Date: December 14, 2021

Location: Katy, Texas

NITCO Inc., a technology services company headquartered in Katy, Texas, was awarded a State of Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) Cooperative Contract for Software Solutions, specifically targeted for digital automation. The focus of the software solutions contract is for Low Code/No Code Robotic Process Automation, also known as RPA, and Artificial Intelligence Solutions to optimize business processes.

In the 2020-2024 State of Texas Strategy for Information Resources Management, the vision stated, “The State of Texas will lead in delivering a secure, digital government through well-designed, innovative technology solutions”. NITCO’s digital automation software solutions and services complement the State’s goals of: Secure IT Service Delivery; Advanced Data Management and Digital Services; and supporting Agile and Automated IT Strategies.

The Texas Department of Information Resources conducted a survey and found that Texas public sector agencies are in varying stages of their digital transformation. “In the spring of 2020, 49% of state-agency respondents to the Information Deployment Review (IRDR) reported they have no digital transformation practices or are in the initial stages, while 48% have developed or defined practices. Only three percent of state agencies describe their status as managed or optimized”. Source: 2020 IRDR

In 2021, the National Association of State CIOs (NACIO), reported the results of a survey that 74% of state CIOs “believe the biggest driver for state governments' need to digitize is to provide a better online experience for citizens. The COVID pandemic demanded a rapid response by the government to citizen needs. While a difficult time, it did provide a great opportunity to simplify and innovate”.

On its DIR contract DIR-CPO-4725, NITCO Inc. will address the needs of the public sector by offering clients both on-prem software solutions and Cloud-based digital automation products as a solution partner reseller and technology services provider. In addition, NITCO will be offering installation, configuration, maintenance, support, architectural assessment and design, business and technical consulting, and training services focusing on RPA (Robotic Process Automation) and AI (Artificial Intelligence) automation solutions under this contract. This Cooperative Contract will allow NITCO, Inc. to offer digital transformation serving Assistance Organizations, High Ed, K-12 Schools, Local Government, out of state public sector agencies, and the State of Texas agencies.

NITCO Inc., founding President and CEO, Chandra Sekhar Yatagiri, states, “We are grateful for this opportunity to offer our high-quality technology solutions to serve the public sector client base. We look forward to sharing our company values of delivering quality, being customer-focused, practicing, and recommending best practices, and being a trusted partner for our clients.
