Big Systems Experience for All Sizes of Organization

Captiva’s big systems experience helps your organization succeed

We help government agencies plan and implement information technology that benefit their consituents. From billion-dollar national security projects, to charting the course for Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Cloud Serivces, to defining the portfolio for a national case management system spanning 194 offices.

Whether your motivation is to reduce complexity, rationalize your portfolio, truly understand where your IT budget is spent, or meet the newest government IT management mandates like TBM, Captiva can help you achieve your goals. We match your business needs to information technology, eliminate fluff, redundancy, and pet projects, and provide management oversight for implementation of your plans.

Alignment of IT to Business

Captiva’s approach to aligning IT to Business uses Technology Business Management (TBM) as its foundation. We alignment differently by getting an objective understanding of your business, your goals, your definition of success, and your current business processes and system to develop an IT Success Map™. The IT Success Map™ is the tool that identifies redundant systems, significant gaps, and inefficiencies, and charts a course to make information technology accelerate your operations. Find out more about TBM.

Product Evaluation, Assessment, and Selection

With knowledge of your business priorities, Captiva can help you identify the right IT solution to accelerate your operations. Our experience with IT tools in a wide variety of operational areas allows us to rapidly and efficiently match the correct solutions to your needs. Our comprehensive evaluation approach allows us to rapidly support industries or areas where we have less experience. All information is available to you, transparently and openly, so that you can see the alignment of the solutions to your business needs.

Prototyping and Concept Creation

When you need to see a solution in action, but a stock demo is just not enough, we can rapidly develop prototypes that give you insights into how IT solutions can accelerate your operations. Our method iteratively develops prototypes, with frequent reviews, to help organizations make the case – or not – for implementing IT solutions. Our skills are in workflow, case management, IoT sensors and integration, and data analytics.

Budget Development

The key CIO job is to implement IT at the right time, for the right cost, and to solve the right problems to optimize an organization’s operations. Our CIO support services include budget development, from project-level budgets to an organization’s multi-year plan. From billion-dollar Government projects using formal Captiva Planning processes to small businesses looking for rapid cost estimates, our budgeting experts have the right mix of technical and financial experience to help you develop accurate budget plans and cost estimates.

Program/Project Management and Oversight

Whether you need extra hands for surge projects, or long-term independent oversight, Captiva’s team of Program and Project Management consultants can help you deliver IT projects on time and within budget. We have experience in Agile, SAFe, traditional waterfall, and several other methodologies, and have helped government organizations set up and operate processes and infrastructure supporting their development operations.
