DSPEC is providing a seasoned team of Enterprise Architecture professionals to formulate an agile Enterprise Architecture program, define and review current business practices, and collaborate with Voice of America’s leadership to compose a future standards-based architecture. DSPEC’s enterprise architects will catalog, map, and standardize the tools, technologies, formats, personnel, and processes that Voice of America employs daily to create and broadcast media. These models, in conjunction with meticulous communication between DSPEC’s architects and Voice of America’s leadership, will enable DSPEC to deliver an enterprise roadmap that measures, analyzes, and closes the gaps between Voice of America’s current and future capabilities. This venture will enable Voice of America to introduce changes that streamline business practices, lower costs, eliminate redundant processes, and reduce workload while strengthening and enhancing its core business operations.
