Project Description

Project Brief

Project Harmony of Omaha, NE is part of a nationwide network of child advocacy centers. Their mission is to protect and support children, collaborate with professionals and engage the community in ending child abuse and neglect.

A crucial element of the case management process is the recording of forensic interviews. Project Harmony created a video management solution to promote efficiency, reduce the threat of human error and provide control of sensitive information.

To evaluate the architecture and security of their solution and to explore ways to provide a technology solution to the 800 child advocacy centers in the US, Project Harmony of Omaha, NE engaged with Giving Tech Labs.

This project was done thanks to the financial sponsoring of Giving Tech Labs

“How can cloud-computing, cyber-security, and mobile technologies help to increase the capacity of these child advocacy centers?”

Assessment

Before launching a new technology or venture, we evaluate nine different marketing, operations, monetization and/or technology dimensions on a scale of 0 to 100 and 70% of them must be at or above 70 to move forward. The following bars represent the assessment done in preparation for the incubation of VidaNyx

Market Need, Opp Size and Competition: 97%
Ease to code, pilot and take to market: 81%
IP and Data Value; Sustainability: 99%

Results

Giving Tech Labs conducted a preliminary assessment, including looking at the landscape, current system’s architecture, security, and scalability.

As a next step, a cloud-based solution will be developed in 2018 to serve the needs of the roughly 800 child advocacy centers in the US, at a fraction of the cost of existing technologies.

The solution will launch in the summer of 2018 as VidaNyx in homage to the life (“Vida”) being protected by Nyx, referenced in the poems of Orpheus as “the first principle from which all creation emerged;” also a key figure in Greek mythology.

VidaNyx will offer the child advocacy centers in the US with a cloud-based video management solution that addresses the needs of these centers, law enforcement, and the judicial system. It reduces the operating costs for the agencies, increases their case management capacity and decreases the threat of human error while providing control of sensitive information and protects the privacy of the parties involved much better than systems based on tapes, DVDs, DVRs, etc. cannot handle properly.

VidaNyx also wants to reduce children’s trauma by minimizing the retelling of their story to the different individuals that become part of their healing process, from licensed therapists to law enforcement and the judicial system.
