Microsoft is joining with Motorola in an alliance to improve software applications for public safety and criminal justice customers, the companies said Tuesday.

The alliance will build on several Microsoft products including its .NET framework and its Windows Server System while Motorola will utilize its NetRMS Records Management System and its Motorola Computer Aided Dispatch Software.

“These applications,” they said in a statement, “are aimed at increasing the quality of information available to first responders, … automating the mission-critical functions for a single- or multi-agency and multi-jurisdictional public safety agency.”

Motorola said it will develop the applications using Visual Studio and .NET 2003. The Windows Server System software it will employ includes Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Biz Talk Server.

They said their partnership is aimed at providing a unified architectural approach to integration and information-sharing that complies with the security and interoperability requirements of various government information systems.
