The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) has been undergoing a massive transformation to improve how IT is being used to support the mission of the agency with an emphasis on implementing enterprise capabilities for both Intramural and Extramural research.
Octo supported the NIH with architecture, strategy, and innovation planning using our Agile Enterprise Architecture approach. This included conducting market research, developing analyses of alternatives, and designing conceptual architectures for topics that have challenged NIH for some time. This approach emphasized prototyping technologies and solutions to see how they address customer pain points, taking advantage of existing enterprise investments.
We established an “Innovation Center” concept that encouraged the use of new technologies without making significant investments and integrated architecture with Agile software development.
