Below is a guest post and infographic from GovTribe, a DC startup that creates products that turn open government data into useful and understandable information. The hōrd iPhone app by GovTribe lets you understand the world of government contracting in real time.
Our latest release, hōrd 2.0, has way more data than our initial release. We spent the last six months building a completely new approach for consuming, processing, and making sense of government data from multiple sources. The iPhone app now provides insight and capability not available anywhere else. Our efforts have also given us pretty robust visibility into how the government behaves and where it allocates its resources. So we thought we'd share.
This post is the first in a series that GovTribe plans to publish. Our purpose is to find some signal in all that noisy data, and to provide some clear, interesting, and maybe even useful information about the world of federal government contracting.
We thought a good place to start, with just over a month left in fiscal year 2013, was a look back at what's been happening since October 1, 2012. Soon to come: Agency Insight. In this series we'll take a deeper look at individual agency activity. Stay tuned - and feedback is always appreciated.
