Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), Washington DC.

FERC is a small government agency involved in enforcing Energy and Utility Federal Regulations for the US Government.

The FERC needed to implement an Enterprise Architecture program within their organization using the Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework (FEAF) which would give them a clear idea of how efficient and effective their business processes were being supported by their technology processes. The client had gone through several Task Leaders(equivalent to Senior Project Managers in the private sector) but were unable to initiate defining the goals, objectives and processes that constituted an Enterprise Architecture effort. FERC required a company to 1) Define their Enterprise Architecture program, 2) Develop processes to accomplish a definition of their as-is Business and Technology Architecture, 3) Develop processes to orchestrate Business Process Re-engineering and Technology Process Re-engineering and define a to-be architecture, and 4) Develop a roadmap to transition from as-is to to-be architecture.


Raj International provided consulting services leading a group of Enterprise Architects and successfully interpreted FEAF for FERC to be able to define the program, define the processes required on the ground to conduct Enterprise Architecture and built a team for the client to accomplish their goals.

Dulles Medical Center, Sterling VA USA

Dulles Medical Center is an enterprise focusing on delivering healthcare services to the private as well as to the public sector employees. It also has a Real Estate division which mainly deals with leasing but also in acquisitions and sales.

Dulles Medical Center had outsourced the development of their integrated Medical Services/Medical Records system to a third party vendor and was two years behind schedule, and two hundred thousand dollars over budget. The client urgently needed a technically competent company with experience in turning around projects, to guide and turn-around this effort. The client had depleted their budget and was under a severe time crunch and therefore, they needed a company that could optimize time and money in the most efficient manner, while still delivering a quality product.

Raj provided services which entailed driving requirements analysis, handling technical Architecture, overseeing development, leading product delivery, testing, and quality assurance.
