Federal, State and Local Government
Federal government agencies are facing unprecedented budget pressures. With the sequester removing $85 billion from federal funding and increased scrutiny from Capitol Hill, every technology program is being examined for potential cost savings. State and local governments are fighting a similar uphill battle. Faced with significantly shrinking budgets, Chief Information Officers (CIOs) are on the lookout for ways to centralize and optimize their existing technology.

Open Source Platforms
Open source platforms provide a nimble and responsive infrastructure and fulfill government mandates, such as the Department of Defense’s October 2009 memorandum on open source software. Already adopted by a host of major technology companies including Facebook, Microsoft, and Yahoo!, PostgreSQL is a proven database technology that can handle the most demanding government missions too as evidenced by its adoption by the FAA and large government defense contractors.
