CCL's Global Partnership Director Alan McSharry shares his thoughts on the year as we head towards 2023.

The year is going far too quickly but that said it’s been very productive. Our reseller network continues to promote our products and services across the globe and with in-country support it ensures our customers have a local relationship with reach back to the UK if needed. In the last few weeks, we have signed up another two fantastic new partners, further extending our reach and representation across four continents.
The theme of the year though has been Forensic Automation – I’m not an economist but global economies are under some pressure resulting in clients finding new ways to increase productivity and asking us to do the same. We are fortunate to have a very large Digital Forensics lab here in Warwickshire and as a result have a creative workforce driving innovation. The ideas and suggestions falling out of live operational casework filter down to the development team resulting in a cycle of continuous development for all our products and services.
Just this past week we have had an international client fly over and spend a day putting Forensic Automation “Cascade” through its paces and early next year we will be taking Cascade into a large European country for evaluation.
The theme of continuous development is also embedded into the culture of our strategic partners at Cranfield University. Yesterday, academia, industry and clients came together to discuss change, seeking to improve this tripartite relationship. We welcome change as ultimately our community benefits by a more efficient justice system and CCL is proud to play its part.
A great man once said:
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
We will continue to listen, learn and contribute.
