Fusion centers serve as local/regional hubs for collecting, managing and analyzing massive amounts of law enforcement data, with the responsibility for transforming that information into actionable intelligence.
The Microsoft Fusion Core Solution (FCS) has been built to support fusion centers. This simple-to-use, easily configurable set of tools can be leveraged by intelligence, law enforcement, and defense agencies to streamline the management and analysis of critical public safety data. Data is taken from disparate sources [from federal, state, local, and tribal governments, and from the private sector] and fused into one complete picture to enhance awareness, planning, prevention, and response to an incident.
With the Fusion Core Solution, government agencies can seamlessly move information from intake to analysis to dissemination in a multiple-agency, multilevel environment, while utilizing existing assets and integrating with domain-specific applications. This gives agencies the ability to take proactive action to prepare for and respond to crises and to counter potential threats and criminal activities.
