Partner for Success

GSA Teaming arrangements

Governments worldwide are moving away from monolithic implementations and multi-year projects involving huge outlays. The US Federal CIO, Vivek Kundra has highlighted numerous such failed programs as he pushes for the Cloud First Initiative.
In this environment, choosing the right technology partner for any Government project has become a critical requirement for every Government System Integrator. This is a huge opportunity for your business as the federal market for SOA projects has gone up by a staggering 17% CAGR, from $370 million in 2009 to a projected $660 million in 2014. Almost $20 billion has been set aside for Cloud Initiatives from the overall $80bn of IT funding for the US Federal Government.
