Arctic IT Participates in Microsoft Federal Partner Conference
By Lessa Peter, Arctic IT Tribal/Federal Marketing Manager
Arctic Information Technology (Arctic IT), a Doyon Government Group company, recently participated in the 4th Annual Microsoft Government Cloud Forum (formerly known as the Federal Executive Forum) in Washington D.C. The forum is designed exclusively for the federal, state and local government communities to learn from and network with industry colleagues, technology solutions experts, and Microsoft strategic partners and executives. For exhibitors, like Arctic IT, it is an invite-only event for those who have been recognized for their work with the federal government as a Microsoft Partner.
The forum gives Arctic IT and other exhibitors exclusive one-on-one time with both potential customers that want to learn more about what Arctic IT has to offer and Microsoft employees that attend for the sole purpose of marketing Arctic IT services to potential clients.
The Government Cloud Forum is one of many events that Arctic IT participates in yearly to market its services and expertise as well as receive recognition for the work it does in Indian Country. Other long-standing events Arctic IT participates in include TribalNet, a conference devoted to bringing technology and tribes together; the National Indian Gaming Association Convention geared toward tribal casino leaders; the Reservation Economic Summit hosted by the National Congress of American Indian Development; and the Native American Finance Officers Association annual conferences. By participating in these events, Arctic IT continues to grow awareness throughout Indian Country as an expert in information technology services for tribal governments and enterprises.
In the past year, Arctic IT gained distinction as one of 40 Microsoft Federally Managed Partners, who are selected worldwide for work done in the public sector. This, combined with Arctic IT’s status as a 100 percent Alaska Native-owned company, with more than 10 years of experience working with tribal governments and enterprises, gives Arctic IT a great advantage over its competitors. Arctic IT’s staff of highly qualified technical consultants as well as an impressive resume featuring customers such as the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Sycuan Nation, and Choctaw Nation further strengthens this advantage.
