Without the Information Systems Division, the college is almost paralyzed.
"There is also a professional service team that provides Data-Base solutions and software development solutions," said Tran, "and the entire department's responsibility for low voltage and multimedia in the college, and the building control system - a system that is responsible for monitoring all the infrastructure in place: Cameras, low voltage, water, electricity, etc. This is done with the help of a system of about 5,000 controllers spread throughout the college, and the information from the various sources reaches the city management system and enables efficient management in all aspects of operations".
"Every day in the college there are thousands of trainees and visitors, hundreds of faculty and employees, and tens of thousands of students each year in thousands of courses." There are thousands of end stations, a server farm containing 150 physical and virtual servers, a recovery farms that provide business continuity in the worlds of communications, Data Security and Wi-Fi, and the site operates three different communication networks.
It is not easy. The city management system GIV-CITY™ by GIV Solutions Ltd based on Infor EAM, manages all the processes in this police Academy, and in fact manages several types of organizations at the same time: management of the hotel and lodging of the students, catering, service; Management of a training/academic campus in logistic aspects: management of buildings and classrooms, management of equipment and resources, management of students with interfaces to the learning system; And, of course, managing the general organization and the Concession terms regulations and monitoring of it: It handels dozens of modules including budget management, purchasing, inventory, maintenance, human resources, service centers, SLA management and many more".
Efficiency and savings by implementing an innovative energy efficiency system.

The system was the flagship project of the college in 2018.

"Today we receive data on energy costs at any given moment, as well as information on faults, which is obtained into a designated application for the site and SMS for those responsible, not only in the form of simple data, but also in the type of faults: A certain electricity meter, an over-consumption of a boiler, and even a refrigerator whose door is open and loses cold, all on the internet, when the system's managers are able to handle some of the malfunctions from a distance."
"In addition, on the same basis, we receive, through interfaces and controllers, data on failures in the worlds of computing: the fall of electricity in the concentration of communication, security systems that do not work (such as fence cameras or fence sensors) and more".
"The system knows how to optimize the electrical operation of the electricity system automatically in the training area, according to a timetable that is automatically transferred between the training management system and the city management system, which is defined in advance - saving resources and considerable money," said Tran.
