Chief Information Officer (CIO) Support
Many of Watershed’s clients have leveraged our expertise in Program and Project Management to assist with the establishment and/or staffing of their Project Management Office (PMO). Centralizing the management of all programs and projects under one domain can sometimes be an overwhelming endeavor. Watershed’s team has the experience and expertise to help organizations transition to a PMO structure or to improve an existing one. We understand that the foundation of any successful PMO is an effective and practical project management methodology, the implementation of best practices, and cross communication at all levels. We excel in these areas and can help you meet the strategic and operational needs of your organization.Read more
In today's ever-changing IT landscape, organizations need to ensure that their data is secure, that any personally identifiable information (PII) is controlled, and that access to systems is provided in accordance with their security plans.
Digital records include hard drives, SSDs, portable storage devices, and other such devices that store data. The integrity of digital records is of utmost importance, especially in a healthcare IT network. Watershed provides the expertise and talent to ensure that data is maintained, controlled, monitored and disposed of in accordance with NIST standards.
With digital transformation on the mind of nearly every executive today, organizations now understand that their ability to be successful relies upon their ability to creatively apply and extend IT in ways that most efficiently use resources to enhance customer experience and realize cost efficiencies.
Outsourcing provides a strategic and transformative framework for managing IT. Take cloud migration, a complex process that nearly every Agency faces. Executives understand that the “lift-and-shift” practices of early adopters didn’t take full advantage of the value the cloud has to offer. Migration encompasses evaluating core competencies to determine which applications are best managed internally and which can be shifted to cloud infrastructure or licensed as a service.
By strategically outsourcing parts of the process, government can tap into the experience of partners that have facilitated hundreds of migrations for other customers. Outsourcing provides agency leadership a decision point driven by the growing consensus that agencies should focus on doing what they do best, and outsource the rest.
The rapid shift to remote work, currently keeping IT teams busy, has cast a spotlight on outsourcing as a key piece of any response to an external event. As the DoD adjusts infrastructure and software to connect workers, they’re reconsidering roles and functions. Should they put all their time and resources into connecting remote workers so those workers can perform routine tasks that could be outsourced? It may be time to reevaluate.

Digital Government and Cloud Services
In partnership with critical technology partners such as Amazon Web Services, Google for Government, and Microsoft Government Services, Watershed brings on-the-ground experience in delivering Digital Government and Cloud Services to the Federal government. Infrastructure modernization is at the top of most agencies’ “to-do” lists because legacy technology was not designed to handle the dynamic, real-time nature of today’s business infrastructure and the need for continuous transformation. The requirement for business agility and the nature of technology landscape have changed because of the explosion of data; infrastructure modernization is more important than ever. Watershed Security is uniquely suited to empower the Federal Government's modernization journey and implement a forward-leaning cloud migration strategy. We offer a team with modernization and cloud migration experience, along with a deep operational understanding of the unique requirements of Health IT, which is critical for successful migration efforts.
