Government agencies do tend to purchase though a government-approved systems integrator (SI). Some of these SIs are already endorsing open source. I wonder if one of these firms will see competitive advantage in acquiring OpenLogic. OK, well, maybe a strategic partnership would be a first step.
While the financial services sector is the largest driver of OpenLogic's revenue, it’s important to note that government is among the fastest-growing revenue contributors. I wouldn't be surprised at all to learn that government becomes OpenLogic's top revenue contributing sector over the next two years.
