Paris, October 14, 2010 – Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, has combined forces with Palantir Technologies, a leading provider of data integration, analysis and data protection. Palantir Technologies’ analytical platform is already in use throughout multiple public sector agencies in the US. It provides a powerful platform in the battle against terrorism, crime, fraud as well as the protection of civil liberties. This alliance will seek to bring an effective and user friendly data analysis platform to public sector organizations worldwide.
Capgemini’s experience in security strategy and technology integration, combined with Palantir’s data analysis infrastructure, has already allowed public security agencies in the US and Europe to manage ever-increasing volumes of data. It has enabled the conversion of data into real, actionable intelligence while maintaining the protection of civil liberties. The development of additional applications in the areas of public security, defence, intelligence and fraud detection will continue at Capgemini’s Centre of Excellence in the Netherlands. Capgemini and Palantir are currently working together to deliver a pilot which intends to help the UK Border Agency to better manage and analyze data in order to reduce and prevent illegal immigration.
“We’re delighted to work with a global integrator of Capgemini’s stature and benefit from its vast experience of working with public sector organizations. This experience, combined with our next generation server architecture, offers public security agencies a game-changing technology that can radically overhaul the way they assimilate and query the vast amounts of data from which they need to draw intelligence,” said Dr. Alexander Karp, Founder and CEO Palantir Technologies. “Together we offer a productized solution that will significantly enhance performance in terms of people, process, technology, organization, and intelligence -- gathering, sharing and using -- while maintaining compliance with data protection laws.”
“This alliance enables Capgemini and Palantir to help optimize the work of public security agencies in the battle against terrorism, crime, fraud and cyber security. As well as offering a step-change in the way they draw intelligence, the solution represents a significant cost saving against existing operations,” said Jaap Roos, Public Security Leader, Capgemini. “Working together, we are committed to helping intelligence, defence and law enforcement agencies optimize the management and analysis of real data, whilst responding to privacy and civil liberties protection laws.”
