    The briefing will detail HHS's proposed $7 billion IT budget, agency initiatives, and priorities. It also will emphasize major funded opportunities for software and hardware manufacturers, resellers, and solution providers.

    immixGroup’s briefing will provide a wealth of actionable intelligence for federal sales, marketing, and business development professionals. Participants receive sales-ready data on programs, key business drivers, and contact information as well as a detailed territory planning document. IT vendors can leverage this information to develop an effective sales plan for the coming year and win new business in an increasingly challenging marketplace.

    Topics to be covered in the upcoming briefing include:

    • How current IT strategy implementations are shaping major HHS programs and initiatives
    • Which opportunities are funded for IT product acquisition
    • How to position products against anticipated technology requirements
    • Which HHS contract vehicles are critical for commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) procurement

    “Despite an uncertain budget climate, we expect HHS’s IT budget to increase to about $7 billion in FY12,” said Tim Larkins, market intelligence consultant for immixGroup. “We believe the agency will need support in areas such as data sharing, reporting, and IT security. COTS product vendors will find many short-term opportunities to provide solutions that can deliver results and cost savings for HHS customers.”
