WHAT THEY ARE
A disadvantaged platform is any group, or person, who cannot identify, retrieve or otherwise access the information they require to prosecute their business in a timely or responsive manner.
WHY THEY HAPPEN
The disadvantage may be as a result of information overload, the inability to download information adequately or limited bandwidth. Disadvantaged platforms will include large businesses, military units, particularly at the front-line, and emergency services responding to events.
Their needs for which they require solutions must be addressed as a complex set of technical problems:
- Situational Awareness
- Deployed User Information Push and Information Pull capabilities
- Bandwidth Challenges
- Multiple Source Information Silos
- Multi Agency Legacy Integration
- Security and Data Privacy (Needs to Know!)
- Information Assurance
Openkast technology addresses these key technical problems and enables solutions that remove the disadvantages.
