Teaming Will be the Key to Federal Success for Software Firms

RESTON, Va., Dec. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- In an analysis of over 3,000 federal business opportunities, five software product categories have been identified as having a high number of potential subcontracting opportunities, according to a report released today by INPUT, the authority on government business. The five categories are document & content management, project management, supply chain & logistics management, knowledge management, and inventory management.

Federal IT contracted spending for 2006 is estimated to reach $64 billion with software procurements accounting for nearly $5 billion of the market. INPUT has identified the largest segment of software subcontract opportunities is under business and enterprise applications. The top five categories within the report comprise nearly 30 percent of this segment.

"The federal market holds ample opportunities for software vendors, whether they focus on targeted applications, enterprise solutions, or the underlying platforms," said John Slye, senior analyst, federal subcontracting opportunities for INPUT. "Success for both the large primes and small subcontractors in the software market will rely heavily on their ability to create effective partnerships."

The best way to identify potential partners is to be active in any of the fine organizations on the sidebar to your right.
