Frost & Sullivan Explores Business Opportunities for IT Providers in the US Department of Defense
Like most enterprises and government entities, information technology (IT) is vital for the US Department of Defense (DoD), specifically for its communications, situational awareness, and combat systems. As it continues standardization and quality improvement efforts, the DoD is currently searching for input from large established IT firms and innovative start-ups to save costs, speed up integration, and improve capabilities. To help IT providers understand the available opportunities in the defense sector, the Aerospace & Defense team at Frost & Sullivan will showcase the recent DoD program funding and contract activity for IT hardware, software, networks, and services.
Join Defense Industry Analyst Brad Curran for a Growth Opportunity briefing, “Top Growth Opportunities for IT Providers in the US Department of Defense,” on September 17 at 11 a.m. EST. The briefing will provide a framework of the IT products and services sought by the DoD, identify the leading influencers and market participants, and outline practical go-to-market strategies.
Critical insights for the audience to understand include:
- Obstacles to overcome, such as size, weight, and power (SWaP), and algorithms for cybersecurity.
- The DoD’s digital modernization
- How commercial technology insertions, while speeding development, also increase competition and lower market participants’ margins.
- How both traditional defense companies and commercial IT firms can help the DoD meet operational goals and enable an Internet of Battlefield Things.
