UNICOM Government, Inc. (UGI), formerly GTSI Corp., is an information technology solutions and services provider and has held a contract with OMNIA Partners since 2003. The cooperative contract provides access to UGI’s extensive IT partner network and information technology solutions, such as consulting, assessment, design, engineering, project management, support, and financial services.
Through OMNIA Partners, UNICOM Government (formerly GTSI) is responding to the business challenges of state and local government agencies with solutions that provide a wide breadth of technology products and professional services on a competitively solicited, publicly awarded cooperative contract.
UNICOM Government provides private cloud solutions, such as the Microsoft Azure Stack, that give customers the options and flexibility of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), virtualization, software defined networking (SDN), and software defined storage (SDS)- all of which use DevoOps methods and tools to automate deployment. This level of agility and innovation for on-premise environments accelerates cloud adoption.
Microsoft Azure Stack was carefully designed to offer truly consistent cloud services when and where you need them—whether that is on land, at sea, or airborne. Microsoft Azure Stack can be configured to operate connected to the internet or completely disconnected providing maximum flexibility in the use of the platform. This also allows for unique and unforeseen use cases. It is the only cloud computing platform to offer this flexibility of use, while maintaining application and operational consistency with the public cloud.
The importance of a complete public safety solution cannot be overstated. It’s become abundantly clear that ensuring the safety and security of people, infrastructures, and key assets is a critical issue that demands serious attention. This holds true for all organizations, regardless of size, sector, or geographical location.
The UGI array of solutions were developed to enable governments and organizations at every level to seamlessly integrate individual components into a complete consolidated view of the security infrastructure to effectively implement defense strategies. Whether it’s video surveillance, analytics, access control, intrusion detection, video management systems, security operations centers, or video storage technologies, each solution is designed, deployed, managed, and supported by UNICOM Government’s physical security experts.
The UNICOM Government public safety components include:
- Video analytics for evaluating the contents of video for specific data, behaviors, or events
