  4. 4. IBM Cloud © 2015 IBM Corporation 4 Who are our customers in a Natural Disaster?  The first question in understanding how at technology or set of technologies can help you with a problem is to understand who the customers of the technology would be. In our case, these could include: – Victims of the Natural Disaster – First Responders – Family, Friends and Loved Ones of those affected – Utility Companies, Insurance Companies, Transport companies  The next set of questions come after you’ve identified your customers – How does this concept help them? – Will they be able to use it effectively? – How is it better than existing approaches?
