Clarity Business Solutions and MongoDB
Cloud-based transformation is now a must-have for federal agencies. And, in partnership with MongoDB, Clarity Business Solutions is making that transformation easier for government agencies, particularly those that work in closed, air-gapped environments and that require security clearances for their support staff. Clarity Business Solutions and MongoDB are working together to support public sector clients.
Clarity Business Solutions offers public sector clients a proven, iterative approach to application modernization. Clarity’s security clearances allow them to sit side-by-side with public sector clients when necessary, and Clarity has deep experience with the environments common to government agencies.
Clarity and MongoDB leverage a strategic process for analyzing legacy applications and modernizing and migrating them iteratively, rather than trying to update an entire system in a “big bang” approach.
This iterative approach allows clients to modernize without downtime.
Legacy and modernized systems can run in parallel for a period of time, enabling troubleshooting and increasing confidence.
Clarity and MongoDB combine the power of the MongoDB application data platform with Clarity’s extensive client domain knowledge. This partnership allows teams to focus on the application feature development and quickly get the data platform operational.

Trusted Tier Support
Clarity Business Solutions and MongoDB are offering a concierge support service specifically for the public sector.
Trusted Tier Support engages U.S.-only technical staff, with appropriate clearances, to provide phone, online, or even on-site support for MongoDB government customers.
Trusted Tier Support provides continuity between call-in support and support offered by individuals with on-site clearance.
Clarity Trusted Tier Support engineers are tightly integrated with the MongoDB support team and can rely on the expertise of the broader MongoDB engineering organization while ensuring that all necessary details remain confidential.
Service-level agreements are twice the MongoDB published response times for commercial support.

This new service helps public sector clients get operational with MongoDB as quickly and efficiently as possible. This intense, short engagement ensures the following:
Networking layouts are optimized and secured using appropriate firewall rules and TLS to encrypt all data in transit.
Data storage is set up to meet applications’ needs.
Backup and recovery are properly enabled.
Agencies have the proper guidance to achieve environment security requirements. For example, data at rest is encrypted according to client requirements through disk encryption and/or MongoDB’s encrypted storage engine. Data in use can be protected with client-side field-level encryption.

An application assessment done by Clarity Business Solutions can ensure that your MongoDB environment is properly architected, meets the requirements of security technical implementation guides (STIGs), is properly tuned and queries are optimized for operational efficiency. Our team of engineers will utilize a proven approach, leveraging the Application Qualification Scorecard (AQS) to evaluate the suitability of MongoDB for both new applications and application migrations. The AQS scores MongoDB and other databases against multiple criteria.
