Inside CSRA and its go-to-market strategy

Later this month, April 19 to be exact, I’m sitting down with part of the senior management team of CSRA to get an inside look at how two leaders in the market have come together to form a new company.

CSRA is a melding of the public service sector business of Computer Sciences Corp. and SRA International.

I’ll be talking with CEO Larry Prior as well as chief technology officer Yogesh Khanna and Peter O’Donoghue, the CTO for the civilian business, as part of a Washington Technology Power Breakfast at the Tower Club in Tysons Corner, Va.

The event is free for WT Insiders (click here for information on becoming an Insider) and $49 for non-members. Here is more information on the event

We’ll try to cover a lot of ground, and I’ll be asking them questions about how they are integrating the two companies, what opportunities they see in the market that the combined company is positioned for, and what kind of partnering opportunities exist with the new company.

I’m also open to suggestions, so email me if there is a particular question you think I should ask.

I’m looking forward to this for a lot of reasons. The combination of CSC and SRA was one of the more interesting deals to close in the past year. There were two companies who had gone through separate turnaround efforts. Individually, they are compelling stories.

At the same time, their coming together reflects a variety of trends in the market – the need for scale, cost efficiencies, and competitive pressures.

They each had unique capabilities and strengths. SRA was stronger with business development, but CSC has experience winning large contracts and task orders. Both hold many of the larger task order GWAC contracts.

So, how will all of these pieces fit together?

This is a company at the leading edge of many of the trends driving today’s market, so I know we’ll have plenty to talk about.

I hope you can join us.
