About Us

Revolutionizing the Decision Making Required for Great Achievement

We are a company on a mission. Every day our team of experts is enthused to develop software, help our customers, and educate the market on modernizing how agencies must prioritize, plan, and fund.

Our Mission

Transforming government planning and budgeting is more important than ever and Decision Lens is leading these modernization efforts.

With Decision Lens, the Department of Defense, intelligence community, federal civilian agencies and state and local governments more effectively plan to and make data-driven decisions which always align resources to their mission. And with trillions of dollars spent each year, every effort towards better, faster decisions have a consequential impact.

Public sector employees have a monumental task on their shoulders. They must plan for the future, prioritize for the medium-term, and spend to meet the needs of today. Decision Lens is developed to achieve these goals by connecting time horizons, aligning strategy to mission, and providing enterprise transparency.

Each day we wake up to develop software, support implementations, and inform people about the benefits of using Decision Lens. We believe better government planning and budgeting will result in no less than America’s improved economic standing in the world, its ability to prevent potential conflict, and the increased happiness of our citizens.

Decision Lens Mission

Our Story


In 2002, Decision Lens founders, John and Dan Saaty, launched their father, Dr. Thomas Saaty’s world-renowned decision framework as powerful software that would revolutionize the way the public sector prioritizes, plans, and funds.

In the intervening 20 years the company has become adept at developing software specifically designed for the public sector. From episodic prioritization done in board rooms to integrated, continuous planning done everywhere our software is purpose built for one goal: meeting your mission. At its core, Decision Lens foundation in decision science helps organizations make better, faster data-driven decisions.

Our focus on the public sector offers myriad benefits to our customers. Decision Lens can be acquired across a variety of contracting vehicles and through several partners. We have invested in a robust hosting ecosystem to support a range of security requirements. Our software meets the strict FedRAMP security requirements.

Above all, Decision Lens is designed for a modern government. Customers achieve rapid time to value with quick implementations, ready-made training options, and a user interface which is easy to adopt.

The result of these efforts is recognition as an industry leader. The company has received an Air Force Technology Innovation Award, was recognized as the corporate member of the year by the American Society of Military Comptrollers, and has been featured on Federal News Network.

The public sector has taken note as well. Today, Decision Lens is used to prioritize and allocate billions of dollars across the Navy, Army, Air Force, federal civilian agencies, the intelligence community, and state and local government.

These agencies achieve a sustained operational advantage through superior long-term planning, continuous medium-term prioritization, and exceptional short-term funding execution.
