ITAA creates wireless task force

The Information Technology Association of America's Federal Committee has formed a wireless task force to keep organizations up to date on the capabilities of wireless data and voice technologies. Ed Hearst, senior director of government affairs for Sybase Inc., will lead the task force as its chairman.

"New and existing wireless technologies can be the difference between good federal computing solutions and exceptional ones," said ITAA President Harris Miller, in a statement. "As our homeland security challenges broaden and diversify, ITAA sees an increased role for wireless. Our federal committee, which has been dedicated to educating the government customer for many years, remains on the cutting edge by recognizing the need for wireless adaptation in the public sector, which can save money, time and increase government effectiveness."
