Highlight Technologies’ Rebecca Andino Saves DHS Money & Time

Highlight Technologies is helping to modernize the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Intelligence and Decision Support (IIDS) System Enterprise Data Warehouse. In support of prime contractor Northrop Grumman, Highlight enhances and maintains the data model, develops reports and helps to implement additional data sources.

Highlight Technologies improved the performance of a critical, high-visibility report for ICE. Highlight staff analyzed the report, identified design weaknesses, and re-architected the queries, schemas, mappings and relationships used by the report. We reduced the time to generate the report from two days to approximately three hours, and were able to eliminate intermediate manual processes. Highlight’s enhancements saved time, contractor resources, and reduced risk in generating this high-profile report, which is disseminated at the Departmental level and beyond.
