    HOW CAN ARCHITECTURE CREATE RESULTS?

    IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS LIKE THESE BELOW, WE CAN HELP :

    • My users are clamoring for iPads or access to Facebook, how do I make decisions like this?

    • What kind of stuff do I put in the cloud, and how do it without breaking things?

    • Is this SOA thing real? How do I build things once and then actually reuse them?

    • I think someone is about to implement a new application that is very similar to one we have...how do I handle this?

    • Where is my industry going to be five years from now?

    • And how do I ensure that I’m on the right path?

    • How do I identify business processes that can be improved and made more efficient?

    • I need to do more (work) with less (resources)...where do I start?

    WHAT MAKES OUR APPROACH TO CLIENT ENGAGEMENTS, PROBLEM SOLVING, AND STRATEGY DIFFERENT AND BETTER?WE ADAPT.

    After years of working within and across a variety of consulting firms and engagements, we realized that rigid methodologies and shelf ware often hinder problem solving and rapid delivery. Rigid methodology also limits the creativity and perspectives that smart, experienced consultants can and should bring to clients.

    When we founded Octo, we gave consultants the flexibility to have the greatest impact possible by drawing not only upon a proven set of tools, but also on their own past experiences and individual expertise.

    Our approach frees consultants to deliver the results IT leaders in government and business need to improve performance and accomplish their missions. Ultimately, it translates into faster timelines, lower costs, intelligent solutions, measurable outcomes and happier people.

    RESULTS THAT MATTER

    EMPOWERED CONSULTANTS

    The most critical part of Octo's adaptive approach is empowering our consultants to make the right decisions for our clients. While we provide them with starting points, frameworks and tools, true success depends on them using their talents to find the solutions needed to deliver results.

    AGILE THINKING

    Results make us who we are. They drive us. And the quest for results demands that we examine our clients’ problems from every angle. We use proven frameworks and agile thinking to locate problems, exa...

  • Octo Consulting Group: About Us

    Community, Communication Design

    Octo Consulting Group, an award-winning provider of mission-critical technology solutions and management consulting services to the federal government.

    WE'RE NOT A COMPLACENT-BECAUSE-WE'VE-ALREADY-ARRIVED CONSULTING FIRM.

    You have so many choices in the consulting universe. Beyond size and expertise, how do you differentiate? How do you know if one firm is the right fit—or if you've found a true partner you can rely on time and again?

    At Octo, the difference is clear. It's in our DNA. We're a want-it-more, obsessed-with-client-success consulting firm. We're hungry for results and stop at nothing to deliver on every engagement.

    We know we're only as good as our references and referrals—that your success is our success. That's one reason why over 97 percent of our clients yield repeat business and why we've earned contracts over 25 government agencies.

    We founded Octo Consulting Group in 2006 as a fresh alternative to the traditional consulting choices. We all have backgrounds from big firms and big schools. Today, we’re all at Octo because we believe in creating the biggest impact.

    We deliver the results IT leaders in government and business need to improve performance and accomplish their missions. Through our approach to client engagements, Octo offers world-class analysis, relevant insights and intelligent solutions that consistently produce practical, measurable outcomes. In the end, isn’t that what matters most?
