Global industry leader in safety and security technology referenced in 2021 Verdantix report, providing buyers of critical event management (CEM) solutions with a review of innovation across the market
SYDNEY, Australia, 2 September 2021 – Noggin, a global industry leader in safety and security technology, today announced that it was referenced by independent research and advisory firm, Verdantix in its Smart Innovators: Critical Event Management report. The report helps buyers of enterprise critical event management (CEM) solutions understand how to leverage the latest innovation in the market to upgrade their strategies. The report also analyses how software providers are responding to novel operational challenges faced by businesses, such as dispersed workers and the demands of data privacy.
As the report notes, the threat landscape facing businesses has increased in both scale and severity. The need for effective CEM solutions – defined broadly as software and related services designed to manage institutions’ preparation, response, and recovery relating to events that impact continuity, operations, and safety – has grown against this backdrop of rising risk and novel threats.
As a result, innovative enterprise CEM solutions, such as Noggin, are investing in functionality to provide full end-to-end CEM, rather than just reactive CEM strategies. Of Noggin, specifically, Verdantix notes that the global industry leader in safety and security technology “is pursuing a strategy to combine all aspects of emergency and incident management – from CEM, to security and EHS functionality.”
Noggin launched its Noggin 2.0 platform, including dedicated critical event management solutions Noggin Crisis and Noggin Emergency, in 2019 to help organizations keep communities, workers, and assets safe and secure.
Following ISO 22398’s best practice framework, Noggin's Crisis Management software leverages plans and playbooks, smart workflows, and real-time dashboards and insights, to ensure better incident response, decision-making, and continuous improvement. Pre-configured crisis playbooks and checklists also allow quick activation and dispatch of crisis response teams. Meanwhile, Noggin’s Emergency Management software serves as a digital Emergency Operations Center, suited for governments, corporations, and non-profits alike.
“The COVID-19 crisis clarifies that while reactive CEM strategies might have been suitable for traditional crises, end-to-end CEM are required to address the present threat environment,” said James Boddam-Whetham, CEO at Noggin. “In rolling out and updating our Noggin product line, we focused on creating solutions that would give organizations not only that end-to-end CEM functionality but also the immediate return on investment of effective decision-making, quick oversight, streamlined collection of complex requirements, and faster, structured responses. We are proud, therefore, that Verdantix has noted our achievements as an innovator in the CEM space. We think the recognition only reinforces the value of our solution to customers.”
