Future enhancements

Where can we go from here?

Future Enhancements

Not only

  • Productivity improvements via HOLMES 2

    But also help key challenges in force

  • Data sharing and consistency

  • Intelligence

  • Single points of entry

IDOL Seminar October 2006


Technology saving time

Technology Saving Time

What if you could

  • Export your search results to analysis tools

  • Query once and be notified of any results matching your search for the life of your investigation

  • Search across Casualty Bureau AND Incident Room

  • Retrieve matches from every incident in your system

IDOL Seminar October 2006


Data sharing

Data Sharing

Common data standards for Force applications

  • HOLMES 2 can export data from IDOL in the police standard format

  • PITO CorDM or “CRISP” schema

  • Allows different applications to share and utilise the information held within HOLMES 2

IDOL Seminar October 2006

Intelligence

National HOLMES 2 search facility

  • Single repository collates data from all Forces

  • Business rules applied before data transfer

  • Simple interface based on Casweb/HVM solution

  • Allows secure querying of all data sent to the central repository

IDOL Seminar October 2006


Intelligence1

Retrieve information from multiple sources through IDOL

Search many repositories with one query in a single view

Make better use of the data stored on Force systems

Use IDOL pattern matching to cluster results in logical groups

Intelligence

Access to disparate data sources through a single interface

IDOL Seminar October 2006

Interfacing does not stop with data exporting

Exhibits packages to securely send data to HOLMES 2 and store in exhibits index. This reduces re-keying of information saving time

Documents can also be securely imported

Other systems can be catered for to utilise the framework to populate HOLMES 2

Single Point Of Entry

Interfacing Does Not Stop With Data Exporting

Version 11 framework allows
