For those of you keeping score at home, it has indeed been quite a while since last you heard from the GovTribe team. Not to fear, we have been working hard on our latest release: hōrd version 2.0. We could not be more excited with the results and think you will enjoy the improved capabilities. For the skimmers out there, major improvements include the following:
As we discussed a few weeks back, GovTribe and Monitor Deloitte have been working together on a strategy competition of sorts. Check out this post for the full details.
As some of you may know, the founders of GovTribe spent a good chunk of their professional lives consulting for Deloitte. In fact, some of our experiences there helped to shape the vision for what GovTribe is today. We keep in frequent contact with our former colleagues as many of them have transitioned into current users of hōrd. Rodrigo Ortiz, a Specialist Leader in Deloitte's Federal Government Practice had this to say about hōrd.
The folks at The Open Data Institute were kind enough to let our CEO ramble a bit on their blog. As you know we are a big fan of open data and ODI is one of the major advocates in this space. Take a look and enjoy!
We are proud to announce that our 1.1.0 release of hōrd is live in the App Store, filled with 10 years of DOS and MCC data. Additionally, we rolled a few UI tweaks, some performance improvements, and the ever-popular bug fixes. Give it a go an let us know what you think. More agencies coming soon!
We were stoked to find out today that we have been selected for the upcoming DC Tech Cocktail Startup Showcase. The gig is on the 28th of Feb at 1776 and we are all super jazz hands about getting to throw down about hōrd.
A friend of mine passed along an interesting blog post by Chris Dixon - notable internet technologist and entrepreneur. The post is about the process of technological revolution, and how it occurs in cycles of installation and deployment. Within those macro phases are iterations of entrepreneurial activity moving further up the stack as technologies mature and enjoy mass adoption.
Sure...this is a pretty lame, obscure, and generic thought. However, in the increasingly competitive world of government contracting, it is a reality. Whether you're seeing sinking margins because of the competition, the looming sequestration, or a rough patch of lost opportunities, the concept of "less" is staring you dead in the eye. One of the reasons we built hōrd is to help you defiantly stare back.
GovTribe believes in the power of open government data. In fact, we built our entire business on it. However, as we continue to expand our data sources to deliver the right information to you, there can be bumps in the road. Since we expect transparency from the government, it is only fair we provide a level of transparency into our operations.
