Our History

A Legacy of Excellence

For more than three decades, Pragmatics has provided clients with award-winning customer service and expert solutions to complex challenges. Since 1985, when Pragmatics CEO Dr. Long Nguyen left his teaching position at Georgetown University to establish the company, Pragmatics has maintained a sterling reputation as a trusted, capable and innovative solutions provider.

During our early years as an 8(a) company, Pragmatics earned an outstanding reputation for delivering excellent service to a diverse customer base, including several cabinet-level departments. At the time, we specialized in onsite technical support, including network administration, capacity planning and applications development. While enjoying success in those roles, Pragmatics did not wish to become stagnant.

Providing Innovative New Services

We sought to grow and improve the ways in which we could serve our clients, so in 2010, Pragmatics acquired Innovative Solutions International, Inc. (ISI), a privately owned engineering and consulting firm specializing in aviation-related satellite technologies. ISI’s expertise was based on planning, modernizing, and implementing integrated communications, navigation, surveillance, and air traffic management (CNS/ATM) systems for federal government, commercial, and international customers. This acquisition enhances Pragmatics’ program management and engineering services capabilities and provides value to our clients in the development of new technologies that take advantage of satellite-based capabilities to deliver next-generation communications, navigation, and surveillance. ISI is now part of the Pragmatics Federal Civilian Division and is known as the Pragmatics Transportation Group.

Pragmatics’ industry-leading experts currently deliver high-impact solutions to a portfolio of 25 major information technology contracts with a range of defense and civilian agencies. These include the Defense Information Systems Agency; the Departments of the Army, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Justice, State, and Treasury; the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation; the General Services Administration; and several intelligence agencies. Pragmatics is proud of its ability to support our clients in achieving success in their important missions, and we look forward to continuing to provide them with the highest level of service.

Commitment to Quality

Our dedication to innovation and rigorous quality standards have powered our growth. In 2012, the company had revenues of $187 million and looks forward to continued growth and profitability. Pragmatics is active in industry affiliations such as AFCEA and ACT-IAC and encourages employee participation in these organizations. Adapting to new industry trends remains a high priority, which gives Pragmatics confidence in our ability to consistently provide high-impact solutions to our clients’ complex challenges.

Serving our country and our communities has been a part of Pragmatics culture since our inception. During the more than 30 years since our establishment, we have made contributions to a variety of organizations and causes.
