2013 was definitely a very fluid year for Xentity. Mostly, directly adjusting to the impacts of the Federal Government instability caused by sequester, shutdown, and lingering impacts of debt ceiling and fiscal cliff budget impacts. As a large part of Xentity services helps Federal clients look at longer term investment, when you have a year where it is hard for Federal programs look much beyond a few months, those services were definitely of lower utilization. It is a shame, from a citizen perspective, to know our Federal clients are limited in capability to improve, enhance, and become more efficient for the long term, but 2014 is already shaping to be looking more on focus for those goals.
That said, Xentity hit several milestones this year:
