Data Systems Analysts (DSA) is an employee owned professional services provider. We invited President, CEO and Chairman of the Board, Frances Pierce to talk us through the firm and the wide range of solutions it offers.
Founded in 1963, DSA has deep expertise and comprehensive understanding of the operational, security, and collaboration challenges that its customers must address. The firm was founded by a team of engineers who, while working for RCA Corporation, developed the software for one of the largest wide area data communications networks in the U.S. Frances outlines how the firm has grown since it was established and provides an overview of the services it now provides. “Since its inception, DSA has played an important role in supporting the U.S. Federal Government. We work directly with the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Energy, U.S. Armed Services, Defense Intelligence Agency, Defense Information System Agency (DISA) and several Intelligence Community organizations. “Our solutions encompass program and knowledge management, business process engineering and security, and our services include cyber security, software development, SharePoint solutions, data analytics, and systems engineering and integration. “DSA is recognized by the U.S. Army as an award-winning leader in Knowledge Management expertise. We understand how to analyze, architect, implement and integrate secure COTS collaboration suites that transform the work environment into a collaboration culture. We recognize that the concepts and principles of Collaboration and Knowledge Management are crucial to the successful future of an organization as they are today.
Global access to information and planning tools is vital to enterprise members who travel or are dispersed, yet need to stay connected. Implementing this new channel for decisionmaking, group interaction, and system support enhances team performance and significantly reduces travel and communications cost, which is ultimately what draws clients to our firm.” The company’s business philosophy has always boiled down to having relationships of trust with customers and employees, which has enabled it to enjoy client relationships spanning as many as 50 years. Fran explains how the firm’s entire ethos is geared towards enhancing client loyalty and supporting customers in order to facilitate this. “Relationships are built on successful delivery, integrity, and mutual trust. Decades of experience in delivering solutions in heavily regulated environments also sets the company apart. Loyal customers return with repeat business, and new customers are attracted due to innovative technology solutions and the company’s reputation for service. “The company’s leadership inspires this same dedication and loyalty in the company’s employees. We are rightfully proud of the strong work ethic and collaborative culture that drives the company. Capitalizing on DSA’s in-depth knowledge of the industry, we are uniquely positioned as a recognized leader in the field of secure information sharing with an outstanding reputation for integrity and client satisfaction. This sustained entrepreneurship has fuelled the company’s continued growth.

“To further leverage DSA’s position in the Defense and Intelligence marketplaces, the company’s leaders created the DSA Federal Advisory Board (FAB) in 2004. The vast experience and insights of the eight industry luminaries serving on the board has stimulated still greater success for the company.” In recent years the business has shifted its role from a subcontractor to larger companies in the industry to prime contractor managing large teams of subcontractor companies in support of customers’ missions. DSA has an expanded presence in key markets, and extended operations to six regional offices with over 250 employees. Moving forward, Fran makes it clear that the firm is not resting on its laurels despite the phenomenal success it has achieved in recent years and is eager to grow and expand in order to better support a wider client base. “DSA is keenly focused on growth and serving our customers. We are actively pursuing contracts that will extend DSA’s presence into new areas of the country. We strategically analyze opportunities that allow us to provide expertise and expand our customer base. With this in mind, we support our customer’s mission, whatever it may be. “Our ultimate goal for the future is to continue DSA’s history of innovation by focusing on cyber security, enterprise-wide solutions, cloud services and mobile applications.”
