PRLog - July 6, 2011 - RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. -- The Federal IT market over the near term will be driven by two major forces – pressure to increase efficiency, and the drive to implement new technologies. Government agencies seeking to transform their business processes are embracing e-business and e-commerce initiatives at an accelerating rate.
