  • BioSP Case Studies

Three case studies demonstrate how agencies around the world use Aware’s BioSP™ to process and share biometric data

Biometric search workflows require many processes across multiple systems, especially when several government agencies are exchanging biometric information between different countries. For example, enrolling fingerprints to a biometric database for law enforcement is a very different workflow than enrolling them into a civil database for immigration purposes. Even biometric systems that serve the same function can have different data formats. For example, a biometric search service provided by a U.S. federal law enforcement or border management agency might not have the same data formats as one in France, or even as one in another U.S. federal or state agency, [...]

  • Biometrics in Government - Addressing Vendor Lock-in

Addressing Vendor Lock-In in ABIS Systems | White Paper

“Vendor lock-in” is a term that describes when a technology vendor imposes switching costs upon their customer—intentionally or otherwise—to make it unattractive for them to replace their installed products. It’s done by designing and deploying a system in such a way that makes it exceedingly difficult, risky, or expensive to replace part or all of the system. The effect is that the vendor can earn a virtual monopoly within that account on future product and service revenue. The phenomenon is universal, but vendor lock-in has occurred in the biometrics realm, typically involving deployment of an AFIS/ABIS (automated fingerprint/biometric identification [...]
