THE SHARING OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY EXPERIENCE WORLDWIDE
GOVERNMENTS HELPING EACH OTHER
Imagine this: One national government is considering investing in new technology to provide better weather information to its citizens. Through a cooperatively operated focal point it easily connects with experts in other governments who have substantial experience in weather information systems. These other governments have learned that there are dangers ahead for the government about to invest scarce resources. Some roads will lead to problems and unexpected expense. Others can lead to success while reducing costs. The governments share this information and a wiser information technology investment is made.
