“I had the good fortune as PennDOT’s CIO to participate in a commonwealth event promoting the use of open data. The contest challenged vendors from across Pennsylvania to develop a solution that would proactively identify roads that are at a higher risk for an accident due to a variety of pre-defined reasons. Vendors had a very short period of time to develop a working solution and when the contest/evaluation was complete, LingaTech won the award due to their far superior solution. Their ability to leverage existing data sources to provide a user-friendly, and most importantly an accurate predictive model was extremely impressive. This solution has the capability to provide PennDOT with the information necessary to proactively plan improvements on these high-risk locations. LingaTech has proven to me that they can develop solutions leveraging data from various sources that not only meets but exceeds business needs.”

Our project received the PA Excellence in Technology award from the Governor’s Office. For this project, LingaTech provided leadership and SOA web services and a mobile development team that architected and engineered a SOA solution for our commonwealth client. We identified core business processes and implemented reusable business process architecture to develop a core mobile app that facilitates field inspections. This base structure was extended to develop program-specific mobile apps quickly and cost-effectively by reusing code and components across the various business units. As identified in the Award Notice “This greatly cut development time and IT could put a time and money-saving solution into the hands of the inspectors much quicker. In fact, development time was cut from 13 months to 3-4 months for each new inspection type…the Agency has also seen at least a 20% increase in inspector efficiency and has cut the total inspection process from data collection to data entry from an average of 10 days to 1 day.”

Harrisburg, PA – As part of his commitment to level the playing field for small and diverse businesses, Governor Tom Wolf today announced the launch of the Commonwealth’s Mentor-Protégé Program (MPP) for Small Diverse Businesses. The program pairs successful prime contractors with small diverse businesses (SDBs) to better develop their technical and administrative capabilities to compete for state government contracting opportunities.
Small diverse businesses are those owned by minorities, women, LGBT, veterans and people with disabilities. In the inaugural year of the Mentor-Protégé Program created by the Department of General Services, Unisys has been matched with LingaTech as a Mentor.
“We have a responsibility to ensure that opportunities to compete for state contracting is diverse, inclusive, and fair,” Governor Wolf said. “We have taken an aggressive and innovative approach to achieving that goal, and the Mentor-Protégé Program is another resource that we can now point to in those efforts.”
