Webinar: Best Practices in Targeted Legacy Modernization in Government

I am giving a webinar on Best Practices in Targeted Legacy Modernization in Government March 5, 2014 at Noon Eastern with Claye Greene, MD of government solutions provider and Decision Management Solutions partner TechBlue.

These platforms help you manage documentation, track overall levels of risk, generate required reporting, identify […]
