With large global firms depending on suppliers and business partners in many locations around the world, it is pretty likely that all organizations will at some point be disrupted by some sort of crisis. And it is also pretty likely in this event that some aspect of IT will come into play — either as a source of or in response to the crisis.
What is IT’s role in both crisis prevention and crisis mitigation? What kinds of tools, applications, strategies, and infrastructures work best to facilitate crisis response?
The January 2011 Cutter IT Journal seeks to shed some light on this pressing issue. Proposals of interest are due 22 October. To respond, please visit http://www.cutter.com/content-and-analysis/journals-and-reports/cutter-it-journal/callforpapers03.html
