Local Government

How does DataNovata Help to Reduce IT Expense while Improving Access to Private Data History?

With budgets allocated to maintaining existing infrastructure, local agencies struggle to finance modernisation to support their increasingly sophisticated communities.

As technologies age out of use there is growing concern about the cost and security of maintaining access to data history.

Local governments are looking for a viable, economic solution that will mitigate risk and support data modernisation so that they can maintain data access and continue to serve their communities in an efficient and compliant manner.

DataNovata can help to balance the conflicting priorities of tight budget management and service excellence while maintaining total compliance.

  • Workers with skills to support legacy databases are retiring putting data access at risk.

  • Rising cost of legacy resources is bottlenecking funds needed for modernisation.

Key Issues

  • Legacy licence costs block financing for buying new technologies while in place
  • Siloed data is difficult to access and retrieve when needed
  • Modernisation carries the risk of losing data access during a transition
  • Data inertia may present risks to data security and compliance

The DataNovata Solution

  • Frees up budgets by replacing the legacy databases at a fraction of the cost of the original licences
  • Lets you view data from any database source directly through a web-enabled application platform
  • Provides continuous access to data at any point in the modernisation process
  • Sits on a more secure, compliant digital platform for data retention management

Public Safety

How Can DataNovata Help Security Agencies Modernise their Historic Data to Support Digital Initiatives and Requirements?

There has been a wave of technologies to bring greater transparency, efficiency and effectiveness to the important task of public safety. Additionally, regulations and data sharing standards such as NIEM have been put into place to improve and secure information transfer. However, historic data is not accessible through the new technologies and budgets are not equal across security agencies.

15 years on “only 37% of the U.S. public safety answering points having implemented NG911 capability” (source, Annual Report 2019, Multiple agencies need access to Case, Records & Digital Evidence systems in order to ensure public safety as well as operational transparency and oversight.

  • New technologies do not support the historic data, which is locked in inaccessible legacy data silos

  • Budgets are not equal across security agencies, nor are they allocated to costly data migrations

Key Issues

  • Due to the mix of multiple non-interoperable legacy systems, much of the data is lying dormant and inaccessible
  • Disparity in operational processes as well as technology buying patterns in the industry prevents easy data transfer between agencies and makes it difficult to comply with standards and regulations
  • Data migration for so much historic data is exorbitantly expensive but paying legacy licences when the data value is inaccessible drains funds unnecessarily
  • It is difficult to access data from any end-point which may be necessary in the field

DataNovata's Solution

  • DataNovata is a web-based data application platform where all data is easily accessible through a secure policy framework
  • DataNovata is compatible with any system and easily customised, making data easy to research, analyse and transfer with referential data integrity
  • Flexible licensing models suit different budgets and needs and with data secured without the need for mass migration, legacy can be decommissioned
