Another day, another govtech merger

Gcom, a provider of software to state and local government agencies, is purchasing the data-analytics and business intelligence firm Qlarion, the companies announced Wednesday in the latest merger in a government technology market that’s undergoing a wave of consolidation. Under the terms of the deal, Qlarion will become the data arm of Gcom, which provides software for managing nutrition assistance programs and criminal justice data to agencies in at least 22 states. Qlarion is known for building Virginia’s Framework for Addiction Analysis and Community Transformation, or FAACT, an interagency platform for collecting and sharing data about opioid abuse, that was adapted last year to track the COVID-19 pandemic.
