We are delighted that Swan Island and ViaLogy will be deploying SPM to address the public safety stakeholders' priority requirement for improved and coordinated sensor monitoring in a networked environment
Portland, OR (PRWEB) August 14, 2008
In this uncertain and ever-changing world, business leaders and public safety stakeholders need rich, dynamic information for situational analysis, business intelligence and decision support. Today, Swan Island Networks Inc.,a recognized leader in the design and deployment of Web 2.0 enterprise systems, and ViaLogy PLC(LSE:VIY), a world leader in policy-driven, IP-based sensor networks, announce their new strategic partnership to benefit professionals with enterprise operations responsibilities, including facility security, infrastructure protection, employee safety, disaster response, and business continuity.
The new strategic partnership employs TIES®, Swan Island Networks' innovative software-as-a-service offering, and ViaLogy's SPM™ (Sensor Policy Manager™) to create an intelligent sensor monitoring and display network. The TIES personal dashboard presents ViaLogy's sophisticated sensor data as rich mapping overlays in the context of related breaking news feeds, open-source and proprietary data, geopolitical and emergency incident reports, severe weather alerts, and more. TIES is used to drive comprehensive situational awareness throughout an organization, or into a community of trust in which authorized users share information.
"Speed and diversity of information sources are critical to today's situational awareness," said Pete O'Dell, Founder/Director of Swan Island Networks. "With TIES, our customers create a 'virtual watch center' that allows them to monitor breaking events and changing conditions, and what effect those changing conditions will have on their core assets, such as people, facilities, pipelines and supply chains. The addition of ViaLogy into the TIES' watch center will strengthen our offering and provide more value to our customers."
The companies first worked together in Operation Golden Phoenix 08, a government-sponsored terrorism training event that involved over one hundred public and private organizations working together to dynamically respond to a fictional terrorist scenario in southern California. Swan Island Networks provided its TIES service to deliver a real-time Common Operating Picture of the event, including local San Diego information and incident alerting, and incorporated the ViaLogy sensor network that was aggregating data from participating locations, including airports, hospitals and marine facilities. Personalized management dashboards were delivered as a browser-based software-as-a-service (SaaS), with full functionality delivered on both PCs and mobile devices.
"We are delighted that Swan Island and ViaLogy will be deploying SPM to address the public safety stakeholders' priority requirement for improved and coordinated sensor monitoring in a networked environment," said Robert W. Dean, President and CEO of ViaLogy. "We offer turnkey networked sensor monitoring software. When integrated into our partner Swan Island's TIES environment, it provides unparalleled visual situational awareness of the dangerous and rapidly changing environment we constantly face. Golden Phoenix demonstrated the superb versatility of both companies' products in a challenging deployment, and we believe this will lead to the use of SPM and TIES for emergency responders, and private sector business operations, in cities nationwide--and major sales opportunities for the companies."
