The Professional Services Council (PSC) announced it has joined and become the American representative to the World Information Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA,) a consortium of over 80 information and communications technology (ICT) industry groups from around the world.
PSC has over 400 member companies that provide solutions and services to federal agencies. Inclusion in WITISA will allow PSC members to access United Nations agencies, develop global business relationships, expand business opportunities, and engage senior government officials.
“The work we have been doing at PSC for 45 years is critical to elevating the voice of American industry leaders in professional services, including information and communications technology. Being a WITSA member will extend the reach of PSC’s advocacy and policy development work, as well as better connect our industry leaders to the largest ICT industry network in the world, ultimately to help grow their businesses and improve the global economy,” said PSC president and CEO David J. Berteau.
“On behalf of WITSA, I am very pleased to have PSC join the WITSA family of likeminded organizations from around the world,” said WITSA Secretary General Dr. Jim Poisant. “Markets and technologies are transforming and evolving rapidly. Together with rapid globalisation, newer opportunities and challenges are emerging. Together, we will address the important issues facing our industry and society by fulfilling the Promise of the Digital Age for everyone.”
Two PSC member company representatives, Martha Dorris from DCI and Alan Balutis of Cisco Systems, will lead a PSC working group at WITISA’s upcoming World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT) which will be held in Taiwan September 10-13.
