“RichTech provides an outstanding outlet for business leaders to meet, share best practices, promote the region, produce jobs and innovate and create,” said AISN CEO Jay Atkinson.

“Given AISN’s rapidly expanding business in central Virginia, becoming part of an influential, Richmond-based group of innovative, creative and technical professionals, whose mission it is to promote technology throughout Virginia, was compelling.”

Earlier this spring, AISN announced its selection by the Virginia Information Technologies Agency as one of three contracted suppliers chosen to offer IT hosting services to Virginia state agencies and other eligible public entities, including Virginia counties, cities, towns, educational institutions and public safety providers.

Over the next several years, AISN expects to guide its Virginia electronic government (eGov) customers through the hosting process, from strategic planning to implementation and beyond. Deepening its involvement at that level, the company will participate this week in the 2012 Commonwealth of Virginia’s Innovative Technology Symposium (COVITS), the state’s preeminent forum for collaboration and participation in government technology.
