Connecting with Change: The Other Side of the Coin

Steven Cost HxGN LIVE Keynote

Mobility, the cloud, big data, and the Internet of Things are fundamentally changing how organizations operate and how people work. In an age of hyper connectivity, where there are no boundaries between physical and virtual worlds, some view these technologies as disruptive, creating challenges that far exceed the organizational value they intend to deliver.

At Intergraph SG&I, we see the other side of the coin. Cloud computing, data analysis tools, and mobile applications are transforming how our customers serve the needs of their citizens and customers. We view this transformation – and its challenges – as an opportunity to develop solutions that help our customers successfully harness these technologies, empowering them to make smarter decisions faster, deliver better services with fewer resources, and keep pace with an ever-evolving technology landscape.

Consider records management systems. They are fundamental to law enforcement agencies and crucial to managing operations, cases and investigations, and more. Yet many agencies use antiquated records management systems. Not only are they incompatible with the changes underway in enterprise IT, they are incompatible with how officers in the field work. Today’s officers and their supervisors need a solution that allows them to access and share information anywhere – whether from the desktop or on mobile devices. IT administrators need a comprehensive enterprise information management system that is easy to deploy, easy to manage, and easy for end-users.

Cloud, mobile and data analysis come together in Intergraph SG&I’s inPURSUIT WebRMS, which we are featuring during HxGN LIVE 2015. inPURSUIT WebRMS is a cloud-deployable, enterprise information management system that delivers quick access to data whenever and wherever needed. Scalable for single and multi-agency use, it serves all facets of law enforcement operations and administration. inPURSUIT WebRMS also features embedded interfacing and analytics capabilities, helping agencies effectively manage resources, identify important trends, and improve public safety.

While we are excited to launch inPURSUIT WebRMS for the global law enforcement community at HxGN LIVE this year, it is only one of many solutions for public safety agencies, utility companies and more that Intergraph SG&I will showcase during the conference. And, of course, we are only one of the many Hexagon brands on display.

Your participation at HxGN LIVE is invaluable. For those of you still on the fence, I encourage you to sign up today. It is an opportunity to meet our experts, learn about our technologies first-hand, receive hands-on training and create lasting connections with Hexagon and other attendees. For those who have already registered, I hope to see you around the conference.

Enjoy your time at HxGN LIVE!
