Cloud Performance Management Hot at Federal OSDBU Conference
To the untrained eye, doing business with the federal government can seem daunting, but SevOne has been active in this segment for a few years now. With hard work and perseverance, the rewards are tremendous. We certainly feel we are making a positive difference for our country in helping our government customers improve network performance and keep their increasingly complex applications functioning at peak performance levels.
Recently, SevOne joined some 3,000 attendees and exhibitors at the 2011 OSDBU Procurement Conference in Chantilly, VA. It's a national conference sponsored by the OSDBU Council, fostering business partnerships between the Federal Government, its Prime Contractors and businesses.
The OSDBU Council is an informal organization of Federal small business program officials that comes together monthly to exchange and discuss information on acquisition methods, issues and strategies, program initiatives and processes, and related outreach events designed to increase their utilization as prime and subcontractors to meet their annual requirements for services and goods.
Located in Northern Virginia near Washington Dulles International Airport, the Conference was in the heart of the Dulles Technology Corridor. Dubbed the "Netplex" by Fortune magazine, the Corridor contains the "vital electronic pathways that carry more than half of all traffic on the Internet." It's also home to more telecom and satellite companies than any other place on earth. It was a perfect location for SevOne as we met with a variety of show-goers, systems integrators, IT consultants, VARs, federal personnel and other exhibitors.
Clearly there was a heightened emphasis on Cloud First initiatives at this event. Our "Cloud-First Performance Management" banners drew the largest interest. We spent considerable time illustrating our cloud monitoring capabilities and our application-aware network performance management solution designed for enterprises, cloud and service providers, and government organizations.
We're excited about the new connections we made at the OSDBU conference, and the opportunities to build on our government experience. Our current government customers include domestic and international defense agencies, and federal systems integrators for large civilian agencies.
