Among the powerful benefits of distributed delivery:
Booz Allen’s own experience shows that distributed delivery is both practical and effective. We are using distributed delivery to build client solutions that leverage the collective expertise of our 5,000+ digital professionals—what we call our Digital Solutions Network.
Our software development work is distributed across the Digital Solutions Network, in physical locations—or hubs—and virtually. Because of this flexible network, we’re able to quickly put together the diverse talent needed for even the most complex client engagement. We don’t have to spend time hiring and onboarding developers for a particular project—we rapidly assemble the necessary talent, and start on Day One. And we just as easily scale up or down as conditions change.
Our distributed delivery has also enabled us to build upon our well-established culture of reuse. Through our inner-sourcing model—essentially, an internal open-source community at Booz Allen—we develop, continuously improve, and reuse the advanced components that we create.
Our experience shows the full power of distributed delivery—digital on demand. By tapping our firmwide expertise, and reusing proven components, we’re able to provide our clients with high-quality digital solutions, at less cost, to solve their most complex problems.
We found that distributed delivery has yet another benefit. It gives our digital professionals an exciting environment in which to work and grow. They get the chance to innovate across markets, achieve technical mastery of diverse skill sets, and solve complex, ever-changing challenges. In addition, the Digital Solutions Network is an important part of our connective tissue—it enables our staff to collaborate in a technical guild, give and receive mentorship, and be part of a community of like-minded digital professionals.
