MAT has significant expertise in the design, development and delivery of enterprise systems and applications to a wide range of clients. At the Application, System and Enterprise Level, MAT defines strategies, develops designs, and implements systems and processes. As a systems integrator, MAT follows the process of linking together disparate computing systems and software applications physically or functionally to act as a coordinated whole. MAT brings together discrete systems utilizing a variety of techniques such as networking, enterprise application integration, cloud-based integration, business process management or manual programming.



Our in-depth experience in systems  integration allows us to excel at matching our clients’ needs with existing products we work with everyday. MAT’s systems integration team possesses exceptional inductive reasoning aptitude which is useful for quickly understanding how to operate a system or a GUI. Our systems integrators benefit from being generalists and having knowledge and experience in a wide-range of technologies and products. Our systems integration processes also include a substantial amount of diagnostic and troubleshooting work. We have the proven ability to research existing products and software components to help define the right solutions for our clients. As we create these information systems we may include designing or building a customized architecture or application and integrating it with new or existing hardware, packaged and custom software and communications infrastructure.


Lifecycle Activities

MAT’s application of systems integration processes and procedures generally follow the lifecycle for systems engineering. Minimally, these systems engineering lifecycle phases are requirements definition, design and development, and operations and maintenance. For systems integration, these three phases are usually expanded to include feasibility analyses, program and project plans, logical and physical design, design compatibility and interoperability tests, reviews and evaluations, and graceful system retirement.



Systems integration approaches enable early capture of design and implementation needs. The interactions and interfaces across existing system fragments and new requirements are especially critical. It is necessary that interface and inter-module interactions and relationships across components and subsystems that bring together new and existing equipment and software be articulated. The systems integration approach supports this through application of both a top-down and a bottom-up design philosophy; full compliance with audit trail needs, system-level quality assurance, risk assessment and evaluation; and definition and documentation of all aspects of the program. It also provides a framework that incorporates appropriate systems management application to all program aspects. A principal advantage of this approach is that it disaggregates large and complex issues and problems into well-defined sequences of simpler problems and issues that are easier to understand, manage, and build.
