Local Government

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

Local agencies invest all their budget to maintain the service level infrastructure needed to support their communities. This leaves little to no room for technology updates or game-changing innovation.

It is becoming increasingly necessary to transform government services to keep pace with the community's rights and expectations.

Local governments are looking for ways to balance the conflicting priorities of tight budget management and service excellence.

  • Legacy databases are kept for compliance but workers with skills to support them are retiring.

  • Escalating cost of data retention is withholding resources that are needed to make necessary changes

Key Issues

  • Cannot invest in new technologies while the legacy license costs are in place
  • Cannot efficiently and reliably access and retrieve data stored in legacy silos
  • Cannot risk any loss of access to data during a transition
  • Cannot compromise data security

The DataNovata Solution

  • Replaces the legacy databases at a fraction of the cost of the original licenses, freeing up budget
  • 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 modernization process
  • Sits on a more secure digital platform for data retention management

Problem Solved

DataNovata releases local government bodies from their legacy license burdens so that they can reinvest into their budget and strengthen their digital infrastructure for better security and service delivery to their communities.

Public Safety

How Can DataNovata Help Security Agencies Modernize 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 licenses 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
