Combining our digital capabilities and agile methods will accelerate our ability to help clients harness the power of emerging digital technologies and rapid, predictable systems deployment for the federal government’s most complex challenges,” said David Moskovitz, Accenture Federal Services chief executive.

Recognized in 2014 as a contractor of the year by the Professional Services Council and the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce, Agilex provides agile IT development to the federal government.
