The public sector market for information technology is huge. In FY 2017 the federal government will spend on IT Products and Services $89 billion to support the requirements of DOD  and  Civilian agencies.  Add the security agencies and the state market and this total more than doubles. However, the sheer size, diversity, complex procurement regulations and the multiple organizations that influence the acquisition process makes it one of the most difficult markets

To be successful, you need ready-access to a wide range of information and data to make timely and proper decisions. Marketing and business developĀ­ment personnel have many challenges in conducting this research internally. First they must obtain the data from multiple and diverse sources, and then the data must be analyzed and validated to support their decision process.
