Opportunities, barriers and challenges for implementing electronic data and information sharing frameworks in organisational response to natural disasters (2005)
This paper presents a critical review and analysis of issues in implementing electronic data and information sharing frameworks in organizations involved in response activities during natural disasters. The latest technological advances, opportunities, barriers and challenges are identified and discussed. A case study in New Zealand examines the process and steps to conceive the electronic data and information framework. Also, the approach and involvement of roading authority organizations in conceiving the framework is investigated. Preliminary results show that considerable performance gains in response activities during natural disasters can be achieved if technology is employed according to organizations’ needs.
