There is no debate that Public Safety and/or National Security (PS&NS) was, is, and always will be of paramount importance for any nation, and it requires a lot of coordination and intelligence driven action from agencies and people. There were times when collecting this kind of information and then collaborating to ensure proper intelligence is available to people who can effectively use it, required efforts beyond imagination.
With updates in technologies, systems, and better solutions, the task of collecting such information and data has become relatively easy. Consequently, there is an abundance of data being gathered and stored in different locations. Latest technologies, especially in Business Intelligence and analytics, ensure the ability to make sense of this data abundance and make more informed decisions.

Platform evangelization has been a concept that is used by major companies who would like to get a momentum in increasing their market share around the same time the platform is being developed. This companies like to think ahead and use available expertise and technology to evangelize either with the developer community to increase the adoption or with the consumer community to increase their market share drastically. While evangelizing with the developer community has been going on for a number of years, evangelizing with business consumers has been the latest trend in the market.
