IDC Government Insights today announced the availability of two new reports, Vendor Assessment: Top 25 IT Services Vendors Tell a Larger Story – Government Datacenter Consolidation (Document #GI226454) and Top Federal Government IT Vendors by Agency – 2009 (Document #GI226808). The studies are designed to assist government agencies in identifying key vendors for an IT consolidation project and to help vendors gain market share as agencies move toward shared services and cloud solutions.

This has fueled a strong demand for vendors with a very specific set of IT systems integration skills.
