Companies that sell products to the Federal Government are always looking for ways to expand into more lucrative and higher margin service offerings. And service providers are often looking for product offerings to round out their business lines. Either way, it's easier said than done. However, on this week's Gov Con Straight Talk with Microsoft you'll hear from a panel of top executives who know what it takes to successfully grow products and services business lines to the Federal Government.

The question now facing federal IT managers is no longer whether or not to virtualization, but which approach best accommodates both end-users' demands and IT's need for greater manageability and security. Federal agencies are already reaping the benefits of desktop virtualization, effectively delivering anytime, anywhere computing to an increasingly mobile and distant workforce.

But for many the explosion of new virtualization technologies seems overwhelming. How do you make sense of the changing desktop landscape, and arrive at a solution that boosts workforce productivity while improving management efficiencies? Where do you get started?

Adopt real-world strategies to master and manage effectively areas of Contract Administration & Cash Flow Management Governance
Join us for this month's Gov Con Straight Talk where Microsoft will be joined by Dwayne Cook, Midatlantic Practice Leader, Tatum Partners and Mac McLauchlin, also a partner at Tatum specializing in International Management. The discussion will focus on how companies with government contracts need to adopt real-word strategies to master and manage effectively areas of Contract Administration and Cash Flow Management Governance. Panelists will touch upon the interest the Government has in offering contractors opportunities for financial rewards sufficient to stimulate effective contract performance, and to attract the best qualified small and large business concerns. Rules, however, need to be understood and implemented in order to achieve good contract performance, profitability and adequate cash flow levels.
