“Immediately after UNICOM’s acquisition of GTSI, now UNICOM Government, Inc., I instructed our technical team to invest heavily in acquiring key certifications in a number of IBM technical solutions,” said Corry Hong, founder, President and CEO of UNICOM Global.  “With that in-house expertise coupled with this new agreement, our UNICOM Government team is now enabled to go-to-market with IBM’s products leveraging UNICOM’s deep expertise in mission-critical solutions for the federal and state and local agencies that UGI serves.”

The range of products spans several architectures and solutions, including the IBM PureFlex System, which provides integrated infrastructure to deliver cloud and analytics solutions with leading-edge economies.

The entry into the Solution Provider program, which is effective immediately, continues UNICOM Government’s efforts to enhance and sharpen its focus on the solutions agencies need.  UNICOM Global’s extensive relationship with IBM across all platforms over the last 32 years adds additional value and expertise to the UGI team, enabling deeper reach and capabilities for defense, civilian and state and local government agencies throughout the United States.
