Through our experience, we have found that successful IT does not come in a box. It takes good people, good ideas and good tools to achieve success.
People - At BNL, we believe that bright, innovative thinkers are the starting point of any great solution. Combined with a strong work ethic and a dedication to quality, these individuals make up the cornerstone of any successful IT effort.
Ideas - Whether it is web services or BI implementations, without innovative ideas, the out-of-the-box answer will rarely meet the needs of most organizations. To craft the best solutions requires ideas that blend best-in-practice solutions with innovative answers to technological and business problems.
Tools - By leveraging the world's best tools for analytics, visualizations, and integrations, the shaping of powerful, yet flexible, solutions is made possible. Put these tools in the hands of innovative thinkers, and the potential is limitless.

Past Performance
We have delivered over a hundred applications to both government and commercial organizations while maintaining a proven and consistent track record of completing projects and deliverables on or ahead of schedule. Our projects are often enterprise level, but we also create Proof of Value/Concept applications to quickly test ideas for our customers. We list some key projects below:
U.S. Census Bureau – we have redesigned a mission critical enterprise application called StEPS (Standard Economic Processing System) from an all SAS based approach to an SOA design using Java and SAS. The key technology pieces are SAS EBI, SAS Grid, Java J2EE and Eclipse RCP. BNL has also been tasked with coaching the Census on-site staff on these new SAS and Java technologies.
Health Care Incentives Improvement Institute, Inc - HCI3 has created a broad range of programs to measure outcomes, reduce care defects, promote a team approach to caring for patients, realign payment incentives around quality and reward excellence. BNL developed an interactive, web-based, transaction application that facilitated the management of medical codes and the organization of those codes into episodes.
U.S. Office of Personnel Management - One of the functions of the Office of the Investigator (OIG) is to identify cases of medical fraud based on millions of medical entries filed on behalf of Federal employees' medical plans. In an effort to improve their ability to identify such fraudulent cases, BNL was tasked to provide a query tool that allowed for such queries. Using Flex, Java and SAS we have created such as tool.
National Collaborative for Bio-Preparedness - The National Collaborative for Bio-Preparedness (NCB-Prepared) responds to federal and state agencies' need to accurately detect and rapidly analyze biological hazards to ensure public health and safety. They accomplish this with a comprehensive system that both improves surveillance, awareness and responsiveness to emergent threats, and supports better care and health outcomes for Americans. NCB-P Visualization will demonstrate capabilities to access initially a small number of data sources at local, state and federal levels, perform analytics on the data, and display analytical and other results that support bio-surveillance efforts that empower both decision makers and first-responders.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: WISQARS (Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System)-The function of the WISQARS team is to develop and maintain an interactive database system that provides customized reports of injury-related data to the public. BNL has been tasked with developing multiple web applications which are fed data by a combination of Java and SAS systems. As part of each of these efforts, BNL is required to complete the implementation, complete training and mentoring of WISQARS staff on the various components developed, and to enable the WISQARS staff to take over future development and maintenance efforts. Differentiators SAS Focused
BNL was started by former SAS employees of many years and is a key services provider for SAS, especially in the Public Sector. This tight relationship helps us to keep up to date with the SAS technology and to leverage our experience working SAS projects across verticals. We have a strong set of SAS consultants on staff and our network of sub-contractors keeps our talent level high. The majority of our projects are SAS-centric but we many times perform additional development using Java or Flex as needed. Experience
Most of our employees have 15+ years of experience in the industry and have proven experts covering SAS, Java and Flex development from end to end. We have implemented hundreds of applications ranging from smaller scale to enterprise class for both public sector and commercial clients. We deliver on time and on budget to make your project a success. We have extensive experience with every aspect of SAS and SAS solution engineering. We have established standards for Base SAS coding techniques, SAS project structures, and SAS configurations. Mentorship
As experts in SAS and SAS solutions, we take pride in not only the design and implementation of powerful SAS solutions, but also in enabling the client to utilize these solutions fully and maintain them independently by mentoring and coaching the existing client staff on how to maximize their investment in SAS and in SAS-related technologies. Additionally, we have developed an internal process for training our own SAS developers that standardizes the process for training, coaching, and educating new SAS developers. Innovation
We have been at the forefront of solutions for SOA development, SAS business intelligence/analytics and dashboard development using Flex. We have created our own tools to make our development processes repeatable and cost effective. Our developers and designers are the best of the best and we are ready to deliver.
