Microsoft has just announced the launch of a new cloud-based criminal justice information system based on Dynamics CRM Online for the state of Illinois.
Called Offender-360, the new technology will replace an old system released in the ‘80s, Microsoft said in a press statement.
According to the same statement, Illinois authorities received a total of 20 projects for their new criminal justice information system, but Microsoft’s proved to be the most advanced and affordable choice.
“With guidance from Tribridge, 2012 Microsoft Dynamics State and Local Government Partner of the Year, the Illinois DOC was able to configure, develop and deploy the robust and flexible architecture of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online through trained and certified union members, significantly reducing the Offender-360 solution cost and deployment timeframe,” the press release reads.
Illinois has adopted a phased rollout of the new system, with Offender-360 expected to be accessed by 5,500 users by the summer of 2013.
