Emerging Technology Services

As businesses transform their IT systems, they are increasingly finding that the ideal digital experience must also be a more human experience. The agencies that embark on IT modernization programs must put the customer above all other considerations. As such, Technology innovation is key to a transformation strategy. We help you explore emerging and proven technologies to enable transformation, develop approaches, and provide evaluation and implementation support in these critical areas.

 

Centennial specializes in emerging technologies that position agencies and corporations as leaders in their respective fields by providing them with the tools and means to leapfrog their competition. As many organizations try to catch up with the latest innovations, we believe it is vital to anticipate and lay out the groundwork for the adoption to provide the best solution with the best value. By combining building blocks for a specific use case, we design custom solutions and, as patterns emerge through subsequent use cases, develop reusable solutions, creating an environment of ongoing innovation and improvement.

 

Our Emerging Technologies Lab specializes in the four leading-edge technologies that we believe will have the most significant impact over the next decade on your business and mission: Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Advanced Analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Our AI experts augment RPA to replicate human actions and enable better decisions using machine learning algorithms. Our expert data analysts evaluate and consider emerging technologies such as predictive, prescriptive, and augmented solutions to realize benefits from data insights. As we have done for so many of our commercial and federal clients, we can help you achieve a fast ROI by implementing bots for your key business processes. This enables your talented staff free from many elementary functions, thereby focusing more time on critical analysis and decision-making.

cloud

Cloud Support Services

With continuous pressure to modernize and accelerate innovation, organizations face the challenge of purposeful transformation. Lowered costs, enhanced flexibility, and the ability to create new revenue streams make cloud a technology of choice for high performance. But the cloud can do more. Cloud can connect customers and citizens anytime, anywhere, eliminate organizational boundaries, spur new products and services, broaden global footprint at a lowered cost, and enhance insight through advanced analytics. Cloud is now a true driver to business change, bringing together a range of public and private services to deliver agility, scalability, simplicity, and speed to market. We provide cloud support services that use the best of today’s available technologies and methods.

 

At Centennial, we engage with customers to holistically examine their business needs. Our Cloud services are then tailored to meet these requirements and deliver the key benefits of business agility, scalability, and flexibility in a robust and secure environment. Switching from an un-virtualized environment to a cloud can provide substantial cost savings. With greater automation and consolidation, we enable organizations to extract more significant savings from their IT footprint.

 

Centennial helps its clients navigate the challenges and opportunities available to improve business processes and create dynamic, collaborative work environments. We offer end-to-end services from consulting and implementation to ongoing support activities, along with the tools and partner relationships to implement, manage, and monitor any cloud-based process.

project-management

Project Management Office (PMO) Services

A strong, centralized Program Management Office (PMO) with efficient project leadership is key to any successful organization. Many large, complex organizations struggle in forming a strategic vison to implement and maintain a streamlined PMO. In today’s rapidly evolving technology landscape, organizations must adapt quickly to new regulations, competitors, and consumer expectations. Failure to do so may result in missing out on valuable opportunities, wasting significant resources, and mediocre business outcomes that fail to meet objectives. Some specific organizational challenges may include lack of oversight, misguided prioritization, and improper allocation of resources.

 

Centennial’s certified project management professionals and program experts take a holistic approach to solving organizations’ most challenging PMO problems. Centennial works closely with clients to develop customized solutions that address their unique business needs. Our solutions are based on four key tenets: independent, objective assessments; smart, strategic program management; data-driven decision making; and dynamic program involvement that aligns internal and external stakeholders. These strategies have proven effective across our diverse portfolio of programs involving technology evaluations, systems management, legacy system migration, application development, procurement support, and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Exhibit 300 business case management.

 

Centennial ensures that its clients are well positioned to succeed with a centralized PMO and overarching strategic vision. A properly implemented PMO creates a seamless link between strategy definition and program execution to ensure alignment. Strategically configured dashboards provide data that support strong decision making to achieve project objectives on time and within budget. The decision-making process becomes objective and data-driven, which mitigates wasted resources. Centennial’s PMO services ensure organizational longevity with increased engagement, superior work quality, and improved outcomes for the organization and its stakeholders.
