AoA FOR REPORTING CAPABILITIES

CHALLENGE

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) required a new software capability for implementing acreage reporting/inventory reporting (AR/IR) functionality.

ACTION

SERVICES PROVIDED

ZYGOS led an AoA to select the most appropriate alternative for implementing AR/IR at USDA. Alternatives analyzed included a modified version of the legacy system currently providing the functionality, an SAP ERP based solution, and a new Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) solution. The project leveraged ZYGOS’ seven-step AoA methodology that included development of a weighted evaluation model with rigorous assessment criteria to compare the three alternatives.
