"For Memphis Police Department we delivered the fast and scalable Getac Veretos Evidence Management System that supports CJIS security policies. In many cases, data moves seamlessly from the officer and the vehicle directly to the Azure Government Cloud. This streamlined, secure hosted model eliminates many of the hidden costs and processes associated with running an internal network infrastructure."
