Blue Canopy Wins Federal DHS Science & Technology Award

Leading Technology Services Provider’s Successful Big Data Program Recognized for Outstanding Contributions to Homeland Security

RESTON, Virginia (July 6, 2015)—Blue Canopy Group, LLC., a leading Big Data Analytics and Enterprise IT consultancy and service provider, has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security with the 2015 DHS Science & Technology Under Secretary Award for Outstanding Program in contribution to Law Enforcement — the highest award for contractors within the Science & Technology (S&T) directorate. Blue Canopy will be honored at an awards ceremony July 23, 2015, in Washington, DC.

Blue Canopy’s Big Data Environment (BDE) “APEX” Program at the DHS S&T Directorate received the prestigious contracting honor. The DHS S&T program takes a close strategic look at the nation’s security and addresses future challenges, while continuing to support current operational agency needs.

“We are honored to receive such a prestigious government award for supporting such a vital mission which daily contributes to our nation’s security in a tangible way,” said Reuben Maher, Partner, National Security at Blue Canopy. “We look forward to our ongoing successful partnership with DHS S&T as we continue delivering needle-moving mission capabilities.”

DHS S&T partners with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) to deliver next-generation data storage and analytical capabilities to ICE HSI agents in their investigative work. Blue Canopy was selected to design, build, integrate, test and deploy a Big Data Environment in support of the program. Using lessons learned from previous, successful data analytics roll-outs, Blue Canopy designed the ICE BDE pilot program within three months. Although the initial mission goal was to serve only one client, DHS leadership immediately recognized the much broader potential of the Blue Canopy solution for use in other investigative domains.

“Blue Canopy is quickly earning a reputation as a premier provider of highly scalable Big Data Analytics capabilities to the Federal government, not only conceptualizing successful solutions, but building and rapidly delivering them in complex mission environments,” said Maher.
