Transforming the public sector
For the last 16 years, Mi-Corporation has distinguished itself in the public sector by creating paperless mobile solutions for public sector entities. Mi-Corporation is an innovative market leader that builds mission critical information solutions for the government & public sector. Mi-Corporation is using Azure as a platform for its leading IP, for which it has 10 patents. In 2015, Mi-Corporation was named Microsoft’s Public Sector: Government Partner of the Year.
Mi-Corporation has worked with public sector organizations, such as the USDA and New York University not only to overhaul antiquated processes, but also make a positive impact within underprivileged communities.
Simplifying daily operations without compromising security in the cloud
As industry moved toward a cloud-first, mobile-first world, Mi-Corporation knew they had to continue to differentiate from competitors. Mi-Corporation has distinguished itself from their competition by creating applications that simplify day-to-day operations for public sector entities without forcing them to compromise on important capabilities such as security.
Mi-Corporation’s IP is most appealing to the public sector due to its ease of use and adoptability. Public sector customers tend to be more attached to paper-based solutions and find it difficult to keep up with the latest technology. However, Mi-Corporation’s solutions enable customers to go paperless while minimally disrupting established processes via a paper-like user interface for mobile forms.
There are several customers that Mi-Corporation has worked with in the past that have seen dramatic increases in productivity, due to adopting the Mi-Corporation mobile forms. One of these is the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). The USDA carries out inspections to detect diseases like mad cow disease to ensure the safety of the food supply. The entire process is typically documented on many pages of paper in environmentally hostile conditions, making it difficult to capture timely and accurate data. Mi-Corporation worked with the USDA to enable their inspectors to more easily document findings in the field without drastically changing the process inspectors were used to.
Since Mi-Corporation uses Azure, a Windows Server backend, and SQL Server, their customers are able to scale easily, keeping up with the demands of their business. “There are a lot of things Azure just handles for you that our customers don’t have to handle anymore,” Dr. Greg Clary says, referring to Azure Storage and the ability to gather app metrics into a dashboard within Azure. “We’re leveraging Azure Database capability as well.”
