Our Mission

Vidya, LLC builds on premise, cloud, and hybrid solutions for commercial businesses and government agencies according to their strategic objectives. Our work proves there is no need to choose between continuous delivery and high quality.

Federal SBA 8(a), Commonwealth of Virginia SWaM, and multiple commercial certifications as a minority-owned business are testament to our ability not only to deliver lean, innovative solutions for our clients but also to do so the right way using techniques like agile development, DevSecOps, and automated testing not only for functionality but also for security, accessibility, and performance.

Our Differentiators

These are some of the values that distinguish Vidya, LLC from others in the space:

  • Dedication to communication, which is the basis for teamwork, transparency, accountability, and humility as we don't know everything
  • Commitment to listen to understand your unique business problems and solve them as simply as possible
  • Proven track record of modernizing cloud-scale software by integrating a wide breadth of newer, even leading edge technologies with legacy systems that still generate value for your organization
  • Expertise across disparate disciplines like modern UI, APIs, data engineering and analytics, and cybersecurity
  • Understanding the profound influence non-technical disciplines like recruiting and contracting have on the success of technology initiatives
  • Staff with PMP and agile certifications
  • Published content, public speaking, and cited for expertise in multiple government reports like this one
  • Course instruction because you don’t really know something unless you can teach it

Our Services

  • Custom application development for your organization
  • Consulting with your team on architecture and development on large software projects, assessing the current state of your software, optimizing your recruiting and contracting practices to motivate the right values, agile mentorship, technical communications

Our Capability Statement

We are a passionate advocate for diversity in technology. Prejudice against anyone on the basis of gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, orientation, ability, or even academic background not only limits our individual growth but also limits the creative energy necessary to develop the best software.

Vidya was a strategic partner and collaborator during the proposal phase and a sought-after facilitator during program delivery. They explained the most complicated aspects of agile development, software engineering, and DevOps with clarity and humor that enabled our non-technical program participants (and me!) to gain the understanding they needed to more effectively engage with digital service practitioners. I highly recommend them.

Our name

Vidya comes from the Sanskrit for “right knowledge” or “clarity.” We want to embody the learning spirit that is the essence of the word. In software engineering, you learn every day–not only about all the technologies out there and the new ones emerging every day but also about people and what they want to accomplish. We want to work with you to build knowledge and learn from each other.

The Vidya swan

Vidya is associated with the Hindu deity Saraswati because she is the Goddess of Learning. In ancient Indian art and literature, she is often depicted wearing a spotless white sari and riding a white swan.

We just hope you like the swan more than Billy Madison.
