Knowledge Computing Corp. (KCC), maker of Coplink, acquired i2, maker of Analyst's Notebook, in July. The result is a powerful combination of Coplink's criminal identity database software with i2's proven crime analysis and investigative tools. Using Coplink, officers can tear through the veil of aliases used by criminals and even find their associates. Now the results can be seamlessly plugged into i2's Analyst's Notebook to close cases. The new Coplink has so many features that we can only scratch the surface in this roundup, but some of the most exciting include: facial recognition, real-time crime monitoring, automated notification, suspicious activity monitoring, and compstat analysis. There's even a mobile version.
