Welcome to EnvironMax. We are excited to present our company and the market opportunity in which we are deeply involved. So let’s set the stage.
“The Quest for Information” sets the context for all that we do. From the 70’s through the 90’s we have seen a evolution in what is demanded (regulatory) and what is expected (stakeholder) in managing environmental impact and hazardous materials. 9-11 brought a new issue of accountability (who and where) that makes data collection and reporting even more critical to our national safety. This IS the problem to be solved.
$122BB is a figure that demonstrates the attention and resources spent on the broad issue of “the environment”. The BTI report further estimates a pre-9-11 expenditure going on $6BB for IT related to environmental management. To expand on the impact of 9-11 alone, the Department of Homeland Security’s budget is $38BB this year. The Legislature and EPA, now headed by former Utah governor (and friend) is increasing the demand for hazardous material accountability. By any standard the value of this market and endeavor is huge.
EnvironMax functionality covers complete cradle-to-grave hazardous materials and waste tracking based on our “transaction management” paradigm. Its reporting capability covers all federal and state forms with single click efficiency. From pre-purchase authorization to barcoding to waste transfer manifest and Right to Know MSDS information, our software suite responds to business activities to create a Total Management System. The ad hoc report development capability further enhances the utility of the program.
5) the Data Warehouse Layer. This design facilities integration at all levels that give EnvironMax incredible power and gives customers incredible flexibility. Look Ahead Note - the five components are: Database Layer Application Layer XML Transport Layer Interface Layer Data Warehouse Layer
From Oracle Cycle Time: Weeks -> Days -> Minutes Processing: Batch -> Request/Reply -> Automated Data: Megabytes -> Terabytes -> Exabytes I/O: Punch Card -> Human -> Event Driven Access: Few People-> Many People -> Beyond People Connect the physical world of sensors and readers to the enterprise information architecture – it’s about the information Increase in Data and Event Volumes Increase in Data Sources Increase in Accessibility Decrease in Response Time Decrease Cost & Complexity
How do you integrate with existing systems? How do you add new services? Once you get past the physical layer of achieving read rate accuracy, it becomes a data management problem.
Oracle is proud to announce Oracle 10g – a new platform providing a responsive software infrastructure for grid computing.
There is a connection to other existing elements of information management that serve as a model for where we need to go. Supply Chain Management (SCM) with its intent “control and anticipate” material needs make extreme demands on the use and transfer of information. It can be done.
This capability is a model for Environmental Management Systems (EMS) that “measure and integrate” chemical data. Conceptually combined, SCM and EMS serve as the basis for “transaction management” with all the benefits of accurate chemical data for safety and security.
EnvironMax has been responding to these issues for over eight years. Our system (with strong user input) responds to a model that will meet the needs of chemical management and that can be readily connected to transportation information for greater control. Our “a-cubed” model has three important application demands: Account for materials, people and places. Aggregate data from everywhere. Assess the data to create useful information. Three slides follow to expand on each element.
ACCOUNT – account for the chemicals in a rich data environment tracking the chemicals, people that use them and processes/places they are used. Combined with MSDS information this tracking enables safe management and full accountability.
AGGREGATE – a web-based system enables diverse, disjointed and dispersed information to be centralized into shared databases. Without aggregated data, trends and small events would be impossible to see and allow terrorists to build unnoticed treats to our security.
ASSESS – with the information collected, rigorous methods can be put into place for assessing movement, quantities and events in a fashion to aid decision making and raise alerts to pre-defined indicators.
Thank you. We look forward to meeting with you in the Amethyst I room.
