Myriad Technologies presented at the 2016 Military Communications and Information Systems Conference (MilCIS) for the fourth consecutive year, speaking on secure replication across domains, using SharePoint over great distances, and the benefits of Nintex.

Each year, the Canberra-based conference provides the opportunity for its approximately 1,300 attendees (namely industry professionals) to be informed, educated and kept up-to-date with the latest information systems developments.

This year, Myriad Technologies managing director Perry Smith and account manager Nathan Pearce kicked off the afternoon of day two with a presentation titled Secure Replication Across Domains.

The presentation discussed and demonstrated how it’s possible to replicate data across two domains even when split by location and differing levels of clearance, for example, classified versus top secret. Myriad Technologies has used SharePoint to reliably replicate data over a one-way network and proved how to overcome the challenge of distance and maintain clear division between domains while providing protection for sensitive environments.

Between keynote presentations, panel discussions and tutorials by other industry leaders such as Boeing Defence Australia and Panasonic Australia, Myriad Technologies followed their domain replication presentation with a demonstration on using SharePoint at sea.

The example employed was that of the Navy’s, which needed a secure and easy-to-use collaborative Information Management service available at sea.

"The true challenge is putting a set of warfighter services at sea, powered and operated on a Microsoft platform, of which SharePoint is a single component," Myriad Technologies managing director Perry Smith explained at the conference.

Difficult to deliver, but not impossible, Smith discussed the specific challenges of the job, highlighting the solutions involved in the end result. The session was of particular benefit to Navy Information Managers, technologists and records managers wanting to understand how the solution aligns back to the first principles review for defence.

The final presentation for the day covered Nintex. Presented by account manager Nathan Pearce, Myriad Technologies revealed how digitising and streamlining business processes with electronic workflows is arguably the best way to improve an organisation’s efficiency.

As a premier partner of Nintex, Myriad Technologies knows expertly how to integrate the platform into an organisation’s management system.
