Relying on Statistical Information Is Like Driving Your Car by Focusing on the Rear-View Mirror, Reacting Only to Past Events

Relying on Statistical Information
Is Like Driving Your Car by Focusing on the
Rear-View Mirror, Reacting Only to Past Events

By Nicholas Ashton, CEO/CIO, CommSmart Global Group

To some, reversing a car is a nightmare!  Trying to drive to your destination in that manner is a doomed consideration.

Think about statistical data, it has been collected through various means and placed in some sort of storage facility.  Today, it is a data silo, being piled and crammed inside, without being viewed, sorted or even really seeing a flash of the light of day.  Until that is, some analytic computation hits the database and it gets shuffled around months and years later.

There is always a time delay between an event’s occurrence and its perception.  Sometimes the delay maybe milliseconds.  Other times this delay may be a matter of months, years, or even longer.  Further, all observations, no matter how thorough, always to some degree contain errors, inaccuracies, and misrepresentations about what ‘really happened’.

Thus, public managers and policymakers attempt to control the future and tomorrow by making decisions in the present, today that is, based on error-ridden information about yesterday.

It is like driving a car while focusing only on the rear-view mirror, reacting only to past events.

That is what is happening globally with collected data that if it had been passed through precise analytic software with algorithmic computations, which were designed specifically for concise extractions, then it would be a whole different world of information and solutions

Importantly it is, by those using CommSmart Global Group, a LexisNexis Risk Solutions Partner.

Our analytical and predictive capabilities are second to none when combining local, national, global and massive public data.

Crime fighting is the perfect example.  All those daily incidents on which the information is within an RMS or CAD system can be placed in the direct hands of officers, detectives and administration staff with immediacy.  

Not sitting in some data silo waiting months and years to see the flickering light of day.  It will be working to reduce crime, catch criminals and protect the community of which law enforcement and public safety serves.

States, counties, and cities will have information at hand to improve revenues, especially taxation.  Dept. of Human Services or Division of Family Services, even Probation Services can understand all information in the palm of their hand on a Smartphone, Tablet or their Desktop. Current up-to-the-minute information that will save lives and make staff productive in their over complexed lives.

This is not some pipedream, it is the pure reality that is staring you right in the face.

We totally understand communications and how to enhance lives without being complex and speaking gobbledygook!  Yes, plain conversational English or whatever global language you understand.

CommSmart Global Group’s team are ‘real people' who understand life and all its failings, we are one of you.

Combine our Social media Interaction and you have a combined communications world at your fingertips.  Never has there been such a precise and concise capability available to government and corporate entities, until now.

CommSmart Global Group has harnessed the data for dissemination to those that securely can have access to improve the status of all.

It is productivity personified!

The Occurrence Book - Time to Move Into the Digital Age

The Occurrence Book 
Time to Move Into the Digital Age
by Nicholas Ashton, CEO/CIO, CommSmart Global Group

In modern usage, an occurrence book is a notebook or station book used by police, security guards and watchmen to document anything that happened during the hours they're on active duty (on patrol).

Still in use today in many countries.  Pen and paper at work in a ubiquitous manner. 

It is now the digital age, stop the resistance, the computer and proven programs are not your enemies.  In fact, you are your own worst enemy in progression and too many excuses why you should or shouldn't move forward.

Procrastination is a diabolical excuse and is like a viral illness.  I know you think that the computer is not safe in any shape or form.  It is when you have installed the appropriate security and maintain those standards and never take short cuts.

Ok, in the old days of a file room, one person had the key to the room and each filing cabinet. Hang on, how many times did you enter the room and found cabinets open?  Nothing has changed, we are dealing in a human world and we are terrible in making mistakes, leaving lights on, water running, windows and doors wide open.

This a new age and is about change and adaptability, which we at CommSmart Global Group, a LexisNexis Risk Solution Partner accomplish each and every day.


WE are in the NOW and 
KEEP YOU; in the KNOW…
