That ability, combined with our sustained commitment to superior customer service, has brought us to where we are today.”

    According to SIIA, the NextGen program provides exposure to companies delivering game-changing solutions. The program aims to bring awareness to six verticals: Mobile, Social, Big Data, Security, Healthcare, and Financial Services.
