In a piece analyzing the state of the GovCon M&A market for Executive Mosaic, Bob Kipps, managing director of KippsDeSanto & Co.noted that while the pace of defense and government services deals has declined in the first quarter of 2013 from the end of last year, companies still have “a strong appetite” for firms with depth in the right technological specialties.

Areas including health, collaboration and cloud computing, data analytics, cybersecurity, special operations forces, C4ISR and select areas of intelligence will continue to be in high demand for firms interested in staying the market in the long term, Kipps found.

TNNI took a look at some recent developments in the those areas, including completed deals.

NetApp was recently recognized as an industry leader in electronic data storage with a 41.2 percent share of the billion-dollar market, while CRGT picked up Guident Technologies, a provider of big data and analytics services.

CACI has been one of the more active movers in the health IT space, making its own data play with its January pick up of IDL Solutions and closing its Emergint Technologies buy in December.

PwC made a move to solidify a role as a major player in the federal health IT space by adding Ray Group International, a deal Kipps advised and described in depth to ExecutiveBiz earlier this year.

In cloud computing, TNNI reported that CGI Federal was certified for the agency-wide FedRAMP program, clearing its prviate cloud products and services for use in the federal government.

Autonomic Resources is another company that recently had its private cloud certified for federal use.
