Reporter's Notebook: JEDI award fallout, how integrators are reacting and more

Editor Nick Wakeman and Senior Staff Writer Ross Wilkers discuss the fallout of the JEDI cloud contract award, mergers and acquisitions and other top-of-mind issues in the federal market.

JEDI was certainly a blockbuster award to Microsoft as they bested Amazon Web Services, but don't call it an upset. In fact, many systems integrators are giving it a simple shrug of the shoulders because they did not see the choice of one vendor over another as critical for them. Most integrators work with both Microsoft and AWS and saw an opportunity to support JEDI no matter who won.

Wilkers and Wakeman also discuss Oracle's continuing fight against JEDI. And then there is the mergers and acquisition activity, which remains strong.

The pair discuss what these activities mean and what's next as we head into the final weeks of 2019.
