Parsons is one of the largest 100% employee-owned management, engineering, and construction companies in the United States. Parsons wanted to enable its global workforce to collaborate more effectively. Dealing with projects valued in the hundreds of millions to billions of dollars, their teams do whatever it takes to deliver results on-time and on-budget. Given that their workforce is often in greenfield locations with no infrastructure, and that its specialists can be located anywhere in the world, collaboration was a major issue. Parsons Information Systems organization is outsourced to Perot Systems and the network personnel dedicated to Parsons suggested that Parsons use Riverbed Steelhead products in their distributed locations. After extensive testing in production environments, the solution was adopted across the Parsons organization.
