IUI uses predictive analytics to predict the future based on historical data using complex techniques of statistics like regression and decision trees to provide credible answers to questions. Variables within the data and others are constructed using feature engineering and then downselected though variable selection to ensure the best variables are used in the modeling process.
IUI utilizes the latest deep learning and neural network techniques to build complex algorithms to solve a variety of business cases including image classification and natural language processing. These models, once implemented, get smarter over time as more data is fed through and feedback captured.
IUI builds sophisticated supervised and unsupervised machine learning models to predict a given outcome using large amounts of data. Some of the models include gradient boosted trees, random forest, support vector machines, and clustering algorithms. The models employ self-learning and recalibration in response to changes within the training data.
IUI leverages open sources of data to augment and maximize the value of an organizational data asset. Governments produce a wealth of open data which is often not in an ideal form for easy integration with other data. IUI leverages our proven techniques to integrate these disparate data sets to enhance the value of analytics. We also assist agencies in developing open data strategy, policy and data sets for publication.
Data Governance & Quality
Poor data quality drains resources and degrades ROI. Data quality is the bedrock of any system. In fact, data quality is the number one reason analytics projects fail. Data and process quality are key components of the IUI Incremental Approach. Data Governance is central to data capability. The confidence in the decisions made based on analytics is directly related to the confidence in the data used to support the analysis.Learn More

IUI leverages almost three decades of corporate experience engineering and integrating enterprise systems. The fundamental principle for optimal design of systems has not changed – design a system for interoperability. Technological paradigms have shifted over the years but this principle has held true. In fact, the newer paradigms enable greater interoperability by compartmentalizing functions while exposing necessary data.
IUI incorporates cloud computing into systems engineering planning to include public, private or hybrid cloud computing. We assist with cloud migration strategy and implementation. We design systems wherein significant load-bearing, data-intensive computation may be federated onto commercial commodity cloud infrastructure.
IUI’s strategy practice incorporates Enterprise Architecture Planning principles early on to make actionable strategy. IUI’s philosophy focuses first on practicality and what works best for a given customer over a particular technical dogma. Our expertise spans frameworks including TOGAF, Zachmann, DODAF and FEA.
Legacy System Modernization
IUI’s experience crossing many computing paradigms over three decades enables development of sound strategy to modernize systems. This includes concepts of a complete “lift and shift”, migration of particular capabilities to a new platform and optimizing the use of a legacy system that has likely been extended well beyond its original design.
Robotic Process Automation
IUI has leveraged technology to replicate the interactions of humans with systems for well over a decade. Software today makes the process simpler than ever. RPA is one of the transitioning technologies that we often employ to improve a process without significantly altering a system. It achieves similar return with much lower expense.
Data Center Operations
IUI’s experience includes supporting network and data center operations. We keep critical infrastructure operating in a 24x7 uptime requirement. Our coverage offers troubleshooting and provisioning of circuits, patch application and upgrades as well as managing hardware failures.
IUI’s cybersecurity services span the software/systems lifecycle from development to production. We look for software/system vulnerabilities across multiple attack vectors. Code scanning, penetration testing, SIEM/log file analysis. We also offer “white hat” hacker services to truly test your system’s defense.
Enterprise Systems Integration
Yes, interoperability. This has been at the center of enterprise systems for decades and it will remain the case for the foreseeable future. IUI has designed, implemented and supported the full gambit of integration from batch file transfers to real time SOA integration and a few proprietary methods. The key to interoperability is data and designing systems that can communicate across different contexts.
Business Process Re-engineering
How does this support the mission? That is the bottom line question we ask of any engagement. Our goal is to improve outcomes whether it’s providing support to the nation’s defense, improving safety in hospitals, reducing power outages or optimizing a customer relationship. IUI’s decades of experience have provided many opportunities to leverage our capabilities in support of the mission.
Meeting mission objectives requires an understanding of the data needed to make data driven decisions. An effective Data Strategy is a fundamental enabler for any mission planning. Access to the right data at the right time is paramount in fact-based decision making. IUI has developed strategies for organizations large and small around the world to leverage the information asset.
