DELTEK buys INPUT for $60 mm

It's official- Deltek bought Input.

What does this mean?

The core business of Deltek is/was accounting and program management software, in which they remain a leader. But the field is much more crowded, and Microsoft has become very popular there.

So, being well-established in the government market, Deltek looked for growth in related areas.

Last year Deltek bought MY SBX which became GovWin. This is one of several acquisitions over the past 4-5 years.

With the purchase of Input, Deltek immediately becomes the leader in contract opportunity tracking.

While there are other players, notably Fed Sources, Onvia and some others, Deltek/Input is the biggest.

But in thw wings, trying to get a handle on the market, is Bloomberg and BGov...

I will have more on this soon, but in the meantime, the issue that many were thinking about... will Deltek host the annual holiday party???
