Digital transformation – changing processes and information into a digital form – has been a popular trend changing industries from automotive to healthcare to government. To be able to move forward in digital transformation and the DevOps space, organizations can hire people with more modern technology skill sets. And to support this new civil servant, the appropriate tools and technologies should be in place.

Dcode accelerates emerging technology companies into the government, providing them what they might need to succeed in the federal market through our comprehensive acceleration programs. We run several cohorts every year that focus on various areas like artificial intelligence (AI), data analytics, cloud technology, cybersecurity, and developer tools and platforms.

Bringing together Dcode and Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers a powerful launch pad to help technology companies decrease time to revenue. Companies accepted Dcode’s 10-week acceleration program receive concentrated guidance and support on crucial aspects of entering the federal market, including:

  • Courses with renowned industry subject matter experts on the inner workings of government – from marketing and sales to compliance, procurement, pricing and more;
  • Exclusive briefings with key government buyers and industry leaders;
  • Access to industry specialists and mentors for expert guidance and networking connections;
  • Exposure to an extensive partner network of large and small partners to increase revenue opportunities; and
  • Hands on strategic planning and go-to-market support to maximize your resources.

Along with the programming, Dcode technology companies have the opportunity to work with AWS public sector teams to further speed their time to market. Companies leave Dcode’s acceleration program with tactical plans, close integration with AWS teams, and in many cases, immediate opportunities for revenue.

Connecting technology and government

Since Dcode started its acceleration program, it introduced innovation training for government leaders looking to bring in technology that can support their missions. Dcode also offers tech scouting and custom accelerators for government. Dcode has worked with 70 tech companies and hundreds of government organizations, driving more than 100 new implementations of commercial technology in government and $70 million in federal contracts in the past year and a half alone.
