Management Technology 
HERNDON, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/13 --  Join Meridian Knowledge
Solutions and Brandon Hall Group for a free, one-hour webinar on
January 31, 2013, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. EST to learn how federal

agencies and the people they serve? 
Stacey Harris, vice president of Research & Advisory Services at
Brandon Hall Group, will lead a panel discussion on the changes and
future opportunities for government agencies with the following

--  Sean DuGuay, director, Business Development, CGI Federal Solutions
--  Terry Miller, COO of federal government operations, Visionary
    Integration Professionals
--  Geoff Perry, director of Software Development and Hosted Solutions,

Webinar takeaways will include:

--  Understand the fundamental elements of an integrated Federal HCM
--  Get examples of integrated federal solutions
