Collaborative outcomes enable the interests of multiple departments, organizations or agencies to be met through sharing resources or information in a synergistic fashion. While preparing to travel to South Africa for business, I registered with the US State Department – a service for citizens traveling abroad to help in keeping them safe. I am not sure exactly where my information went, but I felt more comfortable knowing that someone could alert me if my travel plans or activities would be affected during my visit. While on my trip, I received updates on my Blackberry to incidents that transpired. In a case such as this, I would like to know that governments or organizations are working together, so that I would be alerted if, for example the area where my hotel was located had been affected by a power outage, or even a vehicle accident which prevented me from entering the area, and provided alternate routes I might take. In these types of events, the utility company would collaborate with government to alert them of the power outage, and Police would respond to ensure traffic is not affected, or even position additional units in the area to deter crime. They can collaborate in this way through a common Business Process Platform, on which each organization is able to better accomplish its mission by utilizing necessary information which may reside outside of the organization itself. During my visit I was interested to see that the South African government is already working closely with the tourism industry to ensure that travelers are safe during their stay in the area. Organizations collaborating in these ways helps to maintain the safety of the public and also to ensure the resilience of the government as a whole by aligning the proper resources with the incidents at hand. Leveraging Business Process Platforms to support these Collaborative Outcomes is an ideal way to improve public security.
