Web Application Development

We build responsive web applications with the end-user in mind and your mission in focus. We’ve been utilizing innovative design principles like human-centric design and UI/UX and leveraging open source technology for over 14 years.

We are a driving force behind the adoption of open source technologies by organizations across the industry.

We use an open-source first approach including development with the following languages – Java, Ruby on Rails, Groovy & Grails, PHP & Drupal, Python, Javascript, etc.

Our responsive web application development focuses on modern and innovative design principles such as CSS 3 responsive grids, mobile-first design with dynamic page layout, UI/UX focus with human-centric design, and a strong commitment to 508 accessibility standards.

Interactive wireframes designed by experienced UI experts are key to creating the best user experience for your complex business use cases.

Our applications have supported a variety of mission-critical government objectives in multiple domains including: health data and safety, law enforcement and transportation, GIS, OMB, environmental regulations, content syndication, and data management.

Content Management

Our experience with cutting edge, open-source & proprietary content management systems (CMS) allow our clients to collaborate and communicate more efficiently. Our focus on integration, expansion, and customization allow our clients to continually develop new ways to reach their end-users.

CTAC manages next-generation unified Content Management Systems consisting of 700+ cloud servers for our clients highest profile sites and related systems.

Our CMP open-source technology stacks include popular open source CMS’ like Drupal and WordPress, but also integrations with key enterprise offerings such as Salesforce, MailChimp, and MuleSoft.

Our APIs facilitate content, media and social media sharing, publishing, syndication, and reuse within a core set of content types and taxonomies.

API/Open Data

In an era where products/software can have increasingly short life spans, well designed and documented APIs play a key role in maximizing data and IT investments across the enterprise.

CTAC has designed and implemented multiple systems for the Federal Government that utilize the API development standards.

We develop modern ReSTful services, powered by industry standard frameworks, and featuring innovative technology like Swagger (The OpenAPI Specification) & JSON.

Our APIs are designed to be robust and secure, leveraging fast in-memory caching, global regional availability, CDNs, encryption, public/private key security, OAuth security, and integration with existing infrastructure such as LDAP, OMB MAX, and Okta.

Platform as-a-Service (PaaS)

CTAC has built and deployed a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for HHS, GSA, and CPSC allowing those customers to develop, run, and manage applications without the complexity of building and maintaining the infrastructure typically associated with application development. At GSA, CTAC has been able to lower platform on-boarding costs by 50%.

By codifying our infrastructure (infrastructure as code) we enable better testing and quality control, more efficient and predictable deployments, and decreased recovery times. This allows clients to realize the potential of the Cloud in full.

CTAC PaaS allows for higher-level programming with dramatically reduced complexity.

Our PaaS supports instance and container-based workloads.

Built-in infrastructure making it flexible and adaptive to project.

Maintenance and enhancement of the application is easier. Self-service for development teams and release managers (you don’t need to wait on a operations personnel).
