EarlyAlert Success Story

Future-Proofing Business Resilience Against All-Hazards 

EarlyAlert stands as a cornerstone of global resilience for businesses and organizations, in today’s relentlessly disruptive world. Their legacy spans decades of unparalleled experience in navigating real-world emergencies. This translates into proactive, industry-vetted crisis management solutions. Their comprehensive suite of services and products equips businesses to proactively mitigate risks and ensure seamless business continuity, in the face of any disruption, from natural disasters to man-made threats. 

The escalating frequency and intensity of disruptions, both natural and man-made, have rendered traditional crisis management approaches outdated in today’s volatile global business landscape. The need for unwavering resilience is paramount, with even a momentary delay in response potentially causing irreversible damage. Recognizing this critical shift, EarlyAlert moved to strengthen its competitive edge in the automated economy and ensure proactive global crisis management, by merging unparalleled expertise with cutting-edge, technology-driven solutions. To facilitate immediate response, accelerate recovery, and help businesses stay one step ahead of disruptions and emerge stronger. 

Through this innovative approach, EarlyAlert partnered with Cooperative Computing to address the most critical issues, listed below. 

Non-Integrated Legacy Systems 

EarlyAlert’s outdated ArcGIS system severely hampered its crisis response capabilities. Scattered processes lacked the connection to essential tools like situational awareness maps and real-time dashboards. This data siloing not only slowed down information gathering and analysis during emergencies but also limited client visibility into unfolding situations. The burden of manual data transfer and analysis between disconnected systems further wasted valuable time and resources, hindering EarlyAlert’s overall efficiency. 

Disparate Data Sources 

Disparate databases plagued EarlyAlert’s crisis management. Scattered data sources prevented a holistic view of unfolding situations, delayed decisions due to inconsistent information, and ultimately, inefficient resource allocation during critical events. 

Inefficient Processes 

EarlyAlert’s dependence on manual tasks like situational awareness and reporting crippled their ability to handle crises efficiently. This lack of automation led to slow responses, increased errors from manual data handling, and limited their capacity to serve a growing client base during critical situations. 

Lack of Automation 

EarlyAlert’s limited use of technology hindered their ability to achieve hyper-automation, a crucial element in proactive crisis management. Their reliance on an analog Resiliency Manager meant missed opportunities for automated threat detection, risk assessment, and response initiation. The lack of automation led to delayed mitigation efforts and an overall reactive approach, hindering their ability to stay ahead of disruptions. 

Mass Crisis Communication 

A reliable communication platform was a crucial missing piece in EarlyAlert’s crisis management arsenal. This lack of a central hub hampered information flow between them, clients, and internal teams. Delays in getting critical updates to everyone involved hindered coordinated responses, while internal collaboration also suffered, ultimately weakening EarlyAlert’s ability to manage crises effectively. 

Engaging Cooperative Computing 

Recognizing the limitations of their existing systems in a volatile global landscape, EarlyAlert sought to transform their crisis management offerings. Their objective was to deliver proactive, real-time services that empower businesses with unwavering resilience to navigate disruptions and accelerate growth within the automated economy. To achieve this ambitious vision, EarlyAlert adopted a tailored digital enablement strategy. This initiative focused on building a fully integrated and hyper-automated ecosystem, and the development of a robust, all-inclusive platform was identified as the cornerstone of this transformation aimed at centralizing operations and facilitating seamless communication. This is how Cooperative Computing helped them. 

Cooperative Computing initiated the process by conducting a thorough digital maturity assessment. This involved evaluating EarlyAlert’s organizational structure, processes, systems, technologies, and key performance indicators (KPIs). Through a rigorous analysis, gaps and areas for improvement were identified. This data-driven approach provided a clear roadmap for future digital enablement initiatives, ensuring EarlyAlert’s long-term agility in the face of evolving technological and market demands. 

Leveraging the established digital maturity roadmap, Cooperative Computing provided critical IT and DevOps support to streamline EarlyAlert’s operations. This pivotal service included managing server infrastructure and databases for optimal performance and data integrity. Additionally, a strategic data migration initiative was undertaken. Disparate legacy system data was carefully extracted, transformed, and transferred into a fully integrated ArcGIS environment. Facilitated by the implementation of ETL pipelines, this ensured seamless data flow and accessibility across the platform.  

By consolidating data and integrating systems, Cooperative Computing eliminated prior issues of fragmentation and manual processes. This paved the way for hyper-automation, a key element in proactive crisis management. Repetitive tasks like data analysis and report generation were automated, freeing up valuable human resources for strategic decision-making. Moreover, readily accessible and consolidated data empowered EarlyAlert with a data-driven approach, enabling them to react and respond to evolving threats with greater precision and efficiency. 

The culmination of Cooperative Computing’s efforts was the development of SmartSuite, a powerful platform designed to be the cornerstone of EarlyAlert’s proactive crisis management strategy. This all-inclusive solution facilitates a data-driven, hyper-automated, and single-window approach. SmartSuite empowers various functionalities: real-time situational awareness through integrated data visualizations and actionable insights, ensuring immediate and accurate client briefings during critical events.  

It incorporates a robust communication platform for seamless information dissemination during a crisis, enabling timely and coordinated responses between EarlyAlert, clients, and internal teams. Furthermore, a comprehensive Resiliency Manager module empowers users with effective resource allocation and management, establishing business continuity by safeguarding critical operations and minimizing disruption. Finally, an extensive Admin Module facilitates clients with a centralized command and control center, enabling them to navigate disruptions with confidence, make informed decisions, and ensure successful crisis resolution. 

By collaborating with Cooperative Computing, EarlyAlert successfully achieved its digital enablement goals. These improvements empowered EarlyAlert to reinforce business resilience and proactive crisis management against global disruptions and position itself for future growth in the automated economy.
