“16 agile digital services firms are coming together to form the Digital Services Coalition to bring innovation and agility to government IT contracting.”
“In the private sector, there is a digital transformation going on with companies implementing Agile methodology to work more efficiently and effectively. But the digital transformation has been slow to arrive to the public sector. The current “big box” contractor model, which often prioritizes risk management and profit, is failing to deliver the kinds of collaboration, transparency, and efficiency that is being seen in the private sector.”
“The Digital Services Coalition is an opportunity to collaborate, not compete. By bringing together forward-thinking small to midsize companies, the DSC is working towards the common mission of serving the American public by improving how government works…”

G2X TAKE: In this highly competitive environment, it can be challenging for small businesses to have their voices heard, which is why we take note when a group of Odd and Fearless Digital Services firms, who have been quietly picking up some strategic contract wins across CMS, VA and the broader Federal market, organize efforts to try and bring more innovation and agility to Government IT contracting.
From Ad Hoc and Agile Six to Nava, Fearless, Skylight, Oddball and Flexion, this group of firms, who were relative unknowns a few short years ago, are clearly on the radar as both a partner and potential competitor for those who compete in the Digital Government Transformation and Digital Services sector. We will be keeping tabs on this coalition to see how they might leverage this platform to influence and change the way Government does business. #onetowatch
