliver repeatable results.

In addition, Attain maintains a powerful portfolio of corporate partnerships that can be leveraged to build technology solutions on AWS, including Red Hat, Databricks, UiPath, Scaled Agile, and others. 

Key Strengths

Data Science

Data Science

Attain has deep expertise in AI, machine learning, advanced analytics, and data science. Our experience dealing with large-scale volumes of data spans diverse missions, from homeland security to healthcare, financial/regulatory, and other civilian agencies. In addition to homeland security, we have dealt with large scale data for healthcare (National Cancer Institute), financial/regulatory (Securities and Exchange Commission), and other civilian agency missions.​

App DevelopmentApplication Development

At Attain, we use leading DevSecOps practices to accelerate development of mission and business applications.​ With deep experience and proven performance, our experts deliver application development on AWS for clients, using agile methodology, DevSecOps, test driven development, and high degrees of automation.

We are a Gold-level Scaled Agile Transformation Partner and can bring additional best practices to improve performance and elevate our clients’ DevSecOps maturity.​ Attain has developed our own CI/CD pipeline-in-a-box, a turn-key, modular, multi-environment solution built on AWS, to accelerate time-to-delivery for our clients.

App Portfolio ModernizationApplication Portfolio Modernization

Companies that use agile methodologies to develop an application for a client are a commodity these days. It takes a different kind of capability to manage, optimize, and transform a complex set of applications. Not only does Attain have experience performing standard migrations to the cloud, but also refactoring legacy applications, leveraging reusable components, building APIs and microservices, and containerizing applications to streamline footprints.​ Beyond modernization of individual applications, we bring transformation at the portfolio level, to more fundamentally impact long-term O&M costs. Our expertise with portfolio-level modernization is not a commodity capability. Attain has experience modernizing large, complex application portfolios (up to 75+ and even over 100+ applications) for multiple clients.

Proven Performance

Attain has deep knowledge of and experience with AWS products. Here are just some of the ways Attain has put AWS to work for our clients.

Attain has deep experience with AWS products such as Aurora, RDS, CloudFront, Route 53, CloudWatch, S3, IAM, HSM, Batch, EC2, ECS, GovCloud, WorkSpaces, SageMaker, Elasticsearch, and Kinesis.

CI/CD Pipeline in a Box 

Attain’s CI/CD Pipeline in a Box provides a modular, low-cost platform to enable clients to create a CI/CD Pipeline tailored to their needs. This solution offers a fully-functional, turn-key CI/CD pipeline that can be automatically deployed into cloud or on-premises environments in less than two hours​. The out-of-the-box platform is based primarily on open source components​ to keep cost low, but is also highly modular and customizable. This enables components to be swapped out and replaced, to leverage an organization’s existing investments in CI/CD tools, streamlining the stack, and reducing total cost of ownership. The Pipeline in a Box includes scripts to automatically perform common functions, accelerating configuration and tailoring of the pipeline​. It also offers management, build, deployment and quality features, providing an all-inclusive and extensible solution that can be further enhanced with additional functionality as needed, to align with client needs​.
