Ariel assisted the FBI with transitioning from a traditional Waterfall development methodology to an Agile/DevOps approach.  Provide Tier III operational support for 450 labs in 50 countries.  Deliver bug fixes and major system enhancements.  Significantly improved the performance of the CODIS software reducing the time it takes to prepare DNA records for cross-searching from 10 hours to 20 minutes.  Established the Continuous Integration of CODIS, which has 2 million lines of Microsoft .NET-based code written in five programming languages.  Awarded a 10-year contract for new development and maintenance of CODIS with Lockheed Martin and ECS Federal.


Ariel consultants work with HBO’s Digital Products division building tools and technologies to support HBO’s flagship HBO GO, HBO NOW, and website media streaming platforms.  Ariel provided Full-Stack Developers working with cutting-edge technologies on the PERN stack (PostgreSQL, Express, ReactJS/Redux and Node.JS).   Ariel consultants developed a set of tools to facilitate on-boarding and off-boarding of new staff that automates and centralizes provisioning of Enterprise tools such as GitHub, WebStorm, Slack, VictorOps, YouTrack, BlueJeans, and Artifactory.   Ariel consultants created a permissioning micro service to centralize authorization across internally-developed applications. Ariel consultants are working with HBO teams to develop a platform for capturing and reporting performance metrics that will be used to analyze service usage, detect outages, watch deployments and generate alerts.  The platform uses custom analytics and leverages Grafana for visualizations.  All applications are developed using an AWS-cloud based DevOps pipeline that enables rapid development of new applications with development, staging, and production instances all running in cloud-based Docker containers.  100% automated test coverage is maintained for every application and micro-service using a combination of unit tests (using mocha/chai/sinon) and feature-based integration tests (using CucumberJS/selenium/protractor).  This approach (100% automated testing coverage, 100% DevOps automation from development to production) has drastically reduced HBO’s system administration costs, enabling HBO to focus more on developing compelling new user experiences.


Ariel placed some of the most specialized financial technologists for Liquidnet. We have retained Full-Stack Developers and Architects with PM/BA skills, UX/UI Designers, and a Senior WPF/C# developer to augment Liquidnet’s Trading Technology with a real-time front-end trading application.


Ariel helped build a high profile internal consulting unit for AIG’s Reinsurance division. We retained a Sr. Finance Program Manager to lead the restructuring projects for AIG’s Reinsurance Finance department and placed a Lead Business Analyst to manage all business and technical requirements for its Global Reinsurance division

American Re-Insurance

Ariel Partners improved net margins by providing lead financial officers better means of calculating profitability and estimating reserve requirements. We also spearheaded an enterprise-wide business process reengineering
effort, working intensively with top executives to remap major corporate processes.

We improved the efficiency of the IT division by instituting standards and processes for component-based development. We devised and instituted new processes for requirements management, business process analysis, technology project proposal, inception, and management, and an improved software development process. 

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Ariel consultants performed a detailed project assessment on a mission-critical $5M project. We helped bring the project under control by improving processes and tools for asset management and communication. We documented additional roles and
responsibilities and provided an automated framework for improving configuration and software release management. Our efforts included mentoring, tutorial presentations, and
detailed "cookbook" documentation.

Fidelity Investments

Ariel consultants significantly reduced business risk by developing a counter-party financial screening technology, the Credit and Risk Management Application (CARMA). Developed in less than six months, the CARMA system provided credit usage and exposure calculations updated in real-time for all of Fidelity's equity trading customers. The CARMA system helps Fidelity avoid potentially multi-million dollar losses due to counter-party default.
