GTSI Technologists Appointed To TechAmerica Foundation Big Data Commission

GTSI Corp. (NASDAQ: GTSI), a systems integration, solutions and services provider to federal, state and local government, today announced that Prem Jadhwani, Senior Technologist and Solutions Architect at GTSI, was selected as a Commissioner on the TechAmerica Foundation Big Data Commission (BDC). Working in conjunction with a government advisory board, the BDC will provide guidance on how government should best leverage big data to address critical business issues and better deliver on the mission, as well as examine how big data can help drive U.S.-based innovation and competitiveness. Darren House, a Data Center Technologist at GTSI, will serve as Mr. Jadhwani’s Deputy.

“Government has embraced technology as a critical component of mission success,” said Sterling Phillips, Chief Executive Officer, GTSI. “Agencies need to use that technology to harness the power of these extensive, diverse sets of data that are expanding across government. TechAmerica Foundation’s Big Data Commission will help identify ways to apply this data to create more efficient solutions for better governance.”

Following the Obama Administration’s announcement to invest $200 million in big data research and development, the BDC was created to understand the complexity and variety of data and define key business outcomes. The Commission will focus on sensor networks, social networks, social media data analysis, astronomy, atmosphere science, genomics, biological and other interdisciplinary scientific research, military surveillance, medical records, full-motion video and large-scale e-commerce endeavors.

“Prem is an ideal candidate to serve on the BDC,” added Phillips. “His technical leadership skills and extensive experience in the government market will help agencies address how they can best capture and process increasing amounts of unstructured data, as well as manage and advance big data initiatives. As a company, we are proud to support the effort.”
