A Look Back…and Forward


Goodbye 2018…and Welcome 2019!

This past year was an exceptional one for Artemis Consulting as we continued to innovate and grow, further deepening our expertise in our core capabilities.  We were honored to win several awards during this time, including the Inc. 5000 List for Fastest Growing Companies in America, Virginia’s Fantastic 50 List of the Fastest Growing Companies, and Entrepreneur Magazine’s 360 List of the Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America.  We were equally proud of our staff’s ability to juggle projects and deliverables during a very busy year!   One of the projects that received quite a bit of publicity was our crowdsourcing platform, which uses modern technology to harness the abilities of ordinary citizens to help transcribe historical documents from notable historical figures, such as Abraham Lincoln.  We also took the time to share our company’s capabilities at major conferences, such as the PyCon Conference in Cleveland, Ohio back in May 2018.  While the year feels like a blur, looking back on our achievements gives me a sense of pride in all that our company has done and continues to do.

As this new year marks our company’s 20th anniversary, it is making us step back to think more holistically about our success and decide how to more broadly leverage our core capabilities. We kicked-off the year with an All Hands Meeting where we looked back at the technology trends from when we started our company.  Who remembers the web browser, Netscape Navigator, and Napster introducing the way to share and download music before they were shut down?  Some of the development languages from back then, such as Java and PHP, continue to endure!  We enjoyed remembering these other technology trends from two decades ago.

Looking forward, we are excited to continue working hand-in-hand with our clients and lend our expertise to achieve their vision. This year, we have big plan to share our know-how, experiences, and story about Artemis Consulting.  We plan to publicly discuss more about the market trends that have been part of the IT landscape over the last few years, as well as newer ones that are transforming information technology, particularly in the application development arena.  Within the government, the President’s Management Agenda, originally envisioned in 2001 by President Bush, has evolved over the last 17 years and continues to place strong emphasis on digital transformation and its commitment to modernizing legacy technology.  The latest iteration of it was passed by Congress in the Integrated Digital Experience Act (IDEA) Act, which requires public-facing agency websites to have a “consistent look” and be compliant with the web standards established by the Technology Transformation Service of the GSA.  Additionally, cloud adoption will become increasingly important with the Cloud Smart initiative’s goal of encouraging federal agencies to continue moving to the cloud, while checking to make sure the new technology continues to fit with their mission.  We believe our organization is well-positioned in its expertise to meet these needs.  

Come back to our blog periodically to read what our Artemis team is sharing about these and a variety of other relevant technology-related topics.
