Established in 1995, Hollywood, Md.-based Smartronix specializes in enterprise services over secure infrastructures, including physical data centers and now cloud infrastructure. According to Joe Gerczak (pictured), executive vice president and CFO, Smartronix has built, operated and secured large data centers mainly for the government, including the U.S. Marine Corps, Army, Navy and several federal civilian agencies. To Gerczak, one of the main focuses of this contract is lowering costs for the government.
"The DOI is on an aggressive path to centralize and make their IT operations more efficient, focusing on their mission instead of delivering IT services, and by leveraging companies like us to deliver cloud solutions," said Gerczak. "We're firm believers in the cloud marketplace; we believe it can really enhance the services provided to the government and really reduce the costs of government. It advances the business, and makes us feel good as people and taxpayers in lowering costs for the government."
