They also specialize in structuralizing scientific data and delivering enterprise class solutions using Open Source technologies.
“We partner closely with the teams to provide out-of-thebox and custom platforms that facilitate team collaboration and field data collection,” says Jackson. One of such events where Solea reached out to support was the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI), a program that was developed to restore the health of the Great Lakes region. NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) aimed at providing public access to its Great Lakes contaminant database. In order to support cleanup and restoration of areas, it was a challenge to deliver a solution within a very short time frame and fixed budget. To facilitate this effort, Solea consultants partnered with NOAA and deployed a solution consisting of a Portal website, data warehouse, custom GIS application, and business intelligence tools within a 30-day timeframe. The final solution efficiently provided access to the contaminant data collected by state and federal agencies throughout the region. “It’s worth repeating that the amount of progress and effort by Solea Solutions expended to accomplish this goal is nothing short of incredible,” asserts NOAA Business Lead.
Going forward, Solea looks at conducting and participating in industry and community events and to upgrade their tools and solutions, based on the client requirements. “We believe that our core values make up the recipe for a successful client service and our leadership team displays strong consultative skills, competency, and a willingness to learn, which would help us excel at being the best solution-provider in future,” assures Jackson.
