NEPTUNE, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Planet Associates Inc., the leading provider of Infrastructure Relationship Management (IRM) software and services for Enterprise Networks, has recently been awarded an ESI/SmartBUY BPA by the Department of the Navy for Planet IRM software and associated services. The ESI BPA award is part of the DoD Net-Centric Information Technology Asset Management (ITAM) initiative to gain visibility across IT assets purchased by the Department and leverage the data to enable smarter enterprise IT strategy and acquisition decisions.
