Enterprise Application Services provide full life-cycle application services for creating, designing, and managing applications.  Enterprise Applications are those that address a specific set of processes or functionality, and a single instance of the application is simultaneously used by multiple NIH Institutes and Centers.  Enterprise Applications typically provide intricate functionality across NIH and are funded by a central source.  Examples of enterprise applications are the NIH Enterprise Ethics System (NEES), NIH Intramural Database (NIDB), the NIH Integrated Time and Attendance System (ITAS), and the Director's Document and Records Management System (DDRMS).

Customer Benefits

CIT works with business areas to define the most logical and efficient means to continually support users and the technical components of the new application.  We ensure that applications are in line with the mission of the agency, employ cost reducing by resource sharing, tie to security requirements, and reduce technical risks.

Customer Market

This service is available to all NIH customers.
