South Wales Police has implemented an information management system to break down the barriers between operational units.
The force went to Atos Origin to roll out the system, which is designed to allow users to get a response to enquiries must faster via a single source.
"The project has delivered on all our requirements, on time and to budget," said chief superintendent Richard Lewis of South Wales Police, responsible for the force's Zenith RMS change management project.
Lewis said, "We have reliably transferred years of key intelligence information from a variety of legacy systems, and now have access to one reliable and up-to-date intelligence source.
"It will undoubtedly prove itself to be invaluable in the fight against crime, as well as substantially reducing the effort involved in performance management reporting," he said.
Using information management software from SAS, Atos Origin delivered an end-to-end solution including a Police Corporate Data Model-based data warehouse and reporting tools.
This included managing the data cleansing, back record conversion and then the transfer of accurate and non-duplicated information from the old operational systems to the new integrated system - Niche RMS.
