Marietta Police Department Submits Data to FBI’s N-DEx Using Sypherlink’s N-DEx Appliance Solution

Local Police Department Completes Successful N-DEx Implementation in Less Than Sixty Days

DUBLIN, Ohio, May 12, 2011 – Sypherlink, Inc., a leading data integration software and NIEM conformance provider, announced that the Marietta Police Department (PD) in Marietta, Georgia, has successfully submitted data to the FBI’s N-DEx system using Sypherlink’s N-DEx Appliance.

Marietta PD enlisted Sypherlink to help avoid the complexities and custom coding typically involved with N-DEx implementations. Sypherlink implemented its N-DEx Appliance which serves as the interface from the agency’s OSSI records management system (RMS) to the FBI N-DEx system.

The N-DEx Appliance is a packaged software solution specifically designed to simplify, accelerate and lower the cost of N-DEx deployments. It offers pre-configured mappings from leading RMS applications and transmits N-DEx compliant XML messages to the FBI.

“We were extremely pleased with the speed and accuracy in which our N-DEx project was completed,” said Nick Miletic, Systems Manager for the City of Marietta. “It was clear that Sypherlink’s knowledge and experience with NIEM and N-DEx was vital to the success of our project.”

“Our goal in creating the N-DEx Appliance was to provide a turnkey solution for law enforcement agencies that address the challenges of submitting data to N-DEx,” explained James Paat, CEO of Sypherlink. “Implementations have traditionally been costly and known to take upwards of 4-8 months to complete. With the N-DEx Appliance, agencies can implement an off-the-shelf solution that can be deployed at a fraction of the time and cost.”

Sypherlink has been involved with the development and training of NIEM since its inception and has been actively promoting the use of N-DEx standards not only for the FBI’s system, but also for state and local needs. “As an industry partner with the FBI, we are committed to helping drive the success of the N-DEx program,” Paat stated.
