Dominion Consulting attended SAP TechEd 2017 in sunny Las Vegas. SAP transported us from present day Vegas to the final frontier of the digital revolution. The conference kicked off with a keynote from Björn Goerke, SAP’s Chief Technology Officer. As a bonus, he came dressed as the legendary Captain Kirk on the mythical starship Enterprise! Goerke walked us through SAP’s vision of the digital transformation facing many present day organizations in their attempt to go digital (boldly) and blur the lines between their physical and virtual world.
SAP indulged the crowd with some space age demos of their new Leonardo platform to use drones, machine learning, spatial analytics, and computer vision to help Dole to automate farming of hundreds of acres of palm trees. Who doesn’t love drones and artificial intelligence? And what better way to indulge a room full of developers than to dress up as Captain Kirk, wear Vulcan ears, and present from the bridge of the Enterprise? (more…)
Dominion Consulting has been awarded a prime position on the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Shared Services Line of Business (SSLoBS) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA). An estimated $500 million multi-award BPA, this win is a testament to our team’s 20+ years of continuous delivery and excellence supporting USDA’s mission.
The objective of the SSLoBS BPA is to drive the OCFO’s (Office of the Chief Financial Officer) mission, while providing USDA’s shared service offerings to customers government-wide. The scope of this BPA includes services for Financial Management, Human Resources, Information Technology Services Division, External Systems Development, and Personnel & Pay. These service offerings are designed to eliminate time-consuming, transactional functions and allow agencies to focus on their core mission.
As Dominion Consulting continues to grow, an important consideration is, “Where will our marketing dollars go?” We have always believed it is important to sponsor and participate in events and member organizations that reflect our capabilities. Our consultants want to interact with and learn from their industry colleagues. Most importantly, it is also a great tool for our employees to earn CPEs to keep their certifications current.
Dominion could not be more proud of our relationship with the Association of Government Accountants (AGA). Three years ago Dominion joined the Corporate Partner Advisory Group (CPAG), increasing our involvement with the AGA. We have already had a busy year working with the AGA.
It is hard to believe that Dominion Consulting is approaching its 14th year as an organization. It all started for some of us in 2003, when two Enterprise Resource Planning experts decided to build a company based on SAP, and its rapid growth in the Federal Government. Fast forward to 2013, a core capability was our SAP expertise and rapid growth into the Momentum Financials arena. Now, as 2017 begins, our Enterprise Applications solution area is at a crossroads. We are excited about the new direction it is taking us.
As part of our recent rebranding effort, we agreed our website had become stale. It needed a new, fresh look focusing on our future, exactly like our rebrand. We wanted to take a chance to look at things from a new perspective and create a site that would evolve with our company as we grow.
A key question we asked ourselves was “How do we highlight our capabilities, and most importantly what our people bring to our clients?”. Like many emerging large consulting firms, we perform a lot of different activities to meet the needs of our clients, reflecting the skills of our people. When we looked at what makes Dominion successful, it isn’t just our approach to delivering. Our people bring solution area expertise to make each project a success.
