Data Systems Analysts, Inc. (DSA) provides IT and consulting solutions that help customers protect the public welfare, safeguard the nation and promote freedom worldwide. “DSA has deep expertise and comprehensive understanding of the operational, security, collaboration and identity management challenges our customers must address,” says president, CEO and chairman of the board Frances R. Pierce. During its time in business, DSA has successfully navigated challenges like going public, becoming 100-percent employee owned and weathering an industry-wide downturn. After the downturn in the 1990s, Pierce says DSA achieved a remarkable turnaround, broadening its product base and service offerings, expanding its presence and extending its operations.
Quick Tip: “Do not give up. Do not let the naysayers get you down. Surround yourself with really good people.”

These relationships have helped DSA build a strong sense of loyalty among clients, with some relationships lasting 50 years. In addition, Pierce says that DSA employees passionately embrace the mission of each customer as their own, and do so with a strong work ethic, integrity and engagement.
