What you need to know as Perspecta opens for business

We've done extensive coverage of the DXC U.S. government-Vencore-KeyPoint combination to create the new company 'Perspecta.' Here's a roundup of our coverage to date.

When the bell rings on Wall Street Friday morning, the deal to merge DXC Technology's U.S. government business, Vencore and KeyPoint will officially be complete.

A new entity -- "Perspecta" -- will step into the market through one of the bigger deals of the year.

Vencore CEO Mac Curtis will be CEO of Perspecta. Marilyn Crouther, who ran DXC's U.S. public sector business, will become chief operating officer. And DXC CEO Mike Lawrie will be Perspecta's chairman.

We believe the deal could have a bigger impact on the market than the creation of DXC itself last ear when Computer Sciences Corp. merged with the services business of Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

I say that because the CSC-HPE deal did not create a new entity for the federal market. CSC had already jettisoned its government business with the creation of CSRA (now part of General Dynamics.) The CSC-HPE deal just rebranded HPE’s government services as DXC.

But now that the DXC federal business is combined with Vencore and KeyPoint Government Solutions, it creates something truly new moving forward under the Perspecta brand.

We’ve written extensively about the deal and will continue to follow Perspecta closely. Here is a round up of what we've done so far.
