The key to successfully developing software is to employ a team who has a well-defined set of methodologies and processes, who understands the normal pitfalls of software development and how to navigate around them, and who can deliver products which can be deployed in myriad target architectures-from legacy such as web-based and client-server to Service Oriented Architectures (SOA).
Our approach relies heavily on repeatable processes and leverages technology to automate and expedite key critical repetitive tasks within the software development lifecycle to provide high quality, high assurance software products developed within a compressed timeline. We accomplish this by integrating SEI's CMMI Level 3 principles, an Agile development methodology, and Software Assurance industry's best practices to build in a high degree of security, quality, and reliability while managing cost and schedule.
Up and Running (UAR) Inc. stands apart from other development firms; its proprietary methodologies and use of technology significantly reduces the cost of building and sustaining software systems. We have experience modernizing legacy systems, deriving the fully articulated business requirements from the existing codebase and refactoring them to meet modernization goals quicker and at a significantly lower cost. We also have experience with cutting edge technologies such as Business Rules engines implementation and SOA modernization. We focus on proper capture of customer requirements, validated by prototyping, storyboarding, and modeling. We build high assurance, high value systems within an expedited time frame and diminished cost by leveraging technology, proprietary methodologies, well-defined repeatable processes, and engineered to fit into the target architecture.
SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT TO SERVICE ORIENTED ARCHITECTURE (SOA)
Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) has become the leading industry paradigm for software development. SOA-enabled software is inherently modular and reusable, with some profoundly beneficial qualities including: flexibility, agility and, above all, cost efficiency. To truly realize these benefits, however, companies must first implement the software infrastructure designed to enable and support SOA-based development.
UAR's approach to web service development is to use an architecture oriented around services. Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is often pictured one of two different ways. One fundamental perception is that SOA is simply converting legacy functionality to web services. Another perspective sees SOA as exposing data as web services. Both of these have some validity, but SOA is more than expressing business logic as a web service or exposing data through Web Services Description Language (WSDL). WSDL is a model for describing web services which is an XML - based language.

Benefits of VoIP and VoSIP
VoIP and VoSIP combine voice and data networks onto a single network, creating an environment in which applications like email, efax and web conferencing are easily integrated. Benefits include cost savings, call clarity, reliability, security, flexibility and greater system features. Conference calling is enhanced, as participants communicate in real time, sharing presentations, documents and other files simultaneously between offices. VoIP and VoSIPcan also accommodate textual communication side by side with the verbal communication.
Up and Running will begin by conducting an assessment of your organization to determine your specific requirements. Whether you need traditional VoIP or a voice-over secured IP, our experts create and implement a customized plan for your organization. After installation of your new system is complete, Up and Running’s sustainment services ensure that you are receiving optimum value from your VoIP or VoSIP system.
We use Cisco, Vertical and Avaya telephone systems and can secure calls made over a public network or utilize a secure network, depending on your organization’s needs.
**Up and Running recently entered into a partnership that will change the way phone service is delivered to the Department of Defense (DoD). By moving to a secured VoIP phone system, the government will cut communications costs over 40 percent!

Up and Running’s Fingerprint Authorization is potentially the most affordable and convenient method of identity verification. Fingerprint Authorization is a common means to verify identity, as it is the simplest, least-invasive and most reliable form of personal identification.
Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID)
Improve inventory tracking at various stages of production with Radio-Frequency Identification.
RFID is an automatic identification method, which relies on storing and remotely retrieving data using devices called RFID tags or transponders. An RFID tag can be attached to or incorporated into a product, animal or person for the purpose of identification using radio waves. RFID reduces cycle times through automation, lowers operational risks, improves return on investment and enhances customer satisfaction and loyalty.
