FierceMarkets Launches New Enterprise IT Publication
WASHINGTON, DC - Feb. 9, 2009 - FierceMarkets (http://www.fiercemarkets.com) today launched FierceGovernmentIT (http://www.fiercegovernmentit.com), a new online publication targeting IT executives and systems integrators in the government sector.
The free email newsletter and corresponding Web site will cover the latest news, trends, and technologies driving the government IT sector. Published three times a week on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, FierceGovernmentIT will feature exclusive insights, commentary, and special reports on IPv6, security, green IT, telework, training, the federal IT budget, policy changes, and other pressing issues facing today’s government IT executives.
"The mission of FierceGovernmentIT is to be a one-stop resource for government executives and systems integrators seeking to stay abreast of the latest industry news," said Ron Lichtinger, publisher of the FierceMarkets Enterprise IT group. "With government IT spending projected to increase by 5.5% in 2009, the timing for this new publication could not be better."
FierceGovernmentIT will be edited by Judi Hasson, a veteran IT and tech industry journalist with more than 10 years experience in the government IT sector. Hasson is also the Editor of FierceCIO. Prior to writing for Fierce, Hasson spent seven years as editor-at-large for Federal Computer Week.
"This new publication serves a real need in the government IT community," says Hasson. "There are many changes that the Obama administration will bring to the government IT sector. That includes tighter budgets and greater reliance on technology to make government hum."
