Join us for the public release and panel discussion of an in-depth survey conducted by Market Connections, Inc. and the Professional Services Council (PSC).

This survey assessed government officials’ and industry leaders’ understanding of the on-going convergence of technology and professional services and current/planned use of consumption-based “As a Service” (XaaS) acquisition approaches. While everyone agrees that convergence is causing a foundational shift in how government buys and industry provides solutions, the survey unveiled a number of interesting insights on relative perspectives and priorities for government and industry.
