State and Local Government Plus Education (SLED)

Derive support for the general IT support services and technology sourcing needs of New York State and New York City agencies and educational entities spans two decades. 

Today, we continue to help them make their budgetary, strategic IT planning, compliance, security, and sourcing decisions. We've also expanded to serve the State of New Jersey (NJ), and opportunities associated with the United States General Services Administration (US GSA) contract.

In 2021, city, state, and federal agencies will be focusing on projects that revitalize local economies and infrastructures. The success of these projects will depend on digital transformation projects, including but not limited to the below IT support services:

  • Remote office/infrastructure support
  • Datacenter revitalization
  • Hybrid cloud
  • DR and backup capabilities
  • IoT and edge computing
  • Mobile computing solutions
  • ERP implementations
  • Data management and consolidation
  • Data Analytics

Derive’s IT support services are designed to ensure governments do better with less — addressing budgetary concerns and cycles and creating powerful ROI through lean services, well-planned engagements and powerful, cost-effective technology sourcing and service contracts.

Meeting Government and Public Sector Challenges

With long experience in serving state and local government organizations, we are thoroughly familiar with their challenges. Derive helps breathe new life into technology environments through:

  • Understanding issues and challenges – strategic assessments and evaluations of legacy compute, storage, network, security systems, and application assets

  • Identifying options – a technology roadmap plan that includes a “real world” ROI analysis (developed with each organization’s specific requirements in mind) for better utilization of existing technology assets, new system purchases, and reduced-cost implementation and maintenance services

  • Efficient implementations and execution – leveraging combinations of “best fit” technology to improve performance and operational reliability while reducing or capping IT costs. Different techniques come into play, including cloud and hybrid cloud technologies, IoT, virtualization (extensions and better usage of existing VDI infrastructure), and general infrastructure modernization and consolidation with efficient blade servers and storage assets

Government Domain Expertise

Derive’s experience in supporting the specific IT support services and technology needs of enterprises within this domain includes:

  • Government agencies large and small, with distributed or consolidated workforces
  • Public utilities
  • Public healthcare systems
  • Municipal transportation agencies (e.g., the New York MTA)
  • Public educational institutions
