Our strategy and technology consultants have empowered our international clients with the knowledge and experience they need to build their own local resources and capabilities.
Our clients call upon us to work on their hardest problems—delivering effective health care, protecting warfighters and their families, keeping our national infrastructure secure, bringing into focus the traditional boundaries between consumer products and manufacturing as those boundaries blur.
Booz Allen was founded on the notion that we could help companies succeed by bringing them expert, candid advice and an outside perspective on their business. The analysis and perspective generated by that talent can be found in the case studies and thought leadership produced by our people.
We've come a long way delivering innovative solutions. But our next chapter is still being written.
Our 22,600 engineers, scientists, software developers, technologists, and consultants live to solve problems that matter. We’re proud of the diversity throughout our organization, from our most junior ranks to our board of directors and leadership team.
It’s the middle of the night and you wake up with crippling side pain. Convinced you’re suffering from a burst appendix, you hightail it to the emergency room (ER).
Depending on where you live you could wait hours to be seen. By applying data science to the treasure trove of open data now available from federal agencies, we learned that if you live in South Dakota, you’ll get ER care faster than anywhere else in the U.S.
The truth is out there. You just have to analyze it.
This is just one example of the insights we can gain by slicing and dicing open and accessible government data. It's all possible because we’re in the thick of an open data revolution. From the creation of data.gov and former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer’s $10 million investment in USAFacts, to the passing of the Digital Accountability and Transparency (DATA) Act, federal data is now widely available to all Americans. So what do we do with it? We explore that question in the podcast below.
For all three outcomes, according to 2016 data, South Dakota ranked the best.
This kind of data exploration is now possible because of the DATA Act, which Booz Allen helped put into practice by supporting the deployment of USASpending.gov as well as the enhanced beta site found here. That site is the jumping-off point for many types of data analysis.
With the right data science tools and techniques, the government can better allocate resources and solve problems strategically. We’re thrilled to announce that all government, military, and education clients can access our Sailfish public platform for free. We’ve absorbed Data.gov and USASpending.gov data into our system, so you and your team can start asking questions of your data and uncovering solutions to your own unique challenges.
