PATRIOT DATA SOLUTIONS GROUP
PDSG Integrates Data Sharing Product Portfolio
June 2, 2009 CARLSBAD, Calif.-- Patriot Scientific Corporation (OTC BB:PTSC) announced today that, as a result of its recent acquisition efforts and diversification of its business into the data and information sharing solutions market, its wholly owned subsidiary, Crossflo Systems, Inc., has formally changed its name to Patriot Data Solutions Group, Inc. The company, branded as PDSG, will unite Patriot's acquired entities and software technologies into a portfolio encompassing best-of-breed data-sharing and visualization technologies and services supported by subject matter experts who have broad expertise in healthcare, public safety, and justice. It is anticipated that additional acquisitions made to further enhance the current secured data-sharing product portfolio will also roll up under PDSG.
During the past year, Patriot Scientific has acquired several technologies, including its flagship Crossflo DataExchange® platform (CDX) which facilitates secure, standards-based data sharing among disparate data sources in mission-critical applications. This portfolio represents a proven solution for delivering some of the nation's earliest and most innovative data exchange projects, including one of the first interagency data-sharing initiatives incorporating the Global Justice XML Data Model (GJXDM) across multiple levels of local, state and federal government. "We believe this is a good time in the growth of the company to consolidate our solutions under a single brand to offer our customers our entire knowledge base, product lines and deep industry expertise in the sectors we serve," said Rick Goerner, Patriot Scientific's President and CEO. "The PDSG solutions help guide these mission-critical entities through the complexities of data-sharing initiatives so that these organizations can be better prepared to act on threats to our nation and to make better, more-informed decisions."
Name Change Reflects Market Focus "We believe PDSG best captures the focus of our current capabilities as well as our future plans to continue expanding in the data sharing market," said Renney Senn, PDSG's President. "There are multiple drivers for our expansion. Healthcare reform, for example, is being propelled by urgent needs for increased quality of medical care delivery and having immediate access to vital medical information at the point of care. Another driver is the increased focus on efficiency, cost and better information sharing among public safety agencies at all levels of government. PDSG's technologies will serve as critical enablers as these markets demand a new generation of cross-entity solutions that can significantly accelerate the time to value, reduce cost, and eliminate the disruption typical of new data-sharing initiatives."
The key to today's successful information-sharing models extends beyond technology. PDSG solutions are supported by industry-recognized experts. PDSG works with national law enforcement and justice standards bodies (IJIS) to deliver integration solutions that provide reusable business value to agencies and their applications. In addition, PDSG public safety experts have served in law enforcement; in street patrol, investigative, and supervisory roles; and as crime analysts and law-enforcement-specific information technology specialists. PDSG's health care experts are pioneers in hospital, medical practice and healthcare agency information sharing, and quality assessment technology.
