KMSG was pleased to sponsor the IPM Conference for yet another year. The conference was held at the Bethesda North Marriot Conference Center from November 16th through November 18th, 2015. It continues to be the main event of the year for showcasing the changes and new directions that earned value management and program management are taking. The IPM Conference is well known for being a great source of information on these topics for government programs and, more  recently, commercial projects.

KMSG is pleased to be a sponsor of the 2015 Integrated Program Management (IPM) Conference which is presented by the College of Performance Management (CPM), National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA), and International Cost Estimating and Analysis Association (ICEAA). The conference is being held at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center from November 16th through the 18th. This is KMSG's 7th year sponsoring the IPM Conference which is the premier conference for EVM professionals. In addition to our EVMS implementation, training, and support services; we have two new solutions which we will be presenting:

Proposal Pricing Support-  If you have deployed Deltek's Cobra software, chances are you implemented the solution to fulfill a government EVM reporting requirement. Having made this initial investment, wouldn't it be great if you could leverage that implementation to improve other areas of your organization? KMSG can assist with leveraging your EVMS investment to price your next proposal.

EVMSaaS-  We are also excited to present our unique and cost efficient solution, EVMS as a Service (EVMSaaS). The KMSG EVMSaaS solution utilizes leading EVM software applications, along with our proven EVMS architecture, and our experienced processes and resources to provide a completely outsourced solution. Our solution will enable your organization to focus on successfully executing projects and driving customer satisfaction.

Please stop by our Booth #13 at the IPM conference to discuss our innovative solutions.
