SAP NS2 provides computing, analytics and cloud solutions. “Our solutions help leaders better manage the business of the mission from the back office to the battlefield, delivering a critical offset over the adversary,” says Mark Testoni, president and CEO of SAP NS2. The company is 100 percent U.S.-based and U.S.-staffed.
Words of Wisdom: “Believe in your vision. Be patiently impatient. Act decisively and boldly.”
SAP NS2 believes government and private-sector companies must work in close collaboration to ensure ultimate mission success. One example of this collaboration is SAP NS2’s annual Solutions Summit, an event that brings together more than 800 government and private-sector leaders in the national security space for a day-long conversation looking at the most important national security challenges. Past events have focused on the “human element” and empowering people to drive U.S. national security.
In 2014, Testoni founded NS2 Serves, an independent nonprofit organization established to train and employ veterans in high-tech careers. The program runs for three months, and participants are trained in software solutions that support U.S. national security. “This concept tackles the issue that hits home for many in the national security industry — the issue of veteran unemployment,” says Testoni. “Not being able to find meaningful post-service work can significantly hinder veterans’ transition and recovery.” Since the inception of NS2 Serves, the program has trained more than 100 veterans.
