COBRA.net Data Aggregation Platform

Wholistic, future-proofed foundation for data integration

 

COBRA.net is a wholistic, real-time data source integration, exchange and sharing platform that allows an organization, agency or group of agencies to harness their data sources and focus them for meeting today's challenges involving big data.

Whether it is consortiums of law enforcement agencies with many isolated RMS databases, a fusion center needing to integrate data sources for one-stop search, or a state looking to mitigate social services fraud, COBRA.net forms the future-proofed foundation for an organization or consortium's data integration infrastructure.

 

Benefit Highlights:

 

See your entire data picture with one search

Stop wasting valuable time searching each of your numerous data sources separately. COBRA.net provides ONE, single view of any number of data sources, with one single sign-on.

Aggregate, share and exchange cross-system data in real-time

Whether you search two sources or two hundred, COBRA.net's powerful cross-system exchange allows any number of agencies to share and exchange information from any number of sources/systems in real-time.

Protect your data systems from obsolescence

Future-proof your data integration strategy by building an independent data foundation first. COBRA.net allows you to interchange the tools you use to access and query your data without disrupting the actual data foundation.  Read more about this data foundation independence here.

Conform to prevailing national sharing standards (NIEM, LEX, etc.)

COBRA.net natively works with prevailing data standards, including NIEM and LEX to allow data systems to communicate, exchange and share data.  Further, even if participating agencies have RMS or other data systems that are not compatible with such standards, COBRA.net still makes the data from all agencies interoperable with them.

Extend your foundation with best-of-breed tools: Inform analytics, dashboards, etc.

With COBRA.net's tool-agnostic nature, you can BYOT (Bring Your Own Tools) to make the cross-system data work for youFuel any number of external systems and third party tools, including visual analysis, real-time intel and dashboards SIMULTANEOUSLY with one unified data picture. Also feed upstream databases such as N-DEx, NIBRS, etc.

Fluid Data Model adaptable for any mission

COBRA.net adapts to meet the needs of any type of agency or organization (or group of agencies).  Whether your data involves criminals, medical patients, police incidents, information on government benefits, doctors, employees, healthcare providers, state licensing, intelligence or any other type of data, COBRA.net's data model will adjust to work with your mission.

Solution Components:

 

COBRA.net -- Core

The COBRA.net Core is the nexus of the COBRA.net solution.  All data aggregation, translation, synchronization, exchange, publications and queries are managed and brokered through the Core.  Through COBRA.net's open architecture that allows an organization to 'bolt on' whatever tools it needs to perform its data driven missions, the Core truly becomes the clearinghouse and foundation to an organization's data integration strategy.
