Advances in big data analysis, BI, AI, VR and XR offer enormous possibilities for game changing improvements in the quality of emergency management.
But even on a much more modest level, can and will information technology contribute to the quality and speed of decision making in crisis management.
In addition it can serve as collective memory of teams and organisations and supports process and analytical thinking.
We have always considered (information) technology as a key factor to embed intrinsic quality and consistency in emergency & crisis management.
The complexity of crisis situations, the dynamics of changing conditions the conditionality of outcome of decisions and actions, require some instrument to assist the human brain.
CEMAC has supported for long crisis management by the use of Commercial of the Shelf tools, both for emergency planning, response as well as training and exercises,
and has realised a number of major projects in the field of ICT support for crisis management.
