FedTechTicker: A New News Aggregation Engine For Federal Technology News

fedtechtickerlogoWe previously pointed out our technology focused RSS aggregation engine the Top Tech Ticker, which helps give you more signal than noise from the countless sources of information on technology news. With this post we provide more context on the federal technology news version of this capability, the Fed Tech Ticker.

CTOvision.com is based in the DC area and the majority of our team here have roots in the federal technology ecosystem. Federal technology and the tech community in this domain will always be a key focus for us. We serve a growing constituency in commercial enterprises, but federal technology is really our base.

So we have always sought to track news and information from every source on the federal technology world. It helps us in our writing here and also helps our consultancy Cognitio since our business requires us to track major movements in the federal world.

The Fed Tech Ticker is a tool we configured and integrated to help us better track key information in the federal domain. It is an RSS aggregator that consumes feeds of RSS from every government source that reliably reports on federal technology. It also consumes RSS feeds from federally focused news services that allow their reports to be disseminated that way.

The result is an always on, always up to date display of current federal technology news.


We already summarize many of the stories in this agregation engine in our reporting, but you can also consume the information directly on the FedTechTicker.com site. If you use RSS yourself you can consume the overall aggregated RSS feed there.  You can also create a login into the service to better tailor stories to your interests and create new RSS feeds for further repurposing.

Find the application at FedTechTicker.com

This service also drives the most up to date Twitter account on federal technology news at @FedTicker
