Challenge: The Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board (RATB)
required the design, development, and operation of a complex, secure, and highly available
data analytics and financial transparency application presenting multiple data sources to
millions of constituents to meet a Congressionally mandated three-month milestone.
Solution: Smartronix delivered an innovative open Government solution for the redesign of the
Recovery.gov website. Utilizing advanced geospatial capabilities, business intelligence and
analysis, cloud technology, and social media integration, Recovery.gov 2.0 provides
unprecedented data access that enables the average American citizen to participate in the
transparency and accountability for the use of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)
stimulus funds. Recovery.gov 2.0 application was designed to scale and support a massively
consumed web presence accessed by over a million visitors per hour, provide rich geo-spatial
information, and meet high-availability and resiliency standards. The website received over
a dozen awards in recognition of its innovative, transformational, and transparent
capabilities. This marked the first Government-wide system to move to the Cloud.
