GovConExec Magazine Finds Peak Markets for GovCon Industry

Executive Mosaic, the parent company of ExecutiveGov and a stable of online news properties geared toward the government-contracting industry, has launched the fall issue of its quarterly print magazine, GovConExec.

The latest issue focuses on growth opportunities for government contractors. This issue comes at a time where the nation is taking steps to get is fiscal house in order, requiring contractors to deliver cost savings for the government.

The GovConExec staff focused on five key markets that represent growth prospects for federal contractors: cybersecurity, healthcare IT, cloud computing, mobility and rule of law.

Cybersecurity is always a priority for the government, ever more so after attacks on both the government and the industry.

Healthcare IT is showing promise, with electronic health records as the centerpiece of this growing market.

Cloud computing is increasingly becoming the norm in the government, with the General Services Administration recently announcing it has moved to a cloud-based system and other agencies soon to follow.

Mobility is on the rise thanks to smartphones and tablets, allowing everyone to stay connected when they are not sitting at their desks.

Rule of law allows contractors to extend their expertise on how to rebuild institutions and help countries affected by war and turmoil. Contractors focus on three key areas: defense, diplomacy and development.

In the “INSIGHT” section, Jacques Gansler examines how the “soft power” of the State Department acts in tandem with the Pentagon’s “hard power.”

Vangent CEO Mac Curtis is spotlighted in “CEO Profile.” Vangent recently made the news with General Dynamics announcing it will buy Vangent in a $960 million deal.

FedTech Soundoff features the experts’ views on health IT, cloud back-up plans and mobile security.

GovConExec also compiled its annual “Go-to List” of the top advisers in the government contracting industry.
