Boeing Information Solutions, of Arlington, Virginia, is joining forces with another Virginia-based company – Solutions Made Simple Inc. (SMSI). Based in Reston, Virginia, SMSI is an information services provider that is known for its Twister data integration framework products.
Prior to the acquisition, Boeing worked with SMSI over the past several years and, according to John Hinshaw, Boeing’s vice president and general manager of Information Solutions, believes this will be a “better, more cost-effective way to manage data across disparate networks.”. SMSI’s technology takes complex layers of information that are housed in an unlimited number of applications and various data sources, and makes that information easily available for users to access and extract. This type of technology is what Hinshaw sees as a “strong complement to [Boeing’s] existing capabilities.”
SMSI currently employs approximately 65 people. For additional information click here.
