“In the past, a lot of public safety agencies were mainly trying to get applications to talk to each other,” Rissi says. “Now, we are seeing that doesn’t matter. What they need is to make sense of their data, because there’s so much of it that parsing through it is really tricky.”

At emergency services, fire and police departments alike, first responders gather data from countless disparate sources, but they lack an easy means to ingest and interpret it. They need a streamlined way to bring everything they’re collecting into a single view for rapid analysis, Rissi says. Generating these insights would help them make strong decisions in real time, dispatching the appropriate resources to each call for service.
