About Us

Space IT Bridge is focused on helping business leaders and IT decision makers understand emerging business opportunities delivered by a growing number of space-based satellite networks. The new SpaceIT site will track the business climate of this emerging and exciting market, including: standards debates, deployment case studies, new product launches, mergers and acquisitions, financial results and IPOs, and more.

This effort will help new space companies on how to leverage best practices in IT, such as open standards, open source, cloud computing, APIs, Big Data, analytics, and machine learning.  At the same time, Space IT Bridge will help the IT and consumer worlds recognize and embrace new opportunities offered by cubesats, imaging, and low earth orbit (LEO) satellite clouds.
