Smartronix Awarded Treasury.gov Modernization Project
 

--Program to be deployed on the Cloud leveraging
Amazon Web Services and Microsoft SharePoint --
Hollywood, MD – 14 June 2010 – Smartronix is proud to announce the award of the Treasury.gov Modernization contract. Under this contract, Team Smartronix will support the modernization effort to create a new innovative Treasury.gov site and two co-hosted sites: FinancialStability.gov and MakingHomeAffordable.gov.

Team Smartronix brings together a visionary and creative group of industry experts in SharePoint, Cloud hosting and security, Web design, transparency, open government data, social collaboration, and emerging Web technologies. Most notably, the Team, consisting of Smartronix, Synteractive, TMP Government, and KPMG, with close collaboration from Amazon Web Services (AWS), was responsible for building Recovery.gov 2.0—the portal for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act hosted on AWS. In addition, this Team is at the forefront of building highly robust secure solutions with SharePoint 2010 on Cloud infrastructures.

The new design will support the communications and publishing requirements of Treasury, support the strategic initiatives of Treasury, and enable transparency and increased access to Treasury resources and assets. Leveraging a user-centric and task-based approach will enable Treasury.gov to support modern capabilities and features that are expected in a critical Web channel such as Treasury.gov, including social networking, Web 2.0 capabilities, robust Search options, and multi-media resources. Additionally, Team Smartronix will deliver foundational capabilities enabled by the powerful content management features of SharePoint 2010.

This solution will provide an unprecedented level of capabilities to Treasury. “Our goal is to help transform communications and collaboration across the Department of the Treasury and establish Treasury.gov, FinancialStability.gov, and MakingHomeAffordable.gov as the absolute leaders in Government 2.0 innovation,” says Smartronix Chief Technology Officer Robert Groat. “With support from leading technology vendors such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, and Akamai, Team Smartronix will be leveraging proven expertise in Web development, SharePoint 2010, and the AWS platform to successfully execute the program. We look forward to working closely with Treasury to implement their vision.”
