RESTON, Va., March 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CRGT, a leading provider of emerging technology solutions for the federal government, announced today the launch of a new line of services and solutions specifically targeted to support mobile technology adoption (www.crgt.com/solutions/mobility.html). Based on several years of early customer adoption experience within the government, this portfolio of services and solutions will allow agencies to meet the growing demands of a mobile workforce in a seamless and rapid fashion. Designed to support needs across the full life-cycle spectrum, CRGT's Mobility Solutions are targeted at federal, state and local governments, along with commercial clients that require secure mobile access to enterprise application services and data. This announcement is the culmination of extensive efforts and investment by CRGT to become one of the first companies to deliver a complete, end-to-end suite of services and Mobility Solutions targeted at the federal government.
To date, agencies and commercial enterprise alike have largely utilized a piecemeal approach to the challenge of mobile technology, cherry picking amongst various mobile device platforms, or sometimes choosing not to support them at all. But market conditions have shifted dramatically, including the proliferation of broadband access, the increase of rich media content, and the tumultuous growth trend of user-owned Smartphone devices and other mobile platforms, all driving IT organizations across government and commercial entities to take a more proactive posture in managing this technology within their environment.
"The most complex questions extend beyond which mobile devices the enterprise should or should not support," said John Scott, VP of Emerging Technology solutions for CRGT. "The more challenging set of questions surround how to extend agency and corporate application services to devices they may or may not own, while ensuring compliance to government policies, adherence to certification and accreditation rules, and maintenance of a tight security posture for both data in transit and data at rest on those mobile devices beyond the office walls."
With deep and proven experience delivering mobility solutions for agencies that includes the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the U.S., Army and the U.S. Postal Service, CRGT has deployed secure mobility infrastructure that provides end-to-end connectivity for all major Smartphone and laptop platforms. CRGT's Mobility Solutions consist of five comprehensive lines of service. Each line can be offered as a standalone service, or can be combined as a comprehensive offering spanning strategy, design, compliance, deployment and ongoing operations support:
- Mobility Adoption Planning
- Mobile Technology Assessment
- Security & Compliance Governance
- Deployment Engineering
- Operations, Maintenance, and Sustaining Engineering
CRGT announces this new practice based on overwhelming commercial and federal mobile computing trends. "Access to enterprise systems is trending increasingly toward the mobile platform. Prevailing market research suggests that the number of Smartphone devices deployed will surpass total desktop devices by the end of this year if not next. Every enterprise is challenged to deliver a mobility strategy that will meet their evolving demands," said Tom Ferrando, president and CEO of CRGT. "We're one of the first service providers to offer a proven portfolio of Mobility Solutions that addresses the full range of needs and requirements for customers tackling this new technology challenge."
