Main Content

Flagship Solutions Group announces that, in conjunction with IBM, they will build a Blade Storage Solution Center (BSSC) at the National Center for Spectator Sport Safety and Security (NCS4), located at The University of Southern Mississippi.

The purpose of the BSSC in this location is to analyze and validate IBM technologies from an academic perspective, and to aggregate data from various Stadiums to establish best practices across like venues. This is an ideal combination of partners as Flagship Solutions Group is a leader in IBM IOC technologies and NCS4 is a leader in stadium security.  

“We are pleased to partner with Flagship Solutions Group, a leader in the area of Stadium security" said NCS4 director Dr. Lou Marciani.  "Our mission is to conduct innovative research, provide internationally recognized academic programs, enhance training capabilities and develop integrated security solutions and thus is a positive step in achieving our goals."

Earlier this year, Flagship was selected as a 2012 Beacon Award Winner for their Cloud Computing solution for the Miami Dolphins.  Flagship implemented a “Smarter Stadium” Intelligent Operations Center, which is acloud based solution.  It delivers a “Smarter Stadium” by integrating physical and digital infrastructure to provide a better fan experience focusing on premium features and services.  With a centralized integrated control panel, it provides an enterprise view of stadium systems and departments and aggregates both digital and physical systems.  

"We look forward to this exciting partnership with IBM and NCS4,” said Mark Wylie, CEO of Flagship. “ It is an exciting opportunity to work with industry leaders to meet the operational and technological needs of venue operators and security personnel at sports venues."
