The market's matchmaker. A major aspect of Gongaware's job is to build relationships with IT executives across the defense, civilian and intelligence sectors. She created Cisco's Federal Authorization Program to support the government's interest in contracting with small businesses by certifying that those companies' products are up to snuff. The program has helped more than 250 companies meet federal requirements and maximize their IT value to agencies. Gongaware also created a partnership that offers a unified communications solution via the cloud; it is the first, full-featured FedRAMP-ready UC solution.
