High-tech heavyweights

Top 100 report expands online

The 10th annual Washington Technology Top 100 is larger than ever and features an expanded online edition.

High-tech heavyweights are bulking up for new opportunities in homeland security, defense and e-government. At the same time, mergers and acquisitions and new players are reshaping the marketplace. Washington Technology's Top 100, featuring an enhanced online edition, tracks the changes over the past year and examines the outlook for the year ahead.

Senior Editor Nick Wakeman, key Top 100 executives, U.S. Rep. Tom Davis, R-Va., and columnist Jerry Grossman will discuss this year's report during four online forums this week.

The 10th annual report charts the evolving relationship of IT contractors to the federal government. A year and a half into the war on terrorism, two years into the push for more collaboration through e-government and outsourcing, and just weeks after fighting and winning a war in Iraq, the government relies more on its IT contractors today than ever before.

From behemoths such as Lockheed Martin Corp., which captured the No. 1 spot for the ninth year in a row, to smaller companies such as MTC, the government market is rich with opportunities focused on homeland security, defense transformation, e-government and outsourcing.

Market research firm Federal Sources Inc. of McLean, Va., is predicting that federal spending on information technology will rise from $58.7 billion in 2003 to $64.4 billion in 2005, an annual growth rate of nearly 5 percent. FSI and Eagle Eye Inc. conducted the analysis of General Services Administration data to create the Top 100 rankings.
