SAP Helps Improve Situational Awareness for Public Safety Officials

By Jessica Binns, Contributing Editor — May 09, 2012

SAP AG launched its SAP Situation Awareness rapid-deployment solution for public sector with SAP HANA. Combining several innovations, the new offering provides real-time situational awareness to operational public safety and security officials who are on the ground dealing with major incidents, serious crime and emergencies.

SAP also announced the availability of a new cloud-based quick start for rapid-deployment solutions. The service provides a solution that customers can try with their own data before going live.

When Seconds Saves Lives, Speed Matters

Police and first responders face significant challenges daily, and at any given time need to act decisively based on available information. By improving the available information with the SAP Situational Awareness rapid-deployment solution for public sector with SAP HANA, they can sense, predict and act in real time.

SAP HANA is able to accommodate massive amounts of incoming public safety data and key events can be analyzed to better identity risks, threats and consequences. The SAP mobile platform delivers this information to police officers and first responders on the ground, helping them to better anticipate and respond to rapidly evolving situations on mobile devices.

SAP Rapid Deployment solutions offer customers out-of-the-box solutions and transparent costs. They consist of preconfigured software and fixed-scope implementation services. The solutions are designed for customers to go live in under 12 weeks, which helps lower the cost of implementation and speed time to value, while retaining the flexibility to extend the solution wherever needed.

New Cloud Service to Jump-Start SAP Rapid Deployment Solution Projects Now Available

To overcome hardware and infrastructure hurdles that often delay the start of projects, cloud-based quick start for rapid-deployment solutions allows customers to begin a project in the cloud with their own data. With this new service offering, projects can be accelerated before infrastructure and hardware investments have been made. Projects can be pre-assembled for evaluation and fine-tuning in the cloud. When the customer is ready, the project can be brought to the final production environment for a physical or virtualized on-premise set-up.
