The world is changing fast. We are experiencing rapid and fundamental changes never seen in recorded history. Decision makers are forced to take radical decisions that will have long term impacts on our lives. Social distancing is the best bet in order to flatten the curve, implicitly making the timespan of the curve longer… its first when the smoke is cleared, we will know the full impact.

Countries, organizations, individuals and communities are basing decisions on common datasets from the open Internet, not really able to validate the authenticity. The established media is publishing headlines based on the same datasets and the information arena is completely flooded with voices trying to be heard… we are in times of crisis.

”There’s no need to panic … but we need to get going.” – Bill Gates said on the TED 2015 talk (The next outbreak? We’re not ready). To this point Microsoft has created several impressive cloud platforms and solutions to facilitate for organizations to better adapt to the new VUCA-world (ever increasing volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity). Microsoft Teams has seen an explosive growth as many more workers are now working from home. The digital workplace services in Office 365 is making this transition possible, with security and governance built in. Benefiting from the raw power of the Power Platform everyone is empowered to innovate and make custom solutions, ready to be deployed today.

In these times of crisis Microsoft recently has made two impressive solutions freely available for customer organizations to quickly adjust and implement for improved crisis communication and healthcare organizations emergency response capabilities. Showcasing the effectiveness of the Power Platform and integrated Office 365 cloud services.

What is the Crisis Communication app?

Connects users with information about a crisis in one easily accessible place. Includes internal company news, RSS feeds, frequently asked questions, links and emergency contacts. Data is stored in SharePoint lists and the included administration application allows for activation of selected features and content creation.

What is the Emergency Response solution?

Data is stored in the Common Data Service (CDS) and the solution includes a Power BI dashboard to summarize key data and insights for managers to make well informed decisions.

Maybe for the first time in human history the opposite seems true for ancient storyteller Aesop’s quote:

“United we Stand, divided we Fall”. – Aesop

In these times of crisis and social distancing it seems more like…

“Divided we Stand, United we Fall” – Social Distancing, 2020
