    In this session we will discuss how state and local government organizations can create modern cloud applications in Microsoft Azure. Learn how you can help modernize your agency and the services you deliver to citizens using:
    •Devices that are sensors, sensor gateways or IoT devices that are publishing events to Event Hub either directly or using Microsoft IoT Hub SDK
    •Gateways - a logical component that groups processing, management of event processors
    •Event processor routes and device actors - Device Actors are chained with various other actor types that are responsible for aggregating, storing, analysis and reporting on device events

    Key takeaways:
    •Initiate a project using Visual Studio Online
    •How an IoT pattern can be used in Azure IoT Hub using a presentation and references to real tenants.
  • Boise Police Department Builds a Better Network for Less Boise Police Department Builds a Better Network for Less The Boise Police Department's IT Project Team, Cradlepoint Recorded: Aug 12 2015 30 mins
    This new series of webinars focuses on our customer’s experience and their success. Learn from your peers best practices and innovative approaches for creating dynamic distributed networks.

    CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT: BOISE, ID POLICE DEPARTMENT

    The network technology inside Boise Police Department’s cruiser fleet was outdated, expensive, and difficult to maintain. Deputy Chief of Operations, Eugene Smith had a forward-thinking vision to upgrade the network to enable officers to spend more time patrolling, adapt to evolving technology, and reduce the amount of IT resources needed to maintain the network—all in the face of an unmoving budget.

    Join Cradlepoint and the Boise Police Department to learn more about the department’s police cruiser technology refresh and how Cradlepoint has enabled in-vehicle connectivity so the Boise officers can protect and serve.

    Attendees will learn how:
    •The Boise PD implemented a better solution for its fleet of cruisers and saved taxpayer dollars in the face of an unmoving budget
    •This solution makes the officers safer in their vehicles
    •To reduce man-hours for firmware upgrades and fixes
    •This solution increases officer satisfaction and productivity

    “We needed to lower our costs and were looking for the best solution for our officers. Sometimes you follow best practices and sometimes you have to make them,” ~Deputy Chief Eugene Smith, Boise PD
  • Building a Resilient Continuity Community Building a Resilient Continuity Community Eric Kretz, Director, Continuity of Operations (COOP) Division, National Continuity Programs (NCP) Recorded: Feb 12 2015 49 mins
    Continuity responsibility and planning should not be a separate and compartmentalized function performed by independent cells of a few planners in each organization. Organizations must fully integrate continuity into all aspects of an organization’s daily operations, thus creating a “culture of continuity.”

    The COOP presentation will provide an understanding of Continuity and Continuity of Operations, explain the importance of a viable Continuity capability, and emphasize the need for a viable Continuity capability in all organizations.

    In addition to providing an overview of Continuity of Operations, the COOP presentation will also:

    - Educate Federal, State, territorial, tribal, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations, and emergency management practitioners on the importance of integrating Continuity into daily operations, functions, plans, and mission areas.
    - Emphasize the Federal Government’s Policy requiring Federal agencies to be prepared for unpredictable threats such as earthquakes, accidents, sabotage, and terrorism.
    - Discuss the importance for State, territorial, tribal, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations to be prepared for unpredictable disruption of business operations.
    - Provide States, territories, tribes, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations, and businesses with assistance, guidance, knowledge, networking, resources, and tools needed to succeed.
