Olton to launch improved intelligence system
Abu Dhabi, February 24, 2011
UK-based Olton will launch its new ORA platform, a fully integrated intelligence monitoring and investigations system, which uses technologies from Microsoft and Dell at the ongoing Idex in Abu Dhabi.
The new ORA platform harnesses Microsoft’s intelligence framework search for intelligence-gathering to meet the growing demand for managing the information deluge that governments and corporates are facing.
It also brings together powerful hardware solutions from Dell that deliver a top-class, multi-level security solution.
“We are thrilled to be launching our ORA technology here at Idex, the world’s leading and most prestigious defence exhibition,” said Paul Manister, Olton founder.
Tim Bloechl, managing director for worldwide public safety and national security at Microsoft, said: “Microsoft works closely with partners such as Olton, who have a proven record of delivering Microsoft-based solutions, to meet the needs of government and commercial customers around the world.”
“In a world literally overflowing with information, Olton’s support of the Microsoft citizen safety architecture and the Microsoft intelligence framework enables a heightened ability to deliver precise intelligence assessments and respond in real time to security threats,” he added.
“We are working closely with the defence sector to offer open, capable and affordable solutions that enable our customers both locally and internationally to develop their IT systems to a higher and more efficient level,” said Dave Brooke, general manager for Dell Middle East.
“Cost savings without affecting the day-to-day operations of our clients is what we specialise in, taking full advantage of the latest technologies to help them focus on innovation with minimum technological effort,” he added.
ORA allows collection, analysis and reporting on data from ‘open sources’ and ‘closed sources’ of intelligence. It gives complete control to the analyst, making it a sovereign and comprehensive capability for better information, better analysis and better decisions.
Idex, which opened on February 20 at the Abu Dhabi national Exhibition Centre, is ending today (February 24). – TradeArabia News Service
