QBE Builds New Concept Development Environment to Test Government IT Solutions


Leader in government technology consulting develops data center to test innovative IT solutions in real time

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Quality Business Engineering, a leading management and technology consulting organization for the federal government and focusing on the defense community, today announced that it has constructed a 1,000-square-foot Concept Development Environment at its Haymarket, Va., engineering headquarters.

“We are extremely excited to make this facility available to customers and partners that need to test and improve their IT solutions. This center replicates the qualities of current government data centers but in a smaller, more efficient and cost effective model,” said QBE president and CEO, Dr. Shawn Landry. “We have always believed in delivering proven solutions to our customers and this is the best possible way to do that in a real world environment.”

The new CDE, which exemplifies QBE’s “possible to proven” philosophy, will function as a multi-purpose facility for the company. The center will be divided into three separate rooms, with the largest being used as the data center, the second for security enclave purposes, and the third will serve as a board room for conferences and briefings. The data center component is built in a modular fashion, allowing solutions to be easily isolated or integrated, depending on requirements. This will enable QBE to develop new products, test customers’ IT solutions and run trials on new technologies as they emerge.

Earlier this year, QBE was awarded a blanket purchase agreement to provide engineering services to support the U.S. Army’s IT transformation efforts. The company is currently utilizing the CDE to demonstrate the Army’s architecture for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as Service (PaaS) Cloud Computing capabilities.
