Software Engineering

At NextGen, we apply a systematic, disciplined, quantifiable approach to the design, development, operation, and maintenance of software and are dedicated to the advancement of these approaches; that is, the application of engineering principles to the development of software. It is the application of engineering to software that allows for the integration of significant mathematics, computer science and other practices whose origins are in engineering. It is this systematic approach to the analysis, design, assessment, implementation, testing, maintenance and re-engineering of software that sets NextGen Federal Systems apart.
