WDACS is desirous of making significant improvements to the offered services through infrastructure planning and effective use of technology. The Department needed an experienced vendor for infrastructure assessment and improvement including:

WATI provided written recommendations of system requirements, integration of WDACS line operational systems, WDACS specific applications and the Oracle Data warehouse.
WATI supported the application server hardware, including the use of remote monitoring tools and established component replacement procedures with the manufacturer.
WATI maintained the Enterprise Linux operating systems — on development, test and production environments, including installation of enhancements, bug fixes, security packages, resource optimization, recovery and monitoring and supported mid-tier servers and Oracle Database Servers including inbound and outbound data movement, ETL processes, and web services.
