    Information technology can’t stop the rain, but the intelligent collection and use of data can help governments and others plan proactively for disasters and mitigate their impact. Following the devastating Typhoon Haiyan (also known as Typhoon Yolanda), the Philippine Department of Science and Technology began working with IBM in 2013 to launch an integrated disaster management solution. The effort began with the IBM Intelligent Operations Center platform for disaster management and augmented with RadioConnect for Sametime technology from UnifiedEdge, and Touch Assisted Command and Control System software from Priority 5 Holdings.
