Security Resource Management is designed to support processes necessary for homeland security, including border security, emergency preparedness and response, countermeasures, information analysis and external co-ordination, the software company said.
The technical framework for SAP's Security Resource Management software is the company's NetWeaver technology, which provides, among other things, systems interoperability across heterogeneous IT infrastructures.
The homeland security software offers specialised tools. For example, the border security and global trade services tools allow agencies to track and manage people, vessels, aircraft, vehicles and cargo with integrated business intelligence and alert features, while analysing business transactions for information about people or businesses on the government "watch" or "denied persons" lists.
Security Resource Management software also provides emergency response functionality that enables wireless access and incident tracking for first responders managing large-scale disaster recovery projects.
