Promising year ahead, if ...

Steve LeSueur

The new year brings changes to the government market -- and to Washington Technology.

For our first issue of 2003, Washington Technology examines the year ahead, including a look at new technologies on the horizon, marketplace trends and efforts by Congress and the administration to jump-start e-government and homeland security.

The government information technology market represented one of the few bright spots in last year's economy, and this year promises much of the same ... if the country can avoid war ... if Congress can settle budget disputes in a timely manner ... if funding for homeland security finally starts flowing ... if the states can solve their budget crises ... if the economy doesn't fall further into recession.

The opportunities are matched by the uncertainty.

As for Washington Technology, we introduce two new features this issue. One is our "Buy Lines" column, to be written on a rotating basis by consultants with Acquisition Solutions Inc. and by Stan Soloway, president of the Professional Services Council. The other feature, "Integrator Toolbox," will examine and compare new products and software coming to the government market. Both features are aimed at providing readers with practical information and advice that can improve a company's bottom line.

And on our Web site, look for new online columnist, Gary Arlen, who will examine technology developments in the government market. His column,

"For Tech's Sake," debuts Jan. 22.
