The provenance of Aretec were the vistas of the Sierra Nevada mountains, overlooking Lake Tahoe. Getting to this place requires a steep climb, up twisting roads, around large granite formations and through shadowed forests. The journey is rewarded when the trees thin out, the sky opens up, and before you is the sparkling clarity of the most beautiful mountain lake you will ever see.
Beginning in 2010, Anthony Rivera and Roby Luna made this trip many times. Having been brought together to work on a contract in the Reno/Tahoe area, their mutual work was in developing IT modernization solutions for a Department of Defense (DoD) customer who had significant challenges with reporting mandates for a number of different logistical initiatives. Their trips to Lake Tahoe inspired deep thought regarding the development of solutions that could help federal agencies make informed decisions based on dormant data. The lack of solutions that enabled evidence-based decision making and advanced data visualization presented a unique opportunity to positively impact these agencies. This void served as the catalyst for the creation of Aretec.
Since 2013, Aretec has served the United States government (Securities Exchange Commission [SEC], Defense Logistics Agency [DLA], Army National Guard [ARNG], Executive Office of the President [EOP]) as a federal contractor. The company holds a niche market position through the development of data science platforms that streamline workflows from ingestion to deployment. Using open source tools, open standards, and market specialists, we have demonstrated the ability to leverage and integrate all of your data sources to extract the most valuable insights. This combination of domain knowledge and data science expertise has enabled Aretec to develop production solutions that have revolutionized the value of data for our existing customers.
At our core, we believe that data will power every industry, community, and country. Our proven ability to provide organizations with the right information, at the right time, for intelligent decision making fuels our company. Data science alone is not a holy grail for decision making. Data science combined with Aretec’s proven technical expertise is.
