In Cindy’s Words…
I’m passionate about my work in technology and innovation because there is nothing more exciting or rewarding than unleashing the power of creativity and out-of-the-box thinking to solve hard problems; and I get to collaborate with the best and the brightest thinkers and trailblazers in the field of data management and analytics.
I chose Octo because I wanted to be immersed in a community of like-minded problem solvers and have the opportunity to transform good ideas into real solutions for our clients. The innovative work we have underway will lead the next generation of data management solutions. These products will help Federal Government organizations overcome their decades-long struggles to realize their vision of being truly data driven.
