"For our government clients with complex IT environments, it is critical to have strong foundational hardware and software to provide the vital services its citizens need,” said Marilyn Crouther, general manager of the U.S. public sector division at HP Enterprise Services. “Over the years, we have demonstrated service delivery excellence that we will apply to help DMDC be able to count on their technology to enable rather than disrupt daily business.”
