Applexus | February 20, 2023
Applexus, a technology-based company for business consultation and SAP services, has recently announced that it has secured an Investment and Growth Fund IGF grant from the Government of Alberta, establishing its business in Canada. Invest Alberta supported it, and Calgary Economic Development made key introductions for funding application processes.
This investment and expansion will help it to develop new technology solutions, hire and reach with better services. Calgary's graduates will be its team for a skilled workforce with exceptional infrastructure. Being a consulting firm, it spends a lot of money and time traveling to the client sites, so Calgary, an air travel hub, will offer convenient access to its clients from the US market.
Calgary is an affordable settlement place with a strong public education system, a high standard of living with diversity, importance to the quality of life, and being friendly with other communities. It will gain skilled professionals from other places than North America through Alberta's new immigration program for technology professionals.
CEO and Founder of Applexus, Sam Mathew, said, "The IGF grant will allow us to take our company to the next level, help strengthen our presence, expand our offerings, bring new jobs to the region, and positively impact the community. We're grateful for the support of the Government of Alberta as we work to build a stronger and more diverse economy for the state."

CEO of Invest Alberta, Rick Christiaanse, said, "Applexus is a welcome addition to Alberta's tech and innovation sector, and we are excited the company has chosen our province to establish its Canadian headquarters." He added, "This investment in Alberta will help support our local economy through the creation of 125 new jobs over five years while giving Applexus access to the skilled talent Alberta is known for so it can thrive in a rapidly growing sector. The support the company received from the Government of Alberta, Invest Alberta, and Calgary Economic Development positioned our province as a destination of choice and is a tangible example of Alberta's world-renowned 'make it happen attitude' when it comes to global investment."

Planview | March 08, 2023
On March 07, 2023, Planview, one of the leading platforms for connected work from portfolio planning to delivery, announced it achieved Impact Level 4 (IL4) authorization in partnership with a Planview-certified partner, Rise8. In addition, Planview's Value Stream Management (VSM) solution, Planview® Tasktop Viz, is integrated with Second Front Systems' Game Warden platform for authorization. With Authorization to Operate at IL4, Planview can deploy its VSM solution to agencies within the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community.
In an increasingly digital world, the federal government intensifies the demand to build and run software that helps its people and mission. However, as government agencies struggle to keep up with contemporary solutions, the pace of IT reforms and the impact of technology on operations is at a breaking point. As a result, innovative federal programs and agencies are implementing secure operating models to improve government service delivery.
In the Forrester Wave™: Value Stream Management Q4 2022 report by Sarah Morana, Chris Condo, and Kara Hartig, Planview was named a leader on December 6, 2022, after the company acquired Tasktop in the previous year.
CTO at Planview and Creator of the Flow Framework®, Mik Kersten, stated, “With our VSM solution authorized to operate at the federal level, leaders can now gain unprecedented visibility into transformation efforts. We are helping to close the digital divide between the public’s expectations of modern digital experiences and what technology services the federal government can offer when building on large, complex, and legacy systems.” He added, “Planview Tasktop Viz offers clear, simple visibility by enabling data-driven decisions, uncovering bottlenecks that result in delays in planning, and gaining actionable items upfront.”

Relativity | February 21, 2023
Relativity and Deloitte have recently announced that U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, has deployed the FedRAMP-authorized SaaS platform of Relativity called RelativityOne Government, as a cloud-based solution for Freedom of Information Act, FOIA, requests.
Relativity, a technological solutions provider for the legal sector, with Deloitte's litigation support and e-discovery services, helps the agency migrate to the RelativityOne Government platform. This migration will offer solutions related to flexibility, security, and extensibility of the cloud-driven data discovery product to the EPA, with the support of artificial intelligence.
The EPA has to process huge volumes of FOIA requests every year. This solution would assist EPA with the volume of FOIA requests, accelerating the processing speed and flexibility. It will handle litigation and investigation of the requests' varying sizes accurately without any tension of cybersecurity. It creates a repeatable and consistent approach to the problem, offering cost-effective, secure, and efficient output in the agency's processes.
Managing Director of Government Sales at Relativity, Doug Cowan, said, "Our advanced AI capabilities empower teams at the EPA to spend less time combing through mountains of data and more time collaborating and gleaning insights from analytics." He added, "The EPA is able to use the information to guide courses of action for their litigation matters or FOIA requests, which is additive to the litigation and e-discovery matters in which they were already leveraging RelativityOne Government. We look forward to seeing what the EPA will accomplish with a platform built exclusively for the cloud, and hope that it encourages other U.S. government agencies that are contemplating the use of SaaS solutions for their e-discovery work."
