Polonious Analytics – a first look

This is a demonstration of our new Analytics capability, which is part of our 20.2 release.

This demonstration will show you how easy it is to create a useful and visually compelling dashboard specifically, in this case, to help with team coordination.

We will build this dashboard in 10 minutes, stopping here and there to explain some of the capabilities and concepts.

We believe your team can take on the task of building their own uniquely useful dashboard views into your case data.

So how does Analytics help your team?

Analytics give them the ability to:

  • Prove your team’s value to the organization.
  • To create greater efficiencies by analyzing performance.
  • To track Compliance by examining the data you can easily capture on compliance KPIs
  • To improve referrals to your unit by examining past cases referred vs case outcomes and savings.
  • To measure quality by creating dashboards to measure the quality of work our vendors and team are doing


Drag and drop, configure, run..

View, filter, list and then view cases.

So, what did we just see?

The dashboard build took around 10 minutes with stops to explain some of the concepts.

I think you will agree, it was easy to drag, drop and construct this dashboard.

We believe you can do this task now with no IT involvement required. This is a big saving in doing time, turnaround time and internal costs.

So what did we just see in terms of Polonious Analytics capability?

You can easily filter and select the case data you need to answer your questions.

There are a bunch of smart widgets to visualise your data as you need.

When you are using the dashboards, if you see something interesting, it’s very easy to drill down to that detail and see all cases in a list represented by that point of interest.

You can view a case straight out of that filtered list to see the full detail of what went on during that individual case.

What else can we do with this new capability? What are the other possibilities?

Rick Shepherd and Steve Epstein of Polonious  gave a metrics presentation at IASIU on the key areas analytics help a team such as yours. Proving Value, Improving Referrals, Creating Efficiencies, Measuring Quality and Compliance. All of these are now easy to create with Polonious Analytics..

We hope you enjoy our new 20.2 release. We really look forward to seeing what your team are able to put together with this new capability.

If you have any questions or improvement suggestions, we are very keen to hear from you. Thank you.

Polonious not vulnerable to ‘Java Zero Day Exploit’

Polonious not vulnerable to ‘Java Zero Day Exploit’

On Sunday, a new vulnerability was reported on the newswire relating to a Java vulnerability in the frequently used ‘commons-collection’ library. This reportedly affects java web-based applications world-wide.

Polonious’ development and security team reacted to this news within 24 hours.
The ‘commons-collection’ exploit allows an attack to vector directly into an IBM(tm) Websphere(tm) or JBOSS(tm) server running java applications on-line, exposing the server with command line access. This vulnerability is just as likely on Windows, OSX and Linux.
The security-trained senior engineers at Polonious have reviewed their popular PCMS (Polonious Case Management) product and declared it not vulnerable to this exploit. The library in question (commons-collection) is never used in a way that can cause this attack to succeed.

Whilst PCMS is not vulnerable to this attack, customers who choose to run IBM(tm) Websphere(tm) or Red Hat(tm) JBOSS(tm) for their Java web applications will need to review with their support contractors to ensure that they are not vulnerable. As a default, Polonious implement a hardened version of Apache Tomcat which is not vulnerable to this attack.

Polonious takes an active role in detecting, checking and removing any vulnerabilities reported on security feeds world-wide.

For further information on PCMS and Polonious, contact your local office in Australia or the USA.
