Intelligent Decisions (ID), Inc., a premier global technology solutions provider, announced today that the company’s continuous monitoring solution won the “Best Solution Award,” jointly with BigFix, at the May 2011 Government Technology Research Alliance (GTRA) Council Meeting. Attendees voted for their choice through surveys they submitted upon completion of the meeting and the winner was selected based on popular vote. The meeting was part of the GTRA Government Technology Collaboration held last month in Bedford, PA, which brought together elite technology leaders in order to collaborate and engage in meaningful dialogue to create the foundation for future success.
Roy Stephan, ID vice president of technology solutions, was a featured speaker at the GTRA conference, serving as a panelist in a key session entitled Successful Transformation of Infrastructure and Security Strategies: Navigating 25-Point Reform in a Climate of Shrinking Budgets. Specifically, Stephan detailed the challenges of balancing security demands with the financial advantages of Cloud computing solutions. Additionally, Stephan led a full schedule of board meetings with top ranking government officials to discuss the importance of continuous monitoring of IT software and systems in compliance with Congressional and Office of Management and Budget guidelines, rules and regulations.
