The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) needed to develop and deploy an agency-wide mission critical IT system to replace the legacy system that no longer adequately met all the agency’s needs. The legacy system was composed of antiquated technology, disparate systems, and possessed limited ability to address information reporting needs of the Federal and State Government employees that perform occupation safety and health activities.
LinkVisum Consulting Group conducted sessions with client stakeholders to gather, define, and produce detailed functional requirements to support OSHA’s targeted business operations. Our team designed the new solution based on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) framework and the Java application components. The system development activity also involved the planning, acquisition, and implementation of the technical environments for development, testing, and production. We also performed data modeling, data cleansing, and other data quality activities. LinkVisum gathered user access requirements to develop the application security model and configured the application and infrastructure based on required moderate security controls. We engaged in planning and implementation of processes and tools to support configuration/ change management practices, enabling the proper management of source control and other changes.
- Developed a solution that facilitated the process execution of enforcement and compliance activities performed by OSHA staff, improving upon the legacy system requirement that process execution occur around system limitations
- Consolidated information into a common repository structure that will provide a ten-fold improvement in data quality and consistency
- Established cost saving centralized technical infrastructure that would reduce agency operations and maintenance costs
- Defined architecture that provides the flexibility for the OIS business logic to be reused or redeployed using another web application framework in the future
