The title of this podcast is “Federal Tech Podcast.” For many people, this evokes an image of stacks and stacks of servers in a windowless data center.
Today’s interview shows listeners how that data can be unlocked and put in the hands of front-line officers, whether they are federal or civilian.
Bob Griffin from Siren has been involved in bringing data to users for decades. During the interview, he presents a challenge that many encounter. In one example he gives, a person drives up to a warehouse in the middle of the night and sees an unexpected car.
The idea I to get as much information as you can in front of the officer so they can make a decision.
In years gone by, this has been done with desktop computers and limiting the ability of an officer to act. An officer may have to communicate with an office where someone may run a search.
Siren has been the leader in the unique ability to look at various data silos and search them for pertinent information.
In this interview, Siren announced a breakthrough that takes the traditional ability of a desktop and puts it in the hand of a mobile device the officer.
Finally, time is not wasted. An officer can approach a situation and be prepared with actionable insight and take appropriate action.
Finally, data that fulfills the role it was designed for, making burdensome tasks faster and easier for users.
