Control Rooms in the Cloud

A Case Study of Cloud Control Room Solutions

Austerity’s easy wins have already been made within our emergency services.  Now only hard decisions remain.  If the exemplary service provided by these agencies is to continue, then traditional organisation models must change to fit a narrower economic profile.  This organisational transformation, must be supported by a digital transformation. A Digital Transformation (DT) is not necessarily about digital technology, but about the fact that technology, which is digital, allows people to solve their traditional problems and they prefer this digital solution to the old solution.  The transformation means that digital usages inherently enable new types of innovation and creativity, rather than simply enhance and support traditional method.   While our emergency services know this is a journey they will all have to take, some are already moving forward with alacrity.

Lincolnshire Police supported by G4S are already thought leaders in the adoption of technology to support their digital transformation.  They have embraced Mobile workflow management across the service and seen dramatic improvements in efficiency, effectiveness and staff wellbeing.  They have taken responsibility for the way information is reviewed, retained and disposed for the police forces in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and the City of London through collaboration around their records management systems.  This is delivering additional savings and improving the services to the public. 

They are now building on this success story by replacing their legacy control room applications, with a secure integrated cloud hosted Control Room Service.  This joint presentation between Lincolnshire Police and Motorola Solutions will cover the organisational and technical strategy developed by the chief officer group and how they see technology supporting their transformation.  It will then cover the cloud control room solution that will be delivered by Motorola Solutions as the foundation of a decade long partnership.
