Enterprise Systems Engineering

The Enterprise Systems Engineering (ESE) provides central systems engineering services and management of a technical framework promoting one technology vision across the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), which supports system optimization, integration and interoperability throughout the enterprise. Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of successful systems, proceeding from concept to production to operation.

Capacity and Performance Engineering Service

Capacity and Performance Engineering Service (CPE) provides requirements-based capacity and performance certification services to ensure IT systems meet or exceed all customer acceptance criteria and requirements and perform and operate as efficiently as possible in production. CPE works collaboratively with the Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) development project teams on analysis of capacity and performance engineering issues throughout the system development life cycle. CPE provides a leadership role with governance responsibility for capacity and performance evaluation at the enterprise and system platform level. See the CPE Service Areas for more information.


LRM Release Office

Release Management protects the production environment and its services through the use of formal procedures and checks that govern the scheduling and deployment of changes.

All planned releases into the Enterprise production environment, even defect repairs and maintenance releases, must register with the ESE Release Office in the Planning State. The Project Manager should meet briefly with the assigned Relase Office point of contact (POC) to confirm required artifacts and, in advance of Initial Operating Capability (IOC) start, provide access to those artifacts.
