WASHINGTON, WA: Avnet Government Solutions, Avnet’s wholly owned subsidiary that is specifically focused on the U.S. public sector, has enhanced its General Services Administration (GSA) schedule by adding Catalogic Software technology products and solutions.

Catalogic Software is the software provider of intelligent copy data solutions, which was introduced as a new business to help independent software vendor (ISV), system integrator (SI), and managed service provider (MSP), who capture IT market share with the U.S. government in 2014. It improves operational efficiency by combining cataloging and instant data access for backup, DR, Test/Dev and big data analytics across physical, virtual and cloud environments. It also enables enterprises to manage and organize the use of data worldwide in support of mission-critical operations.

With the inclusion of Catalogic Software, Avnet Government Solutions can now better serve its government partners. It also helps them in giving its partners the access to the federal government’s largest Government-Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) that agencies use to buy solutions for their IT needs.

Commenting on the new partnership, Tom Grave, VP of Marketing at Catalogic Software, says, “IT organizations in federal agencies recognize that advanced data management is at the heart of their mission-critical IT functions, including disaster recovery, test and development, data protection, and analytics. Catalogic Software is excited to partner with Avnet Government Solutions to deliver a holistic approach to copy data management to public sector customers, empowering them to reduce costs while improving their ability to deliver the required data access to their internal customers, and to taxpayers at large.”

Moreover, Avnet’s partners are now able to access additional resources to help accelerate their capabilities in the government market. Its IT services offerings include hybrid cloud services, orchestration, automation of software-defined data centers, business intelligence and analytics, security, engineering and integration, education, training, field installation, maintenance, asset repair, recycling, disposal, enterprise, and digital solutions.
