  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
