COLLABORATION IN CRISIS MANAGEMENT – LEARNING FROM THE TRANSPORTATION DOMAIN (Future Security conference, Sept. 2015)

Cross organizational collaboration is a well-developed standard way of working within crisis management. However, the underlying information management tools today don’t support integrated electronic information management in complex multi-organizational scenarios. This leads to a fragmentation of relevant information into pieces held by different stakeholders. Recently, the concept of the Common Information Space has been introduced as possible solution. This paper looks to the domain of Air Traffic Management where a similar problem was tackled by a concept called system wide information management. The paper starts with describing the operational context, the unresolved needs, and the derived requirements on possible solutions. Results and experiences from the Air Traffic Management domain are gathered and compared with current solution concepts from the public safety domain which are based on the idea of the Common Information Space. The paper concludes with learnings for the ongoing development in the public safety domain.
