IDC PeerScape: Practices for Government to Require of Systems Integrators to Ensure Mission Success

This IDC study identifies the top 5 practices that government executives deem the most critical for SIs supporting the U.S. federal government. IDC Government Insights interviewed 13 government executives, identified as reference clients by the SIs that participated in the research of IDC MarketScape: U.S. Systems Integrators Serving the Federal Government 2016 Vendor Assessment (IDC #US41687116, August 2016)."Government executives requiring support from SIs to deploy 3rd Platform technologies (cloud, Big Data and analytics, mobility, social business) to improve efficiency and effectiveness, as well as lay the foundation for digital transformation, should require prospective SIs to excel in these five practice areas and provide government references who can attest to their mastery," says Adelaide O'Brien, research director, IDC Government Insights. "As the center of gravity for future government projects shifts more toward innovation and digital transformation versus efficiencies, these five SI practices identified by government executives will become even more critical for mission success," she adds.
