NICE Deploys its Investigate Digital Policing Solution on the Microsoft Azure Government Cloud Platform
Collaboration provides law enforcement agencies with a comprehensive, CJIS-compliant cloud solution for managing investigations and digital evidence
NICE Systems announced it is deploying the NICE Investigate digital policing solution on the Microsoft Azure Government cloud platform. The collaboration provides law enforcement agencies with a comprehensive Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS)-compliant cloud solution for managing investigations and digital evidence.
Police departments are being inundated by digital evidence from body cameras, CCTV, in-car video, interview recordings, crowd-sourced data (such as citizen tips, photos, and videos), ALPR, CAD, RMS, and other sources. All too often, this data is stored in silos, making it difficult for investigators to collect, review and correlate the information they need to build a case. As one of the industry’s most comprehensive, CJIS-compliant cloud-based solutions for managing investigations and digital evidence, NICE Investigate goes well beyond other digital investigation solutions in use today by streamlining the collection, analysis, and sharing of digital evidence, so investigators can piece together the ‘who, what, where, when, why’ of their investigations and close more cases faster.
Azure Government is the first hyperscale commercial infrastructure cloud platform contractually committed to meeting the CJIS security requirements for federal, state, and local governments. NICE’s collaboration with Microsoft allows law enforcement agencies to use this secure cloud platform to help safeguard digital evidence and better ensure the integrity of investigations. Utilizing a SaaS (Software as a Service) solution also helps eliminate the up-front hardware and resource costs associated with an on-premises option, and the cloud’s inherent scalability means NICE Investigate can more easily adjust to meet changing investigative workloads and evidence storage requirements.
“Digital policing initiatives are flooding police departments with valuable evidence that needs to be collected, stored, and analyzed in an efficient and timely manner,” said Chris Wooten, executive vice president, NICE Systems. ”Our collaboration with Microsoft Corp. means police departments can benefit from NICE Investigate’s comprehensive data collection, analysis, and collaboration capabilities in the secured, scalable, and cost-effective environment of the Microsoft Azure Government cloud.”
“Offering the NICE Investigate solution on the Microsoft Azure Government cloud platform reinforces our shared commitment to providing law enforcement the most advanced tools available to help them do their jobs and better protect the public,” said Michael Donlan, vice president, U.S. State and Local Government, Microsoft.
