HUNTSVILLE, Ala., June 04, 2008 – Emergency services organizations now can rapidly analyze and convert vast amounts of law enforcement records and data into actionable information for enhanced decision-making with Intergraph’s new Business Intelligence for Public Safety solution suite.
In response to the demand for improved data visibility and reporting, Intergraph collaborated with Business Objects, an SAP company, the world’s leading provider of business performance optimization solutions, to combine the application specific data from Intergraph’s emergency incident response, planning and reporting solutions with Business Objects’ proven Business Intelligence platform, BusinessObjects™ XI.
