As many organizations that sell into government know, we are entering into the annual “use it or lose it” phase – where government goes into last minute spending mode before the federal fiscal years ends on September 30th. It is a critical time for members of industry and government to effectively connect to seize opportunities that are mutually beneficial.
More specifically, the State Department is poised to spend over $56 billion in 2011, and the Department of Defense will remain a powerhouse of government spending. And, who wouldn’t want to hear directly from State Department and DoD officials about acquisition strategies?
Tomorrow morning, Appian is serving as the premier sponsor of the “Hottest Trends in Diplomacy and Democracy” at the Ritz Carlton in Tysons Corner. The event will showcase a candid conversation with State CTO Charlie Wisecarver, Business Transformation Agency’s Keith Seaman and Appian Chairman and CEO Matt Calkins. These three experts will lay out current trends and the plans for fourth quarter acquisitions, and will provide an overview of the 2011 agenda in the Departments of State and Defense.
