Thank you for your interest in attending the Digital Innovation Day @ Octo: an Invite-Only event showcasing the latest UI/UX, Data, Cloud and Agile Development technologies and best practices. Due to rapidly evolving logistical issues related to the Pope’s visit to Washington DC and availability issues of key attendees due to uncertainty associated with the Government shut-down, we are re-scheduling the event to a future more suitable date. We will provide you with specific information on the new date and time.

In the meantime should you want to further some of the technologies around UI/UX, Data Analytics, or Cloud Management, we would be happy to schedule a briefing for your organization. Our technology partners including AWS, CliQr, Tobii, and Digital Reasoning are committed to helping our clients solve some of their digital services and innovation challenges.

Again, we appreciate your interest in attending the Digital Innovation Day and we hope to send you a new date and schedule for the event.

About Digital Innovation Day 2015

Digital Innovation Day is an invitation-only event open to Octo’s customers and partners to share and collaborate on new ways of developing innovative Digital Services. As part of this event, we would like to introduce you to Octo’s Digital Services team and demonstrate how we developed a mobile application in 4 days using Agile Development techniques.

This is a first-hand account of lessons learned, tools used, and best practices. You will also have an opportunity to hear about emerging industry trends and technologies in the UI/UX, Data, Cloud and Agile Engineering space. In addition to great content, we will also introduce the concept of a "Digital Genius Bar" where you can schedule an appointment with subject matter experts to help answer your questions on topics related to Digital Services.

Building great Digital Brands does not happen by accident! Come and learn how CHIEF (formerly known as Rock Creek) is helping build uniquely powerful and creative brands for Hilton, Yale, Department of Justice, FEMA, Newman's Own Foundation and YWCA, to name a few.

Digital Reasoning uses machine learning techniques to accumulate context and fill in the gaps to help make better decisions, detecting and preventing fraud, and automating manual processes while processing large amounts of data.

Enabling agile delivery of digital services requires a modern, secure and cost-efficient computing platform that offers a rich set of services to help develop and deploy working applications. Come and learn from AWS’s Cloud Architects on how you can use server-less architectures to reduce the cost and complexity of delivering digital services.

DevOps enables organizations to automate the deployment of applications in cloud platforms such as AWS. CliQr’s Cloud Management Platform provides a unique self-service and provisioning capability to create a standardized service catalog through templates ensuring consistency while enabling a secure applications operations environment through DevOps.
