About STP

What We Do

A business’s success or failure often depends on its ability to deliver its services to its customers via information technology. Those who invest wisely in their IT capability will increase sales by expanding their customer base and increase profit by reducing costs. For over 15 years, customers have called upon STP to build their mission critical IT systems. They choose STP because we know how to architect, develop and deploy enterprise solutions that perform essential functions. Just as only certain construction companies are capable of building a skyscraper, only certain IT companies are capable of producing industrial grade systems. There are few companies like STP who have hands-on experience and expertise building large scale implementations with a consistent track record of doing so on-time and within budget.

Building Essential Services for the Federal Government

Customers such as the IRS, have entrusted STP to build its IT foundation via infrastructure shared services, secure its online applications with identity and access management, and improve its efficiency by fully automating its software deployments. The systems we build for the IRS are a foundation for the collection, processing and management of taxes, detecting fraudulent activity, providing customer service, and allowing taxpayers to utilize self-service applications to meet their responsibilities. 

Infrastructure

Over 100 STP technical experts have designed, built and deployed the modernized IT infrastructure at the IRS. We know how to construct the foundation of an enterprise that securely supports billions of transactions, in a scalable, reliable, high performing environment that is available 24x7. 

Cybersecurity

Since 2005, STP has built identity and access management systems that keep bad actors out, while allowing authorized users in. The IRS has entrusted STP to engineer and develop systems that protects sensitive data about hundreds of millions of individuals and businesses. Given our strong track record at the IRS, we are currently tasked with architecting their next generation capability. 

Automation

Relying on humans to manually deploy software is both error prone and time consuming. At the IRS, STP engineers developed an approach to fully automate software deployments across tens of thousands of servers during narrow installation windows. Automation has saved the IRS millions of dollars while establishing a consistent baseline that ensures availability of its systems to the millions of taxpayers it serves. 

Engineering

STP’s IT engineering experience spans the entire implementation over its full lifecycle. Our hands-on experience architecting and engineering systems for the IRS has given STP the unique engineering know-how to solve a customer’s greatest of challenges through IT. We have engineered systems that can never fail, scale to seasonal peak demands, protect against attacks from enemy nations, and are assessable to anyone who needs to use the systems’ services. 

Application Development

Our developers have created millions of lines of code for secure large-scale distributed implementations. We know how to develop complex systems that provide essential services to millions of users and are prime targets for hackers worldwide. We build software that scales without needing additional hardware, can withstand peak loads, provide quick response times, and are free of security vulnerabilities. 

Staff Augmentation

Some businesses choose to support their IT systems in-house. When your business requires additional resources to strengthen your organization, STP will provide you with experienced personnel that are ready to hit the ground running. Our people have a long and successful history of performing within secure environments. Over 150 STP staff members have received government clearances to support critical projects.
