SmartProcure Launches New Solution to Lower Government Purchasing Costs

SmartProcure, LLC, announces the launch of an online information service that provides access to local, state, and federal government procurement data, enabling government agencies to make more efficient procurement decisions and save taxpayer dollars.

Local, state, and federal government agencies in the U.S. spend over $20 billion each day – which totals over $7 trillion dollars of goods and services annually. Combined these agencies represent the largest purchaser in the world. Yet only a very small percentage of procurement information is ever shared between these agencies and, as a result, government organizations rarely benefit from their enormous collective purchasing power.

SmartProcure enables government agencies to save time and money through unparalleled access and sharing of data. The proprietary system provides access to data from over 27 million purchase orders issued by 1500 government agencies. Access to the purchase order information combined with the system’s analytical and reporting functionalities provides agencies with the opportunity to save an estimated 10-25% on purchases of all goods and services. SmartProcure is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution (requiring no hardware or installation of software) that is provided free to government agencies.

“SmartProcure is a revolutionary service providing agencies the information they need to analyze and award procurements faster and more efficiently,” said Jeff Rubenstein, founder and CEO of SmartProcure. “Our solution transforms government purchase order data into useful information that assists agencies in making better acquisition decisions.”

SmartProcure enables agencies to identify prospective vendors, evaluate pricing parameters, confirm vendor performance, leverage existing contracts, and share lessons learned. Additionally, the system provides government agencies the ability to conduct in-depth analysis on procurement trends related to specific goods and services, regional and state acquisitions, vendor contract awards, and overall government spending.

“SmartProcure is the only solution that provides us with aggregated spend analysis across all levels of government (national, state, and local). It provides immediate information about what our vendors are charging us compared to other government agencies. SmartProcure has dramatically helped us leverage our negotiation power with our vendors, ultimately resulting in cost savings for the products and services we buy. Best of all, there is no cost or obligation to us for using the software. Conducting this type of in-depth research on our own would simply be cost and time prohibitive,” said David Santucci, Purchasing Manager for the City of Deerfield Beach (FL).

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
