SNA Software Selected for Eglin Wide Agile Acquisition Contract

SNA Software Selected for Eglin Wide Agile Acquisition Contract (EWAAC)

26 May 2022 – SNA Software announced today that it has been on-ramped into the the U.S. Air Force’s Eglin Wide Agile Acquisition Contract (EWAAC). The USAF had identified shortfalls in its contractor base in support of its on-going efforts toward digital transformation. Phase 2 of the on-ramp of this Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract includes capable digitally vetted companies that are identified to support warfighter needs.

In announcing SNA’s selection for EWAAC, Nicholas Pisano, CEO of SNA Software, commented: “All Air Force and other DoD and Federal agencies qualified to order from EWAAC now have another means of easily sourcing SNA’s powerful software. The Air Force has shown an interest in technologies that establish a digital ecosystem to meet the goals of their Digital Trinity: Digital Engineering and Management, Agile Processes, and Open Architecture as it relates to their armament and other programs. SNA Software has proven itself as the gold standard in being able to execute these rigorous standards in transforming and integrating previously siloed data into a decisive organizational asset.”

SNA Software’s products Proteus and Envision are market tested and proven to capture the entire project, program, and portfolio management lifecycle. Unlike point solutions that silo data and require external data transfer and touch-labor manipulation, SNA leverages industry data schemas to automate data science and to transform data into timely and relevant information.

Armed with its powerful data integrity and quality checks, it ensures that data is transparent, traceable, and trustworthy, establishing a single source of trusted business intelligence. Sitting on a common open systems BI framework, powerful configurable analytics, time-phasing, visualization, and reporting is augmented by proven COTS out-of-the-box IPPM functionality.

As such, Proteus Envision combines the power and flexibility of Tableau with the domain functionality of point solutions like Deltek’s wInsight and Acumen combined. More importantly, EnvisionData provides automated data capture and transformation, supporting the DoD-standard IPMR, IPMDAR, and FlexFile schemas, as well as other data-specific industry schemas.

This combination has been proven to improve the timeliness and use of essential performance data, reduce labor associated with data manipulation, greatly reduce errors and invalid data and, as a result, improve the outcome of data-driven decision-making.
