BIMS Keynote Kapur Talks Growth, Data, Millennials and a New Era of Lead Generation

"Traditional lead generation is on its way out the door," Rajeev Kapur, CEO of 1105 Media and a keynote speaker at SIIA's upcoming Business Information & Media Summit (BIMS), Nov. 14-16 in Fort Lauderdale, told me recently. "Over the next couple years it's going to be challenged. If you continue to do lead gen the same way over time, you'll fall behind. The folks providing the leads—i.e. 1105—need to do a better job of providing leads.

"Our customer base is starting to change. Our customers, the people receiving leads, they have a challenge with thinning staffs so they want us to do more. [That means] providing more value in the leads. In the next 2-3 years or not sooner the traditional lead gen model is probably gone and replaced with something entirely different. That's why when I came aboard and talked to customers, we started to look at new ways to evolve and today we're working on a new technology platform to roll out for customers."

2016 GCN dig IT Awards Call for Nominations Now Open

Revamped awards celebrate discovery and innovation in government IT

(VIENNA, VA., April 19, 2016)— GCN and 1105 Public Sector Media Group are pleased to announce that nominations for the 2016 GCN dig IT Awards are now being accepted.

For 28 years, the GCN Awards have showcased general excellence in government IT. This year, with the GCN dig IT Awards, we are sharpening the focus to showcase what matters most: transformative tech that is truly reinventing government.

"Most people know that the government invented the Internet and developed GPS," GCN Editor-in-Chief Troy K. Schneider said. 'But there are so many more examples, each and every year, where public sector is sparking important innovations that don't get nearly the attention they deserve. And governments at all levels are taking new technologies developed elsewhere and using them in remarkably creative ways. That's what led us to the dig IT acronym – this discovery and innovation in government IT should really be put in the spotlight."
