Disruption and Opportunity Emerging From Declining Federal IT Market, According to Deltek


(PRWEB) July 16, 2014

According to a new report from Deltek, federal IT spending will decline from $ 102 billion in FY 2014 to $ 94 billion in FY 2019 as agencies continue to streamline operations and improve the efficiency of IT programs. IT reform initiatives continue to compel agencies to maximize budgets and strengthen IT performance, which results in both reductions and investments.

Delteks new GovWin IQ report Federal IT Market, 2014-2019, provides analysis of contractor-addressable budgets across the federal Hardware, Software, IT Services, and Communications and Network Services markets helping contractors identify areas of budget growth and contraction so they can better plan and execute their business development strategies. Delteks forecast includes IT spending not reported through the Office and Management and Budget (OMB), such as the judicial and legislative branches, the intelligence community, federal organizations that are not subject to federal IT budget reporting requirements, and IT embedded in large defense systems.

IT policies related to data center optimization, strategic sourcing, shared services and cloud computing are driving some cost savings. Agencies are reprioritizing and rescoping IT programs in an effort to maximize existing budgets and set the stage for lower spending in the future. This transition to a leaner federal government and the ability to sustain it requires technologies that facilitate the consolidation, integration and standardization necessary to develop uniform IT platforms known as Common Operating Environments.

The proliferation of Common Operating Environments in many agencies is the basis of their approach to delivering enterprise IT, said Deltek Analyst Alex Rossino. Getting there requires a variety of investments and activities, from deploying standardized hardware and applications to reengineering IT networks.

This enterprise-centric perspective will result in budget declines over the long run. In order to reach this goal within existing budget boundaries, agencies will eliminate redundant investments, focus on the must-haves, favor lower cost alternatives, and utilize strategic sourcing contracts.

In the course of this transformation, evolving IT policies will have an impact on all IT market segments. Strategic sourcing and data center consolidation and optimization efforts will put downward pressure on the IT Hardware and Software markets. The IT Services segment is similarly impacted by the administrations focus on reducing service contracting, which represents the largest category of federal contracting. While not exempt from cuts, the Communications and Network Services market is sustained by growing bandwidth and mobility requirements.

Agencies will also continue to rally budget dollars around technology solutions that support mission priorities, such as cybersecurity and data analytics. Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) and Health IT will be critical for the Department of Defense in particular.

With or without sequestration in 2016, budget modesty has become the norm as agencies plan for the future. After experiencing sequestration in 2013, agency leaders want more control of where cuts happen, said John Slye, Deltek Analyst. This means redefining priorities and acquisition strategies to fit within new budget realities.

Contractors must continue to adjust to this reality by ensuring that they have the strategies and tactics in place to pursue growth opportunities and protect market share.

Petach Tikva, Israel (PRWEB) August 27, 2012

CTERA Networks, the leader in cloud storage enablement, today announced it has been selected by UBM Channel and CRN as a 2012 Emerging Technology Vendor.

The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2006 or later, have revenue under $ 1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy.

Among these Emerging Vendors are companies that have already established themselves in their market segment and others that are already making an impact despite a recent launch. Each organization on the list represents a new partnership and go-to-market opportunity for solution providers looking to identify new vendor partners.

As the demand for cloud storage and collaboration continues to explode from organizations of all sizes, CTERA has emerged as a leader in the market. Its hybrid solution, which is ideal for SMBs and enterprise branch and remote offices (ROBO), combines secure cloud storage services with on-premise storage appliances, managed end-point agents and a mobile app for a seamless user experience. CTERA enables managed service providers and enterprises to deliver an all-in-one suite of cloud storage services including backup, file sharing, cloud on-ramping and mobile collaboration.

The companys channel-friendly architectures empowers resellers to provide their own branded cloud storage services with no need to invest in datacenter infrastructure, easing their transition into cloud services.

Emerging doesn’t mean what it used to, said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. And this collection of up-and-comers and new-to-the-game vendors is on an upward trajectory that a host of young companies that preceded them could barely imagine. With new innovations like cloud computing and virtualization speeding up the pace of innovation, and technology mainstays like storage and networking branching off into new directions, this list encapsulates a tectonic technology shift where the recently founded are starting to rule the roost and become household names much more quickly than in the past. We congratulate each vendor on the list and congratulate them for placing an emphasis on innovation and ease of use, features that are the hallmark of any successful channel offering.

Final selection to the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information. To view a sample of the list and read the editorial accompaniment visit http://www.CRN.com.

Techie.com Kicks Off Trade Show Series for Emerging Tech with ESCape to the Midwest

South Bend, IN (PRWEB) June 11, 2013

Techie.com, an online magazine and destination for emerging technology and disruptive trends, announced today the first of a series of exhibitions designed to highlight some of the most exciting high-tech entrepreneurial ventures coming from throughout the Midwest.

The first-of-its-kind emerging technology trade show and conference recognizes that much of the technology that will be shaping the world in the next decade will be coming from unexpected places outside the mainstream tech centers. The trend was first highlighted in techie.com’s “Ten most unexpected tech hubs” list published in April 2013.

The next wave of innovation is coming from the Midwest,” said techie.com editor-in-chief Dan Blacharski. The Internet and more recently cloud based computing has had a democratizing effect on the startup community, barriers to entry have been lowered, and innovators from cities like South Bend, Detroit, Chattanooga, and Des Moines are taking the baton from Silicon Valley in bringing about what we’ve termed the ‘dot cloud boom.’ We are at the beginning of a major techno-social revolution, which is changing how businesses operate, how people play, and even changing the very definition of what a company and a job really is. The companies, speakers, and special events at ESCape to the Midwest are the movers and shakers that are already making this shift happen.

The event, which will be held in South Bend on Saturday, October 26, will feature up to 100 exhibitors; a meet-a-thon for getting face-to-face time with VCs, business accelerators, and key enablers; a pitch-off to let promising tech startups from the area present their ideas to the crowd for immediate feedback; and an Idea to Revenue presentation that culminates SaaS Makers PaaS Challenge competition. PaaS Challenge is designed to encourage users to take advantage of SaaS Makers powerful platform-as-a-service, which gives entrepreneurs all the tools they need to create, deploy, and sell their as-a-service apps.

Also featured at the event is the World Accelerator/Techie.com One Word Domain competition. World Accelerator, a business incubator with a unique value, offers its portfolio companies seed funding, mentorship, and connections, as well as access to one of their highly brandable, one-word domains, including alumni.com, diploma.com, or fashionstore.com.
