Govplace Announces Partnership with RackWare

By | Events, News, Technology

Reston, VA, March 7, 2017 — Govplace, a leading solutions provider for the federal government, and RackWare, a Hybrid Cloud Management software provider, today announced their partnership to introduce new software products that enable Federal Agencies to quickly and safely kick start their data center consolidation and cloud migration efforts as well as enhance their disaster recovery readiness.

As Federal agencies continue to transform and transition their workloads to consolidated data center and Cloud-based ecosystems, the ability to manage workloads between authorized service providers is key to ensure capabilities and costs are aligned with agency needs. RackWare’s software will support Govplace’s commitment to advising agencies on how to best optimize their IT workloads.

“We selected to partner with RackWare because their software suite offers an elegant solution for enabling Federal Agencies to increase the mobility of their physical and virtual workloads. This means that agencies will finally have the needed automation capabilities that can empower their datacenter and cloud migration initiatives,” said Majed Saadi, Govplace’s CTO. “It also provides a most-needed solution for increasing workload portability. In other words, agencies can now eliminate lock-in risks by having the tools needed to switch or cut-off providers when problems arise.”

“RackWare provides large enterprises with cloud management solutions that help manage thousands of complex workloads. We know the federal space has similar challenges and want to provide that same service there,” said Sash Sunkara, CEO and founder of RackWare.  “We’re excited to work with an experienced partner in the federal space that has knowledge of complex IT environments.  Govplace is a clear leader, with an impressive track record helping organizations improve their environments and take advantage of the cloud.”

If It’s Broke, Fix It!

By | Events, Technology

Govplace’s Tina Scogin recently spoke at the 2016 APMP Conference in a session titled, “If It’s Broke, Fix It!”

Here is a brief summary of the session:

Proposal leadership isn’t easy. You are expected to make the process work, as long as no one else has to change. Working with “we’ve always done it that way” writers, reviewers, and stakeholders can be maddening. It’s a wonder more proposal managers aren’t in jail… for murder. The struggle is real. This workshop covers strategies for transitioning nay-sayers into advocates, review examples of successful lessons learned with tangible results, and strategize solutions to challenges that won’t overwhelm the very individuals you want to help change. Come share, discover, and inspire each other.

Tina Scogin, CF APMP, is Senior Capture Manager at Govplace, a small federal system integrator.  Tina uses 25 years’ diverse experience and out-of-the-box creativity to manage strategic and tactical proposal efforts. Tina has 18 years’ direct federal proposal experience serving in the full range of proposal positions on hundreds of procurements ranging from $20K to $20B. Tina has managed 2- to 25-member proposal teams with as many teaming partners for small, medium, and large federal contractors in the D.C. area.
