Abstract

Communication and information processes are playing an essential role in Disaster Management. Accurate information at the right time and at the right place can save lives. Nowadays, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can significantly lower processing times between involved parties and increase information richness and reach. ICT Governance methods and frameworks are proven tools to manage ICT in commercially driven organizations. Clear responsibilities, optimized ICT portfolios, strategic alignment, transparent risk assessment, maturity models and managed services are the key factors for a successful and effective ICT implementation to support and promote different business models. However, it appears as these factors have been neglected in emergency management organizations.
