Partners providing technology and expertise to regional, state, and federal agencies in support of information sharing initiatives
DUBLIN, Ohio, Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Battelle a global leader in science and technology, and Sypherlink, Inc., the leading provider of automated data mapping
software, today announced their partnership to provide knowledge management solutions to government agencies. Sypherlink's automated data mapping and rapid prototyping software, along with the company's rapid implementation methodology, are embedded within Battelle's Information Fusion Solution, enabling government agencies significant time and cost savings for deployment of critical national security initiatives.
"Today's defense and national security efforts require increasingly sophisticated methods of information sharing," said James Paat, Sypherlink president and CEO. "Agencies can no longer rely on the inefficient method of manually accessing data from many separate, disparate computer systems. They need one, holistic view of all available information to make real-time decisions. Our offering with Battelle provides an end-to-end solution for understanding, accessing, and analyzing information to enable these critical decisions."
"Sypherlink's unique, patented technology is at the core of our solution, providing the means to automate and accelerate much of the manual information integration process and a method for virtually centralizing data across many different sources," said Moses Kamai, Knowledge Management Practice Leader for Battelle's National Security Division.
Battelle is currently providing Information Fusion Solutions to national defense and state customers in the areas of law enforcement and chemical and biological defense.
Battelle has supported the national interest for more than 75 years, providing solutions to America's toughest technical and scientific challenges. Battelle's Information Fusion Solution enables local, state, and federal agencies to effectively and securely share information that is critical to reaching a common goal. Specifically it enables agencies to:
*Obtain an accurate view of the data available across various information
*Determine how the data across various information sources relates;
*Access all the data from a single, virtual data store, without altering
the original source systems;
*Discover valuable intelligence using information visualization analysis.
Sypherlink's Harvester and Exploratory Warehouse are embedded within the solution. Harvester is used to automate the mapping process-the necessary, but traditionally costly and error-prone, task of understanding where key relationships exist between data sources. Exploratory Warehouse is used to create the virtual data store which delivers a single view of data from multiple, disparate sources-while leaving source systems untouched.
Battelle is the world's largest independent research and development organization, with 20,000 employees in more than 120 locations worldwide, including five national laboratories Battelle manages or co-manages for the U.S. Department of Energy. Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, Battelle conducts $3.7 billion in R&D annually through contract research, laboratory management, and technology commercialization. Battelle provides innovative solutions to some of the world's most important problems including global climate change, sustainable energy technologies, high performance materials, next generation healthcare diagnostics and therapeutics, and advanced security solutions for people, infrastructure, and the nation. Battelle has a long history of developing successful commercial products in collaboration with its clients, ranging from products to fight diabetes, cancer, and heart disease to the development of the office copier machine (Xerox). As a non-profit charitable trust with an eye toward the future, Battelle actively supports and promotes science and math education.
