GovOS Acquires Advanced Workflow Technology from Seliom

GovOS | January 14, 2022

GovOS, a leading provider of digital transformation solutions for local governments, announced today it has acquired Seliom's advanced business process automation and workflow platform in an asset purchase transaction. Seliom technology will be integrated into the suite of GovOS solutions so that local governments can use the highly customizable workflow processing functionality to enhance their digital capabilities and make life easier for employees and citizens.

Seliom technology adds to the growing GovOS digital transformation platform with its elegant and detailed workflow automation capabilities. By replacing human-based workflows and rote decision-making, the product will effectively free government staff from routine, time-consuming tasks in lieu of tackling the more complex processes and decisions that require a human touch.

"The ever-evolving landscape of local government requires the public sector to be more effective and more efficient in providing services to constituents," said Kevin Lafeber, President, GovOS. "As such, we continually evaluate opportunities that make GovOS solutions more useful for our customers. Seliom's next-gen workflow platform was an obvious product fit that will immediately benefit agencies using GovOS technology to accelerate digital transformation and effect real change in their communities."

This new workflow functionality provides GovOS solutions with integrations to most popular ERP, CRM and HR systems, making it possible to maintain data continuity without replacing entire systems. The technology also enables validation of data/actions against a third-party data source, a next level solution integration requiring much less reliance on monolithic solutions.

"We liked that Seliom was specifically engineered to streamline standardized and dispersed operations that consume time better spent elsewhere," said Chachi Camejo, Senior Vice President of Product, GovOS. "With these capabilities fully integrated, government staff can further automate processes to get more done with the same resources."

GovOS workflow technology will become an integral part of the GovOS digital transformation platform, including Business Licensing, Online Civic Services, STR (Short-Term Rentals), Tax Filing, Records, Remote Applications, and much more.

Relativity Completes IRAP Assessment, Bringing its Secure Discovery and Investigations Cloud Solution to Australian Government Agencies

Relativity | March 03, 2022

Relativity, a global legal and compliance technology company, today announced it has completed the Infosec Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) assessment against 'PROTECTED' controls for its cloud offering, RelativityOne. The assessment supports higher standards for security postures in technology systems used by government agencies in Australia. Relativity completed its IRAP assessment after an extensive review process conducted by a certified third party. The process is designed to seek out security weaknesses against a comprehensive set of standard controls that support more secure cloud environments for government data classified up to PROTECTED. "The public sector in Australia is rapidly undergoing digital transformation with exponential adoption of SaaS services. The pivot provides enormous advantages to agencies and the public, however, requires SaaS providers to constantly ensure they are still fit for purpose in the face of the rapidly evolving threat landscape. Completing IRAP assessment reinforces Relativity's commitment to meet the rigorous demands placed on Australian government agencies and is another validation point for the robust security posture that impacts every organisation entrusting their data to RelativityOne." Georgia Foster, Managing Director at Relativity, APAC The achievement will support longstanding government agencies and Royal Commissions using Relativity on-premise to reap the benefits of Relativity's end-to-end cloud product, following suit from three major New Zealand regulators who moved to RelativityOne last year. Built on Microsoft Azure, RelativityOne helps government agencies deal with the particularly complex and unpredictable data that comes from federal litigation and investigations. Globally, Relativity has independently achieved ISO 27001:2013, SOC-2 Type II, and HIPAA compliance. RelativityOne's powerful end-to-end capabilities ensure government agencies can effectively and securely manage their highly sensitive and large data sets, while still able to meet arduous deadlines. "Relativity has utilised the speed, scale and security of Azure to create RelativityOne, a platform trusted by government departments and Royal Commissions," said Mark Leigh, General Manager, Public Sector, Microsoft ANZ. "The completion of their IRAP assessment demonstrates their commitment to providing solutions which have been independently verified to Australian government customers." "Our information security, risk and privacy program is a key pillar of our company and an ongoing pledge to our customers," said Amanda Fennell, CSO and CIO at Relativity. "Achieving the IRAP assessment is just another step in ensuring that our customers using RelativityOne are best equipped to tackle the diverse challenges of litigation, investigations and unstructured data requests facing government agencies." About Relativity Relativity makes software to help users organize data, discover the truth and act on it.

Intermap Technologies | December 20, 2021

Intermap Technologies , a global leader in geospatial content development and intelligence solutions, today announced a new prime contract with the U.S. Air Force to support the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) in its development of navigation solutions for GPS-denied environments.

The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) is exploring different approaches for absolute positioning and navigation in challenging environments to enable their multidomain operations. For most platforms, GPS is the sole source of PNT. Disruptions or corruptions in GPS signals can affect timely decision making, mission security, weapons systems, operations, and critical infrastructure. AFRL leads the discovery, development and integration of affordable warfighting technologies for air, space and cyberspace forces. Intermap is a pioneer and leads the industry in collecting, building, and utilizing global-scale and highly precise unstructured raw data, sourced from across the electromagnetic spectrum and extended to gridded or meshed 3D elevation models (DEMs). AFRL will leverage this unique capability and extensive archive, the world's largest, to advance its next generation of PNT systems. Under this prime contract, Intermap will provide relevant data, operational experience, applied technology, low-latency collection and processing capabilities, engineering and scientific support. "When operating in GPS-denied environments, Intermap leverages unique commercial capabilities and experience that can help the Air Force achieve desired effects where alternative navigation methods are required," said Patrick A. Blott, Intermap Chairman and CEO. "Under this new prime contract, Intermap will work with AFRL to help them advance the next generation of navigation systems supporting multidomain operations, long-range precision fires, force protection and maneuver." About Intermap Technologies Founded in 1997 and headquartered in Denver, Colorado, Intermap is a global leader in geospatial intelligence solutions.
