IDC Report: Why Government Contractors Need Complete Opportunity Life-Cycle Management


For organizations engaged in projects with government entities, traditional CRM, ERP, and project and portfolio management systems are not the best enterprise application option and don't provide the complete life-cycle solution required to effectively manage their businesses. Given the unique requirements and ever-changing regulations in the government contracting world, finding and winning projects with and executing projects for government agencies requires a system that can provide an end-to-end continuous process from opportunity through project execution, tying front-office and back-office systems together. Purpose-built enterprise applications are available today that meet the needs of project-based organizations such as government contractors throughout the entire opportunity life cycle to support, track, and manage every aspect of a project — including bidding, planning, estimating, purchasing, and billing — delivering more effective business management.
