Norwegian Parliament Members Meet with IntraPoint in Silicon Valley
Members of the Norwegian Parliament’s Committee on Education, Research, and Church Affairs and the Norwegian Consulate visited NASA Ames in Silicon Valley on September 20, 2012.
During the visit at IntraPoint was a featured speaker to the Parliament members. Edward Erickson, IntraPoint’s VP of Solution & Business Development provided a company overview and an introduction to the Enterprise Resilience Solution (ERS). Additionally, Erickson outlined why IntraPoint opened an office in the NASA Ames Research Park. He cited three major reasons:
Intent to expand other Verticals and Geographies (US and Asia)
Leading Edge Software Development - Center of Silicon Valley
NASA has created a Center of Excellence for Crisis and Disaster Management
After the presentations by two Senior NASA officials and IntraPoint, the questions focused on the possible beneficial implications of an end to end Solution, like IntraPoint’s Enterprise Resiliency Solution might have had in dramatically lessoning the impact of an event such as the tragic attack on a youth political conference in Norway on July 22, 2011. Erickson responded that the Solution is designed to improve execution and communication in events such as these and that we are in the process of overlaying the events of that tragedy with our solution to determine the a data driven response to that exact question.
The two respective bodies were led by:
Marianne Aasen – Chair of the Norwegian Parliament Standing Committee on Education, Research, and Church Affairs
Sten Arne Rosnes - General Consul, Norwegian Consulate
