AvePoint Public Sector Wins GOVTek Executive Government Technology Award for Top Technologies to Watch


Arlington, VA (PRWEB) July 09, 2014

AvePoint Public Sector, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of AvePoint, Inc., the leader in governance, compliance, and management solutions for social enterprise collaboration platforms, today announced it was named the recipient of the GOVTek Executive Government Technology Award for Top Technologies to Watch. The awards, given out by the Government Technology Research Alliance (GTRA), were presented June 23 during the GOVTek Awards Gala in Leesburg, VA. Andrew Norris, Vice President of North American Partner Team for AvePoint, and Tarek Shamounki, Vice President of Sales US Federal Civilian EPG for AvePoint Public Sector, were on hand to accept the award on the company’s behalf.

The awards are given to recognize government and industry IT leaders whose vision, innovation, and remarkable accomplishments have improved efficiency, the delivery of government services, citizen engagement, information sharing, and national security. AvePoint Public Sector has received a GOVTek Executive Government Technology Award for two consecutive years, winning the Best Collaboration Solution award last year.

“AvePoint Public Sector is incredibly proud to have received this honor from the Government Technology Research Alliance for Top Technologies to Watch,” said Chris Foreman, CEO, AvePoint Public Sector. “Security and content control are essential when working in government, and this award validates our ongoing efforts to provide the public sector with solutions to enhance productivity without sacrificing data safety.”

AvePoint Public Sector works extensively with customers in every branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, Federal Civilian, and Intelligence agencies, as well as State and Local governments, to meet their mission-critical business objectives utilizing Microsoft SharePoint. AvePoint Public Sector, headquartered in Arlington, VA, is a US Government GSA certified provider via strategic partnerships, and was also named a 2014 Microsoft Partner of the Year Winner for Public Sector – Public Safety & National Security.

“As we have discussed many times at this year’s Council meeting, government and healthcare successes do not get recognized in today’s media, which focuses on headline-grabbing negative news stories,” said Parham Eftekhari, EVP of Marketing and Research for GTRA & HTRAC. “We are honored to have the opportunity to recognize these hard working men and women who are truly making a difference in our country by protecting our nation, saving lives, and improving the services which help run America. Congratulations to all of this year’s nominees and winners.”

GTRA brings together executive-level government IT leaders to collaborate, strategize, and create innovative solutions in critical areas including infrastructure modernization, cyber security, cloud computing, big data, risk management, portfolio management, enterprise architecture, and health IT.
