Advocacy - Federal Advocacy
In the federal marketplace ITI serves to convene intimate industry forums for our members to engage directly with the government customer to discuss their IT investments strategies and plans. These discussions are focused on the specific market needs, challenges and opportunities these agencies face when acquiring technology goods and services to meet their current and future mission goals. Through these engagements, we discuss the innovative technologies agencies want to adopt or are using from cloud computing, cyber, mobility, big data, identity management, Internet of Things, and social media.
These offerings are designed around the major federal markets of Federal Civilian, Defense, Intelligence Community, Homeland Security and the General Services Administration.
