The Federal Stimulus Windfall?
Never has so much been written about so much money flowing into technology coffers. President Barack Obama's bid to make like Franklin Delano Roosevelt and bring us out of the darkness and into the light has touched off a feeding frenzy in the technology community. Solution providers have put together a sales and marketing blitz aimed at public sector and healthcare opportunities springing from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act's passage in 2009.
