INDUS SVP Mike Bowers spoke with GovCon Executive recently about which markets he considers to be emerging in the industry: “Call it what you want: social media, networking, collaboration, Web 2.0, this administration is very focused on improving communication and the sharing of information. We just recently completed a project at Goddard Space Flight Center you may have heard of it: It’s called NASA Spacebook. We supported that customer, assisted in building that application, and we are taking what we learned from that on the road. We’ve called on a number of other customers and have several proposals in the works. We think that’s an area that’s going to get some play in the future. I don’t know if you’ll see hundred-million-dollar projects, but I do think what you’ll see will be projects that will be very visible and they are sitting at the highest level of a customer organization. And I think that’s important to us.”
