Frequently Asked Questions

Common questions on CORSYS and how it can benefit your operations

No, CORSYS is 100% hardware agnostic, allowing a customer to use any of their devices, regardless of brand. It is also developed to harness the use of the new WCO UFF2 unified x-ray file format for image viewing and enhancement capability. Additionally, 3rd-party software and apps can be added to the platform to suit the customer’s requirements. Customers can install and use applications developed internally or by other suppliers. The CORSYS architecture is based on an open, hardware-agnostic platform as a result of being built on the backbone of Microsoft Azure – in other words, developed on globally accepted technology, with government-level disaster recovery, that is positioned for large-scale enterprises.

CORSYS is designed to maximize the use of Microsoft Azure. Operating CORSYS in the Azure cloud brings significantly more benefits, as it would from other cloud-based offerings:  access to greater computing power, provided as an OpEx (no capital expense is required for hardware), it can provide instant/seamless updates, is scalable to an organizations size and needs – even as those needs change over time, can be accessed from anywhere, and provides centralized IT security and administration.

CORSYS has been developed specifically for B2G (Business to Government) operations, thanks to the power of Microsoft Azure, and is fully architected with the relevant data privacy and security protection as required for governmental use. This is augmented by a very robust, yet standardized cybersecurity and data privacy architecture, developed to adhere to most global cybersecurity requirements and standards.

Customers can choose between either our standard Microsoft Azure cloud or a “Cloud-in-a-Box” on premise approach based on Microsoft’s Azure Stack for data storage. We will offer CORSYS on a local premises “cloud-in-a-box” as part of the CORE release version, which is planned for 12-months after the initial MVP release.

Benefits include the predictability of operating expenses, no need for CapEx spending (which may make it easier for many organizations to purchase), and the ability to take advantage of financial rules that favor operating expenses (OpEx) over CapEx. Many organizations already procure their enterprise-wide IT and financial systems using an “as-a-Service” model, so purchasing CORSYS as a service will not be new to them.
