TACCS™ Software Implemented in Philippines Department of Science and Technology’s New Integrated Operations Center for Disaster Recovery
Priority 5 partnered with IBM in deploying a TACCS™ software package for the Philippines’ Department of Science and Technology (DOST) to aid in natural disaster recovery efforts. Installed in time for the country’s upcoming and treacherous rainy season, TACCS™ arms a new operations center provided by IBM with a superior integration of communication channels and technology. With data streams coming through various channels — such as radio, mobile, and Internet — the DOST can quickly grasp the conditions of its operating environment based on real-time data delivered in a Common Operating Picture (COP). With the invaluable information provided by the TACCS™ software package, the Philippines disaster recovery services will be able to cut down precious response time and, even more, confidently take action to implement the most informed and effective decisions.
