Micron takes a new Web tack

Micron takes a new Web tack

The Web build-to-order trend for PCs and servers is leaving behind government resellers who can't add demonstrated value, says Harry B. Heisler, general manager of Micron Government Computer Systems Inc.

Heisler said he is on a mission to change Micron's image 'from a computer company to a computing company.' Micron has moved into enterprise-level Internet application hosting with its HostPro subscription computing service, which hosts 85,000 paying sites and 40,000 free sites. Some are for state and local jurisdictions, Heisler said, but none so far is federal.

Although he said Micron is 'not on the acquisition trail,' its parent company, Micron Technology Inc. of Boise, Idaho, last month acquired the Inacom Government Systems assets of Inacom Corp. of Alpharetta, Ga., for an undisclosed amount of cash. Inacom Government Systems of Fairfax, Va., has contracts with the Defense Finance and Accounting Service and the Veterans Affairs Department.
