NewWave and Index Analytics Create Unique Partnership in SBA Mentor-Protégé Program
Combining deep experience at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) with healthcare IT expertise, the team looks to provide next-generation, innovative solutions for the federal sector
NewWave Telecom & Technologies (NewWave) and Index Analytics (Index) announce that their Mentor-Protégé Agreement has been approved by the Small Business Administration (SBA), creating a unique partnership of two forward thinking health IT powerhouses. The SBA program is meant to “enhance the development of the protégé and encourage approved mentors to provide various forms of assistance to eligible All Small Mentor Protégé Program (ASMPP) participants to ensure contracting opportunity, experience and overall financial viability.” NewWave and Index Analytics both see the creation of this unique partnership as an opportunity to better provide leading-edge solutions to the federal government.
“The whole is greater than the sum of the parts,” says Nate Crochunis, NewWave COO. “We see Index as traveling a similar path as NewWave, working with data in similar ways and trying to solve similar engineering and services problems. We will learn from each other.”
Led by CEO Raghu Akkapeddi, the 8(a), HUBZone federal contractor Index has provided award-winning enterprise solutions to federal and state government agencies since 2012. With a team of experienced and dedicated personnel, Index’s services place them at the intersection of data, information technology, and program support. Index is sought after for their data modernization, data integration and visualization, Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) and cloud migration capabilities, and their unique Salesforce deployment and optimization expertise.
NewWave has become a leading Healthcare IT Solutions Firm headquartered in Elkridge, Maryland with locations across the U.S. For over 15 years, NewWave has merged innovation, creativity and compassion, empowering its clients to use technology in new ways as they solve problems for the greater good.
“Index is excited for the synergies this strategic partnership with NewWave will create, building on our culture of customer-focus and mutual respect. We will enhance our service offerings by learning from NewWave’s corporate processes and proven client-focused methodologies,” says Akkapeddi. “I’m looking forward to the inspiring possibilities that lie ahead.”
