NJVC Demos Cloud-Based Disaster Mgmt Portal; Kevin Jackson Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

kevin JacksonNJVC on Thursday demonstrated a cloud-based platform designed to provide organizations with an online communications tool during emergency situations.

The presentation held at the Gannett headquarters in McLean, Va. is part of a project to help the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency determine how to use information technology systems for disaster response activities, NJVC said Thursday.

NJVC designed the Cloudcuity Brokerage and Management Portal as an interoperable and secure network with data exchange, sharing and storage features.

“Migrating to the cloud provides for the deployment of complex IT environment in hours instead of days,” said Kevin Jackson, NJVC vice president and general manager of cloud services.

NJVC developed the portal through a geospatial community cloud project.

The Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium organized the GCC demo project for the NGA, seeking to conceptualize an international response during times of emergency such as the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.

NJVC used the Cloudcuity Brokerage and Management Portal for the NCOIC’s disaster management applications of the NCOIC in the second phase of the project.

Nearly 200 executives and representatives from the NGA and other international government agencies attended the demonstration.
