The rush of new technologies in recent years -- starting with cloud computing, but also big data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning -- and the realities of aging infrastructure have pushed customers and contractors alike to find new ways of doing business.

Now the coronavirus pandemic is turbocharging that pressure change and rapidly adapt.

The traditional role of the systems integrator, which relied on providing bodies by the hour, is rapidly fading away and being replaced by more commercial models that rely on various “as-a-service” approaches.

In this virtual Washington Technology Power Breakfast, we’ll explore what this means for the prime contractors that have dominated the market for so long. How are they changing their strategies? What kinds of in-house expertise are valued most? What kind of infrastructure do they need? How have their partnering strategies evolved?

We’ll also hear from a high-level government executive who will describe why this evolution is so important to the government customer -- how it drives security, efficiency and improves delivery of their missions.
