Greetings from CEO  
The software industry is changing and nowadays the public sector searches for software vendors wider than before. Traditional "small" software houses are now getting involved into bigger competitive biddings. There are probably many reasons for this but I can enumerate a few of them here.  
Database solutions  

Earlier big software companies had own expensive database solutions which weren't affordable for smaller software companies. For example Oracle, DB2 and so on.

Nowadays almost everyone, including large and small software houses use Microsoft SQL Server because it is a big and safe database solution and it supports a very large number of concurrent users. Because of SQL Server's very affordable pricing, it can be used by everyone.

Development environments  
Tools in software development are nowadays easier to manage than before and they can be used to quickly and efficiently develop new software. (RAD, Rapid Application Development) There isn't necessarily any need for as many developers as before to develop and update new software.  
Software support  

Small software houses can often provide better and more personal software support because for them, satisfaction of the customer is A and O.

Using modern technology it's possible to create so called how-to videos and other material which allows users to learn how to use software when there is time and need. How-to videos show the user how to accomplish various tasks and they can also be narrated to make it easy for users to understand the software better. This kind of studying extends traditional training and is also extremely cheap.

Interfaces between applications are mostly standardized, so customer can use different software vendors instead of just one.
