Empower AI | October 03, 2022
Empower AI (formerly NCI Information Systems), a leading provider of artificial intelligence and other technologies to U.S. government agencies, today announced that it has launched a set of new AI solutions that will provide federal technology leaders with the power to swiftly transform existing programs into future-ready systems.
The AI solution set, called Empower AI Develops, leverages natural language processing, machine learning, and hyperautomation capabilities to rapidly analyze and define the current state of an agency’s IT systems, including existing or future computer code. It then provides precise guidance on the best path forward to accelerate accurate and secure development with AI in an immersive experience that augments and enhances human developers. As a result, Empower AI Develops accelerates rapid modernization while minimizing disruption and risk for federal agencies.
“One of the biggest concerns we hear from our federal customers is the volume of code, the lack of documentation, and the potential vulnerabilities in their IT systems,” said Paul Dillahay, president and CEO of Empower AI. “Every agency has a challenge, to some degree, with legacy code built by many generations of developers and methodologies. Over time, security methods that were used in that code become vulnerable or provide other risks, which can lead to poor performance or even larger concerns.”
To address this challenge and others facing federal IT leaders, Dillahay said Empower AI technologists wanted to create a solution that enabled federal leaders to quickly understand the complete picture of their assets and vulnerabilities in their own environment, and then use AI to help them analyze and develop new code in a fraction of the time and cost it would take human developers, while decreasing the risk introduced by traditional modernization efforts.
“This set of solutions will help federal technology leaders accelerate their modernization initiatives by shortening software development cycles to minimize disruption and risk,” Dillahay said.
The Empower AI Develops product suite includes:
Code Analyzer: Uses natural language processing (NLP), machine learning, and a set of proprietary algorithms to perform a comprehensive analysis and report on any existing code.
Code Programmer: Reviews and ingests any existing codebase using DevSecOps methodology. Once the codebase has been evaluated and documented, the AI Code Programmer tools generate refactored, object-oriented code and/or entirely new code from natural language function descriptions.
Infrastructure Developer: Creates code with seamless integration into the continuous integration / continuous development pipeline, allowing for connections into help desk applications, as well as DevSecOps components and other CI/CD pipeline software while integrating approved static and variable security tools.
Dillahay noted that additional solutions in the Empower AI Develops product suite are being tested now that will help federal leaders on other legacy code challenges, including code refactoring and story programming. All elements of the new product will help federal IT leaders elevate their mission-critical programs using proven AI technologies at scale.
“In addition to helping agencies modernize their code and documentation quickly, these solutions will also help agencies realize gains from investments they’ve made in the cloud or other security enhancements,” Dillahay said. “We’re really looking forward to helping them advance their missions and performance in a cost-effective way.”

CoreView | July 11, 2022
CoreView, the global leader in Microsoft 365 Management, today announced the expansion of its business operations in Australia, aimed at strengthening the company’s partnerships with clients in the Asia-Pacific market and responding to increasing demand in the region. This announcement comes in conjunction with the hiring of Chris Lawley as Regional Manager — an expert in SaaS platforms and technology, currently based in Sydney.
This expansion comes on the heels of a period of rapid growth for the company, as CoreView has grown by nearly 229 percent in the last 3 years — taking its mission to manage the chaos of Microsoft 365 to a variety of new partners and regions. In tandem with this growth, CoreView has continued to help customers better manage Microsoft 365 — including adding advanced capabilities for managing Microsoft Teams, Teams Voice, and hybrid environments.
“I am beyond excited to help introduce and expand CoreView’s presence in Australia and the wider APAC region,” said Lawley. “There is such a clear need for a data- and insights-driven management solution like CoreView, particularly given how heavily regulated security and compliance are in this market. As such, I have no doubt that CoreView will provide a number of benefits to our current and future partners here, helping uplevel IT management in the Microsoft 365 space.”
Already working with resellers in North America, Europe and the Middle East, CoreView also recently signed strategic deals with Data3 and rhipe — a Crayon Company — leaders in cloud solutions and technology in Asia-Pacific — with a healthy pipeline of additional relationships and deals lined up. As the premier Microsoft 365 management solution, CoreView’s goal is to empower partners with the data, insights, and actionable processes necessary to support operational improvements and enable real transformation for customers.
CoreView stops the chaos and gets Microsoft 365 under control. The CoreView Microsoft 365 Management Platform helps IT teams get the full value from Microsoft 365, gain full oversight of their environment, and move at full speed.
