FBI – Sentinel Program

by | Dec 5, 2016


  • The FBI Sentinel Program is a $450M IT modernization project led by Lockheed Martin to improve case management within FBI.
  • Sentinel is used by every person at the FBI.
  • The result is an integrated records management and discovery solution.

Problem / Situation

  • The FBI needed a robust Case Management, Document Management, E-Discovery, and Records Management solution
  • The client needed to determine an architecture and tool selection to enable them to meet functional, risk, and time expectations
  • The client needed technical resources and skills necessary to implement a complex technical solution


For the Sentinel project, Armedia:

  • Developed an Ext JS web-based case management solution leveraging Documentum for records management
  • Developed Rapid Proof of Concepts to prove out architecture
  • Was the largest Subcontractor to Lockheed with participation on all the IPT Teams
  • Provided key architectural and development talent to support implementation timelines and architectural objectives.
  • Identified critical developer productivity issues and user adoption issues and developed technology extensions to address and overcome


  • Requirements drove adoption of some new Documentum services, and extension or replacement of others
  • Significant oversight due to previous failed implementation attempt drove increased administrative and program requirements
