Firms ally to help feds

Some leading information technology companies that do business with

the federal government are banding together to expand their offerings and

attract more public-sector customers.

Electronic Data Systems Corp. on Nov. 28 announced a reseller agreement

with Secure Computing Corp., and JetForm Corp., a provider of e-process

solutions, announced that it has joined Siebel Systems Inc.'s alliance program

as a premier software partner.

EDS' alliance with Secure Computing will enable it to offer customers

authentication services via Secure Computing's SafeWord and SafeWord Plus

products as well as network protection via Secure Computing's firewall product,

Sidewinder, said Chris Schwartz-bauer, vice president of business development

at Secure Computing.

The Siebel/JetForm alliance will allow customers to extend their Siebel

e-business applications by enabling users to complete application processes

online, thanks to JetForm's specialty — document fulfillment — said John

Hogerland, vice president of global business development and alliances at

JetForm.

Anteon, Info Builders join

E-business enabler Anteon Corp. and Information Builders, a provider

of Web-based business platforms, announced a strategic partnership Nov.

27 focused on providing agencies with e-government solutions.

Anteon of Fairfax, Va., and Information Builders of New York are each

targeting Internet-related opportunities in the government market and are

hoping to benefit from each other's strengths in software and systems engineering,

integration, business intelligence, reporting and content delivery, said

Joseph Kampf, president and chief executive officer at Anteon.
