  3. 3. Driving Problem Disaster by definition is that which exceeds the capacity of local emergency services Multiple repositories of information arise rise during disaster due to multiple reasons  Unavailability of appropriate systems  Trust and relationship with organization  Capacity of organization to respond  Spontaneously out of frustration on progress Essential systems inter-operate for holistic and better response
  4. 4. Purpose of Interop Standards Objective in Crisis Response  Bring about effective information exchange during crisis to prevent siloed repositories that is of less value to response Outcomes if done successfully  Better efficiency in finding missing people especially in the critical 72 hours  Less time wasted do data re-entry  Better collaboration between relief agencies
  5. 5. Why we need crisis interop workshops? There are a lot of emerging standards in the crisis response domain Even when mature, the implementations of the standards can be immature Data exchange standards are not used frequently and only during a crisis event Interop workshops is a preparedness activity that provide a readiness between systems for data exchange during a crisis
  6. 6. Interop Workshops itself wont Resolve intro-organizational legal and trust issues in sharing dataHowever it will Help better encourage relationships and contact points between organizations Help develop and enhance standards when gaps exist
