Do shrinking budgets, increased competition, and IT governance policies seeking to cut infrastructure costs to fund new and improved mission systems cause you to have a bleak outlook for IT business opportunities in FY13?
Industry leader and immixGroup co-founderSteve Charles hopes to change your thinking as he discusses how companies can spot the opportunities driving the federal IT market forward.
In a recent article, Mr. Charles reminds us "The Empire State Building was conceived, built, and occupied during the depths of the Great Depression."
During this presentation of the Washington Breakfast Club™, Steve Charles will emphasize the need for companies to stay in synch with the two main drivers of technology purchases: products that support mission delivery, and those that support the next generation of infrastructure from the data center out to users’ devices.
He will also elaborate on his picks of the most important trends to consider when planning your sales strategy:
- Cloud first
- Shared services
- Data center consolidation
- Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act
- Digital Strategy, mobility and security
