September 2022

Across our nation, US and State Flags are lowered in Honor of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.  The flags will remain lowered until 8:00 AM the day following the Queen’s State Funeral.  The story of Queen Elizabeth’s life is absolutely amazing and if you have a chance it is really worth learning about. 

This Sunday, September 11th, it was 21 years ago that one of the greatest tragedies in American history hit close to home.  Like most of you, I vividly remember where I was and what I was doing the morning of September 11th.  We must never forget the attacks on innocence and the heroes who lost their lives while attempting to save others.

It is my deepest prayer that despite the differences and turmoil around us, we will unite and stand together in support of our common values and show respect for one another; something we all desperately want and need.   

This September Datamaxx also celebrates our 31st Anniversary. We are grateful for every member of the Datamaxx Team as well as each of our customers who together, make up the Datamaxx family. Thank you for allowing us to serve you these many years. Here’s to many more!

Our hearts are full!

Our hearts are full with thanksgiving as we look back over the last year and all of it’s challenges, we are reminded of how grateful we are for our loyal customers, business partners, and more importantly our awesome family of employees.

Wishing all of you a Peaceful and Happy Thanksgiving!

20th Anniversary of 9/11

For most of us, it’s hard to believe that it has already been 20 years since that fateful day.  Even though that much time has passed, we must never forget the victims, the families, survivors and the lasting consequences of 9/11 on individual lives and our great nation.  

I recall watching President Bush as he declared, “Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.”  In a reference to the eventual U.S. military response he declared, “We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them.”

I think we can all distinctly remember where we were that day as well as the days and months that followed.  We received urgent calls from the NYPD asking for assistance in getting their communications and systems online so they could work with rescue teams from the FDNY and other first responders.  Our mission had never been clearer and we have not deviated. Today is a constant reminder we must remain vigilant to secure the safety of our country.

Over a lifetime we all have memories of events that leave a profound impact on each of us.  We have a responsibility to pass these memories down – from generation to generation – and NEVER FORGET 9/11! Those that lost their lives and the families, friends, colleagues they left behind…deserve nothing less.  Today and every day, we pray for the many brave men and women who protect and serve us every day.  

Datamaxx Awarded Georgia Contract

Tallahassee, FL (April 2021) – Datamaxx Applied Technologies, Inc. (Datamaxx) is pleased to announce award of a competitive procurement with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) to replace the current Georgia Law Enforcement Message Switch, aka GLEMS, and related components. Datamaxx will replace the outdated LEMS with a new system designed to securely support the exchange of critical and confidential information between State of Georgia criminal and non-criminal justice agencies and other State and federal agencies via the Georgia Crime Information Center (GCIC) Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) network.

The GBI’s objective was to select a vendor that could support an open architecture system that uses asynchronous messaging, which allows for both message store and forward capabilities while allowing a secured connection to the system using a web-based interface. The Datamaxx Omnixx Enterprise Platform will provide a state-of-the-art message switch, zero-footprint client, and related interfaces that securely and seamlessly connect State of Georgia agencies to the GCIC CJIS network and provide access to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) National Crime Information Center (NCIC), the Interstate Identification Index (III), the International Justice and Public Safety Network (Nlets), as well as information systems of other vital agencies.

Datamaxx Director, Solutions Architecture, Donnie Lewis stated: “Datamaxx is excited at the opportunity to work with GBI to replace outdated technology and provide our modernized architecture and secure platform to all of the law enforcement agencies within the State of Georgia. The Omnixx Enterprise solution will serve GBI’s 10,000 users and over 3,000 agencies providing secure access to all FBI CJIS data sources as well as other international, state, tribal and territorial criminal justice and public safety data sources.”
