About this talk

Digital Transformation in a New Age: "The Quest for Interoperability, Where Do We Stand"? How would we structure emergency coordination, situational awareness and public announcements if we could work across networks and devices? Interoperability is more than just hooking up network infrastructure. It's about enabling people across agencies and organizations to reach the right person and communicate when they need to, how they need to. But effective interoperability won't be possible until all carriers, device manufacturers, platforms and solution providers commit to enabling it. In this webinar, our experts discuss where we are in that decades-long quest. Join us to learn what it will take to get there. We'll talk about: • Barriers to interoperability • Data-sharing solutions in the post-pandemic world • Verizon Interoperability Coalition: Uniform standards • Advanced device-to-device technologies that enable interoperability across all networks Meet your speakers and host: Dr. Alison Brooks, Research Vice President for IDC's Worldwide and U.S. Public Safety practice, focuses on public safety and first responder research and advisory services, with a specialization in smart cities and communities. Ken McNeill, Service Branch Director of FEMA National Incident Management Assistant Teams since November 2017, has been responsible for all field communications, IT operations and supporting personnel during a significant national event. Our host will be Michelle Quadt. Michelle is a Director, Public Sector Strategy, at Verizon.
