Gwinnett County, Georgia Chooses Agile Technologies and Metatomix for Integrated Justice Data Sharing

County Will Implement Metatomix Solution to Improve Efficiency and Streamline Data Sharing

DEDHAM, MA--(Marketwire - June 25, 2008) - Agile Technologies, LLC, a global consulting firm and system integrator servicing the public sector and Metatomix, Inc., a leading provider of semantic solutions to financial services, justice and public safety, manufacturing and life sciences organizations, today announced that Gwinnett County, Georgia, located thirty miles northeast of Atlanta, is implementing its Judicial Inquiry System (JIS), Judicial Data Exchange (JDX) and Criminal Investigation (CI) suite of products.

With a population of approximately 780,000, and a projected population of 1.2 million in 2010, Gwinnett County will use Agile Technologies to integrate the Metatomix technology with its current Criminal Justice Information System Community of Interest (CJIS COI) infrastructure to maximize justice data sharing. The integration will simplify current processes, facilitate data movement and govern data access. As a result, the county expects to systematically improve the operational efficiency of the existing criminal justice systems by streamlining information and data entry. The implementation will be executed by Agile Technologies out of the company's Atlanta office.

Metatomix JIS and JDX products will help the county to connect disparate data systems; provide a single user interface for searching all jurisdictions and agencies; automate warrant processing and other criminal justice information exchange processes; and create real-time access and improved accuracy of information. The company's CI product will provide significant time savings in investigating crimes, offering a full 360 degree view of criminal subjects and an overall advanced level of information sharing.

"After an extensive search, we concluded that the team of Agile Technologies and Metatomix offered the most proven experience in the justice industry as well as the range of technology solutions that best suited our needs," said Superior Court Judge Melodie Conner. "Agile Technologies and Metatomix's demonstrated commitment to and success with similar CJIS projects at the county and state level, as well as the implementation team's local presence, were both important factors in our decision. We look forward to this implementation because we are confident it will enable more effective, more efficient judicial processes in our county."

"Agile Technologies is excited about the opportunity to partner with Gwinnett County to implement a leading edge technology which will enable more efficient criminal justice sharing. Gwinnett has done an excellent job of outlining the specific goals of the project and setting the stage for success," said Agile Technologies CEO and Managing Partner Bill Freitag. "Today's announcement signifies an understanding by the County that a proven consulting partner focused on results is necessary to ensure the success of all critical projects. Agile Technologies' track record of successfully implementing innovative solutions in complex government projects across multiple agencies and departments will ensure the objectives are achieved and more efficient exchange of justice information will be realized."

"We are proud to partner with an innovative county like Gwinnett who is facing the challenges associated with being one of the fastest growing U.S. counties in the past 20 years. It is clear to us that the county realizes the importance and challenges of comprehensive judicial data management," said Metatomix President and CEO Jeff Dickerson. "Today's announcement further underscores their understanding of the critical roles proven technology can make to successful Criminal Justice Information Sharing (CJIS) projects. The Metatomix solutions solve real-world problems while setting the stage for use of semantic innovations to create future value within the county. As a whole, we look forward to a long standing and productive relationship."
