Innovative Use of Technology: CSC and Monster Government Solutions (Tie) -

CSC, for its “DECKSTER” live dashboard displays: Deckster by CSC is a lightweight web-based visualization framework that displays dynamic infographics to meet customers’ most complex visualization needs. Users interact with cards that display complex data in a quick, easily digestible format such as charts, graphs, maps, and tables. Cards are tiled in the user’s screen in a dashboard layout, and can be sequenced or organized depending on user preference or the user’s role. Deckster’s cards, which dynamically refresh to show live data, can interact with each other in an unlimited number of ways including expanding other cards, highlighting data in other cards, or even scrolling to a specific location in another card.

Monster Government Solutions, for its Military Skills translator: Monster’s Military.com Military Skills Translator leverages Military.com’s deep institutional knowledge of military and veteran affairs and Monster’s award-winning talent recruitment and management software to provide veterans with an in-depth, comprehensive, multifaceted picture of how their service skills can be applied in the corporate world. Veterans can input information about their military service and job titles, education, as well as secondary, tertiary and civilian skills. The Monster tool then automatically presents a list of current job openings that match the veterans’ skills on the very same page. The tool has a proven record of enabling more transitioning veteran service members to be matched with careers that align with their unique skills sets.
