Three join IBM e-gov specialty

IBM Corp. announced Wednesday that three more companies — Anteon Corp., Applied Systems Technologies Inc. and Sideware — have become partners in Big Blue's Government Specialty for e-business program.

The program recognizes the ability of each company to provide software solutions that work with IBM's infrastructure offerings to help governments with electronic services, said Todd Ramsey, IBM's general manager of global government industry.

"The benefit for us is that we now have an even stronger portfolio of e-government offerings for our customers" at every government level, Ramsey said.

Anteon is a supplier of e-government solutions, specializing in helping agencies Web-enable legacy systems.

ASTI, a database software developer, modified and documented the CobraPSJ court case administration system, which had been developed by court personnel. CobraPSJ delivers defendant — and case-based information for courts at all levels through communications technologies. The solution can be used on a statewide level and gives all participants in the justice system — judges, clerks, attorneys, law enforcement officers, interpreters, probation officers, victims, state agencies and the general public — access to data via a secure database.

Sideware provides online collaboration tools that enable agencies and companies to better manage their customer interactions via the Internet.

"We have established a framework for all of our e-business specialty partners to run on where they can work with each other at the application level," Ramsey said. "This enables our current partners to have a broader set of applications they can offer, and interact with, as they build additional offerings for their customers."

When the Government Specialty for e-business program was announced in July 2000, the first companies to earn the designation were Environmental Systems Research Institute Inc., EzGov Inc., HTE Inc. and JPH International Inc.
