IDENTIFYING THE NEED
THERE IS NO “ONE STOP SHOPPING “ TOOL FOR DISASTER PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSE OUT THERE
INTEROPERABLE COMMUNICATIONS IS A PROBLEM
FITTING DIVERSE COMPNONENTS INTO AN ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE IS A PROBLEM
INTEGRATING DIFFERENT SOFTWARES INTO A SYSTEM IS A PROBLEM
SO WHAT’S OLD?
FIRST AND FOREMOST THIS IS NOT A NEW PRODUCT
THIS CURRENTLY USED BPM SOFTWARE IS IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN.
IT’S POWERFUL AND HAS GREAT RANGE
“ Old dog”
BPM SOFTWARE IS USED TO CONDUCT TRANSACTIONS, CREATE RESPONSES TO BUSINESS PROBLEMS, ACCOMMODATE THE HUGE AND DIVERSE NEEDS OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE, BANKING SYSTEMS, THE LARGEST BUSINESSES
NEW IDEA !
NO ONE HAS EVER USED A BPM TOOL TO ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM
SO WHAT’S SO NEW?
CAN BE ADAPTED AND CAN BE TAUGHT NEW TRICKS
CAN EASILY ACCOMMODATE A NEW CONFIGURATION AND INFORMATION TO RESPOND TO A “KATRINA” SIZE DISASTER IN SHORT ORDER
DON’T BELIEVE IT – LET US EXPLAIN
NEW INTEROPERABLE COMMS WITH ALL SYSTEMS
COMMUNICATIONS ARE INTEROPERABLE, INSTANTANEOUS, AND INCLUDE UP TO THE MOMENT INFORMATION WITH RULES APPLIED TO THE SYSTEM TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN
FAST ?…YOU BET!
IT IS NOT JUST FAST, IT’S A DYNAMIC “OF THE MOMENT
THE SYSTEM CAN BE PROACTIVE AND ADAPTIVE
TREACHEROUS TO MY STRESS LEVEL TO LEARN? DANGEROUS TO MY MENTAL HEALTH TO USE?
BPM IS A RULE GUIDED SYSTEM WHICH IS EASILY ADAPTED TO DISASTER RESPONSE POLICY GUIDELINES AND PARAMETERS APPLIED AS BUSINESS “RULES”
IT CAN RESIDE ON A LAPTOP……YOU SAY “NO WAY” – LET US SHOW YOU
CAN ACCOMMODATE AND/OR LINK TO ALL GUIDING POLICY DOCUMENTS
CAN CHANGE TO FIT NEW INCIDENT INFORMATION, LIKE INCIDENTS, ANCILLARY INCIDENTS
CAN BE CHANGED MANUALLY
CAN REACH AND IDENTIFY ALL RESOURCES
CAN GENERATE RESPONSE PLANS IN SECONDS
CAN OFFER INTEROPERABLE COMMUNICATIONS
CAN BE USED ANYWHERE
CAN ACCOMMODATE TO ANY ARCHITECTURE AND INTEGRATE TO ANY SYSTEM
We are presenting a new and truly innovative concept and approach to emergency preparedness and disaster recovery. Normally separate disciplines and often stovepipes, our approach combines business process management (BPM), enterprise architecture, and Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery using powerful BPM software as the cornerstone of the approach. This approach would empower business owners, Federal agencies, with the ability to pre-plan response type/ scenario requirements and resources (e.g. chemical , biological, explosions, weather, etc.) and to develop entirely new ones in real-time as a situation unfolds, offering these capabilities to any level or discipline within an organization or an entire operation. We use business rules and business processes as the guiding force for preparedness and response to provide a capability that can reside on a laptop and be web accessible on a global basis. end
