CACI Recognized as Industry Innovator at Government Innovation Awards
CACI was honored at the Government Innovation Awards, a celebration of government IT’s disruptors, innovators and emerging leaders, presented by FCW, GCN, Washington Technology and Defense Systems.
CACI’s Agile Solution Factory (ASF) was recognized as an Industry Innovator, an award that honors private sector companies who play a vital role in the government IT community, using ingenuity and creativity to deliver high-value solutions that address their customers’ critical challenges.
According to Washington Technology, “CACI developed its Agile Solution Factory as a way to speed the development of high-quality software that meets agency missions. More than 200 government customers have toured the Ashburn, Va., facility to learn about best practices related to agile transformation, optimization, scaling and holistic integration. The factory helped CACI win an $880 million task order to help the Army develop software for its personnel and force management systems. Customers are seeing improvements that include increased productivity, lower implementation costs, delivery of what CACI says is 99 percent defect-free software and a faster time to market.”
Also recognized at the awards program was CACI employee Taylor Chott, a data scientist in the company’s Business and Information Technology Solutions sector. Ms. Chott was named a 2019 Rising Star for her work on deep learning solutions for the intelligence community’s most challenging missions.
According to FCW, “Ms. Chott has shown a talent for not only understanding the nuanced techniques described in academic journal articles, but also seeing opportunities to apply those techniques to intelligence use cases and build proof-of-concept prototypes…Ms. Chott has also established her own expertise around the use of deep learning techniques to automate event classification, anomaly detection and the generation of confidence scores. When complications arose with dataset curation, she was able to explain the problems and potential solutions to both technical and nontechnical audiences and kept essential work moving forward.”
Congratulations to CACI’s ASF team and to Ms. Chott for their contributions to CACI and its customers’ critical missions!
