Collaboration Challenges for Federal Agencies


With many agencies based in sprawling campuses across the globe, open and accessible collaboration solutions are needed more than ever. Those solutions must comply with ever-evolving security regulations.

Mission Assurance

Given limited resources, many agencies rely on aging communication systems and disparate collaboration tools. Achieving federal missions requires a workforce that’s empowered to collaborate and succeed.


Even the best collaboration solutions mean little if those tasked with using them lack the training and knowledge. Making the most of your collaboration investments requires employees who can and will use them to their fullest.

Our Approach

Reliable Network Access Anywhere Anytime From Any Device

For modern IT organizations, a unified, interoperable collaboration ecosystem is the key to a more productive, collaborative, secure workforce. Whether it’s a project requiring participation from people spread thousands of miles apart, a warfighter in the middle of a combat zone or a person experiencing a medical emergency in the middle of a massive campus, the right collaboration experiences increasingly mean the difference between mission success and institutional failure.

Sirius Federal helps clients navigate the communications and collaboration landscape to develop a comprehensive strategy complete with best-in-breed solutions and tailored to their specific missions. With the right collaboration solution, you can transform how your people and teams interact and work together. The result? An organization and employees who are empowered to succeed.
