It seems that Microsoft is becoming an important player when it comes to providing Big Brother software to American security forces. It turned out that Microsoft is a big backer of an outfit that sells surveillance tech to police departments in a weird money loop supporting the sale its snooping software.
The National Fusion Center Association offers fusion architecture, running Microsoft Fusion Core software. In the meantime, Fusion Centers were created in 2003-2007 under the American Department of Homeland Security and the Office of Justice Programs in the US Department of Justice and were designed to help data sharing between agencies like the CIA, FBI, DoJ, military, and the government. By the way, the Fusion Core Solution was jointly developed by Microsoft and Environmental Systems Research Institute.
Nevertheless, a recent Senate survey discovered that fusion centers were actually useless in addressing terrorism, but appeared to be very good in infringing the privacy and civil liberties of American people. The local media confirmed that Microsoft helps pay for fusion centers that hand the grants to police departments to be used for new surveillance technologies.
According to the reports, Microsoft is currently making a killing selling its Fusion Core Solution, which is able to automate the collection, intake, workflow management, collaborative analysis, data visualization, and dissemination of business-performance metrics among other features.
Frankly speaking, Microsoft isn’t the only company that funds Fusion Centers – they also get money from ESRI, Thomson-Reuters, Mutualink and other companies willing to cooperate with them. But industry experts believe that this is one of the ways that Microsoft is becoming the largest intelligence solution providers in the world.
