Discover how we can help you advance your mission.

Data Analytics

Transform data into results and actions

Data Analytics takes large quantities of raw, unstructured data from disparate datasets, multiple sources, and systems to draw insights through the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) resulting in predictive modeling, forecasting, and prescriptive decision-making.

Examples: Used primarily for external clients to pull together a wide range of unstructured or non-uniform data (e.g., large public health data sets, logistics, census information, etc.) for modeling exercises, to find patterns and correlations and transform the data into results or actions.

What we offer

  • Data engineering - architecture, modeling and integration (ETL)
  • Predictive analytics (AI, ML) - prescriptive decision-making support
  • Descriptive analytics (Perf. Mgt., self-service ad hoc reports & viz, dashboards)

Business Intelligence & Enterprise Data Warehouse

Collaborate with leading professionals for business operations and success

Cadmus' Business Intelligence (BI) practice works with our clients to architect and capture business logic, build a corresponding Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) and modern visualization to enable actionable intelligence of historical, current, and forecasted views of business operations.

Cadmus has certified data modelers, data visualization specialists, cloud orchestrators and business analysts with experience in developing comprehensive Business Intelligence systems for organizations, resulting in the following outcomes:

Technology Modernization

Find solutions to build better systems and applications

Cadmus' Technology Modernization practice assists clients to managing the risks associated with "Technical debt". Organizations that continue to rely on aging legacy systems spend 60-80% of their IT budgets on maintaining these systems.

Cadmus technology professionals recognize this problem and work with our clients to assess, migrate legacy applications to modern platforms and create continuous tech refresh programs to mitigate risks that come from technical debt. Often overlooked, technical debt can cripple operations, add to increased security risk and require lumpy capital outlays.

We support our clients by leveraging the following competencies:

  • Enable business growth and strategy
  • Free up IT professionals to focus on the bigger picture
  • Enable integration of people, process, and tools to ensure business delivery
  • Leverage scalable cloud resources

Our work is based on the Scaled Agile Framework for Enterprises (SAFe) to enable application development to enable business agility.

We support our clients by leveraging the following competencies:

  • Agile management of a continuous development pipeline (requirements)
  • Enterprise solution delivery
  • Agile product delivery
  • Automated infrastructure
  • Continuous testing
  • Learning enablement

Cloud Services

Adapt strategically to assess, plan, and design your goals while ensuring successful adoption

Cadmus' Cloud practice enables our clients to assess, plan and architect hybrid cloud environments to meet expanding business goals to compete in today's economy. We assist our clients in achieving efficiency, scalability and differentiation goals and outcomes by providing the expertise to assess, plan, and design cloud environments to meet mission objectives.

Our certified professionals orchestrate the delivery of on-demand cloud-based services to enable delivery transaction systems, high-end analytics, and business intelligence at an optimal cost. We have deep experience in the migration of privately held data centers and business workloads to a variety of cloud-based service providers. Cadmus is certified to host FedRAMP moderate data on behalf of the USG.

We also recognize that the ultimate success of cloud implementation depends on leaders ensuring that their people understand its benefits and are skilled, motivated, and empowered to operate in the new cloud environment.

DevOps Culture Building

DevOps is a culture change, not just a technology change

At its core, DevOps is an organizational philosophy that promotes collaboration on a continuous basis between the business function, the development (Dev) teams, and IT operations (Ops). Done well, a DevOps culture breaks down silos between these organizations and allows them to deliver high-quality solutions faster. People must be supported and encouraged as they move away from familiar and ingrained (and sometimes siloed) ways of doing things in order to deliver on the promise of DevOps. And effectively engaging a variety of stakeholders throughout the process is essential.

Cadmus understands the theory and practice around DevOps and the technology used to support it. We are experienced in the organizational components that are necessary to build a DevOps culture, from executive buy-in and communication, to skills training to metric development. We help IT leaders work within their organizations to overcome institutional resistance, manage coordination with other teams, and navigate shifting governance structures.

What we offer

  • Change readiness assessment
  • Agile communications
  • Targeted trainings, workshops
  • Rapid process improvement
  • Performance measurement
  • Workforce skill gap analysis

Delivering Customer Experience

Creating the ideal customer experience is a marathon, not a sprint

Delivering exceptional CX requires passion, a customer-centric mindset, and deliberate planning and execution. Every experience, every touchpoint requires careful planning and execution to delight customers.

Companies such as Amazon, Apple and other innovators outpace their competitors because they relentlessly keep CX top-of-mind. They leverage best-in-class CX methodologies, personalization technology, AI and other tools that are changing customer expectations about how their experiences should feel. These companies understand that these investments will pay for themselves in reduced operating costs.

Federal agencies must keep pace by ensuring that their people, working in service of a compelling vision and a detailed CX roadmap, deliver the ideal experience time and time again. Together with your leadership team our experts will help define your CX vision, identify and engage with your customers, and design and facilitate journey mapping exercises using personas to pinpoint your most important customer interactions. We understand that designing successful CX campaigns isn’t about managing a checklist but producing a shift in thinking.

What we offer

  • CX assessments
  • Customer personas
  • Tailored communications
  • Removing barriers to service delivery
  • Continuous improvement, based on the voice of the customer
  • Tracking qualitative and quantitative metrics

Cybersecurity Mindset

Build a holistic cybersecurity mindset to secure your organization

Rapidly evolving in scale, sophistication, and capability, today’s digital threats involve deceptive social engineering tactics and user-centric attacks to steal data and compromise entire business and government systems.

The unfortunate reality is that people—not an absence of secure technology or policies—represent the greatest cybersecurity weakness. Employees at every level must be meaningfully engaged, equipped and prepared to develop, use, operate, and follow security policies. It is therefore imperative that leaders create shared responsibility and change behaviors in order to reduce security vulnerabilities and thwart attacks.

Cadmus works closely with cybersecurity experts to seamlessly integrate organizational change management and communications into cybersecurity planning. We use proven tools and methodologies to communicate policies and processes, build cybersecurity awareness, and design training plans so that the entire organization adopts a security mindset.

What we offer

  • Cyber program strategy, communications planning, and execution
  • Stakeholder needs assessments and engagement
  • Organizational alignment to cybersecurity strategy
  • Workforce skill analysis
  • Training needs assessments
  • Cybersecurity workshop design and facilitation

Artificial Intelligence Integration

Your people are the key to reaping the full benefits of artificial intelligence

Across the public and private sector, organizations are integrating artificial intelligence (AI) to meet the demand for better service, greater efficiency, and increased engagement, and they are doing it via multiple channels (chat, website, email, phone, etc.). As organizations embrace AI to both automate complex tasks and make data-driven decisions, the success of these initiatives depends on how well they prepare their people to work alongside these promising technologies—it requires a shift in thinking among leaders and employees alike. This change impacts how they view their work, how they execute tasks, and how they are prepared to excel in the workplace of the future.

We work closely with clients up front to plan the change management and communications needed to bring leadership and employees alike along to get excited about the future. This approach reduces risk to your ongoing operations and helps align the workforce around your AI vision.

What we offer

  • Organizational change readiness
  • Agile communications
  • Workforce skill gap analysis and development plan
  • AI bias mitigation
  • AI risk frameworks

Organizational Change Management

Becoming adept at change is critical, yet few things are more challenging

Effective change management is about navigating a moment in time, and then creating the organizational will, resilience, and muscle memory that encourage individuals and teams to embrace and adopt new ideas.

When we approach a change management project, we look beyond the initial catalyst for change. We know that change has a lifecycle and does not happen in a vacuum. A problem with change today could be a problem with communication or team dynamics or training tomorrow.

Our proprietary methodology enables us to help our clients strategically navigate their change initiatives so they can thrive and build a team who is adept at navigating change.

  • How an organization manages change—the strategies, approaches, and messaging used —can take a team who is resistant to change, and help them to embrace new ideas and become high performers.
  • The key to designing the right change management approach is to gain a deep understanding of the motivations and concerns of the various stakeholder groups. Effective change management creates a shift in behaviors, greater employee engagement, and enthusiasm for new, shared initiatives.

What we offer:

  • Strategic planning
  • Organizational assessment
  • Culture change
  • Organizational design
  • Change readiness
  • Change management
  • Employee engagement

Stakeholder Engagement and Communications

Inspire action with effective communication

An organization’s connection with its stakeholders is not a given; it’s earned. Whether we’re building community around a shared cause or facilitating engaging experiences online, understanding stakeholders’ motivations and concerns helps clients create intentional connections and harness the power of fully engaged stakeholders.

We pair winning outreach and relationship building strategies with proprietary approaches and actionable programming designed to engage and motivate your stakeholders and make an impact. Our communications expertise is backed by deep insight into our clients’ markets, creativity and best practice messaging and delivery, and a commitment to measuring effectiveness to ensure strategy leads to results.

What we offer

  • Stakeholder analysis
  • Strategic marketing and communications strategy
  • Message development
  • Communications execution
  • Event design and management

Workforce Transformation

Skilled people, aligned with an inspiring vision, will create lasting, positive change

Workforce Transformation. It sounds like a huge endeavor. But at its core, it’s about assessing and developing the talent within your organization and ensuring the right people with the right skills are in the right positions to deliver on your mission. It involves engaging your talented staff and creating opportunities for them to envision and execute solutions to your organization’s most complex challenges.

We help organizations evolve—for the better. Without question, doing it is hard; and it takes more than the right tools, or expertise, or processes. It requires thinking differently about your challenges and how to approach them.

At Cadmus, we go deeper to diagnose the root issue, identify gaps, and develop a tailored program that will deliver the results you are looking for. We work creatively to align people, actions, and results — driving both buy-in and adoption— and building on decades of experience in successful workforce transformation initiatives.

What we offer

  • Workforce planning and development
  • Diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA)
  • Employee experience
  • Organizational development
  • Human capital IT solutions

Enterprise Optimization

Enterprise optimization is what we do and the outcome we deliver

No matter their size or mission, organizations are more effective and efficient when their strategies and goals—and the processes they rely on to achieve them—are well calibrated and well communicated. Enterprise optimization, therefore, is both a Cadmus offering and an outcome. It’s an integrated suite of services, tailored for an organization’s unique needs and designed to deliver results. It’s the way we help executives and their organizations define success, build the roadmap to get there, and meet the milestones along the way.

Too often, enterprise optimization is viewed as a rote process of metrics reporting and executive sign-off. Our methodology is effective because it encourages teams to surface issues and risks in a supported environment, engages people in collaborative discussion to resolve issues, and ensures accountability through the tracking of actions and a structured, consistent meeting cadence.

  • Well-run organizations have a visionary strategy, shared goals, and a set of clear priorities.
  • They put in place effective governance and performance measurement tools that drive collaboration and accountability—practices that become embedded in every aspect of their operations.
  • They choose partners that expertly navigate strategic and tactical activities; partners that develop a strategy and then roll up their sleeves to make it happen.

We work creatively to align people, actions, and results, driving both buy-in and adoption and building on decades of experience in successful business optimization initiatives.

What we offer

  • Strategic planning and roadmap development
  • IT/business performance management
  • Portfolio management
  • Program leadership and governance
  • Executive reporting

Inclusion and Accessibility

Building the society of tomorrow, today

Today’s leaders in government and industry are working together to build a future rooted in equity. Cadmus collaborates with our clients to create more diverse, equitable, inclusive, and accessible (DEIA) programs, services, and partnerships that support all people and the communities where they live.

We work across sectors to convene diverse stakeholders to co-create a shared vision. We then work together to dismantle barriers, prioritize equitable investments, provide technical assistance, and develop data-driven systems of accountability to measure success.

Additionally, we work within agencies and organizations to help build more diverse workforces, create cultures of belonging, and develop transparent systems that support career advancement. Through this approach, we help ensure that the products, services, and programs our clients create contribute to a more equitable future.

What we offer

  • Equity frameworks
  • DEIA culture building
  • Inclusive workforce development
  • Program and social equity
  • Partnership and supplier diversity
