July 6, 2009 -- San Francisco and Toms River, NJ. MuseGlobal, the Smart Connector company and provider of award-winning content integration platforms worldwide, today announced a partnership with Specialty Systems, Inc., a company focusing on innovative information systems solutions to Federal, State and Local Government.
Specialty Systems is partnering with MuseGlobal to provide the systems integration expertise to engineer law enforcement and homeland security applications built on MuseGlobal's MuseConnect, which provides federated search and harvesting technologies, with a growing library of more than 6,000 source connectors.
Applications resulting from this partnership will incorporate a new breed of unified information access, integrating search results on one platform. Structured data from database sources; semi-structured data from spreadsheets, forms and XML sources; unstructured data from web sites, documents, email; and rich media such as images, video and audio information is accessed simultaneously from internal databases and external sources. This information is gathered on the fly, and unified for immediate presentation to the requestor.
These applications will give law enforcement agencies and intelligence personnel the most current information available to maximize public safety. The products and services resulting from this partnership will deliver a substantial improvement in the capability of any law enforcement and homeland security agency to proactively analyze and anticipate risks to the public.
Emil Kaunitz, CEO of Specialty Systems stated: "We at Specialty Systems look forward to working closely with local and state law enforcement, emergency management and homeland security organizations to empower their personnel with the information which maximizes their effectiveness. The combination of Specialty Systems and MuseGlobal in working with these organizations will deliver a new class of capability which helps enable their efforts to keep us safe."
