|How Interoperability Helps Reduce Costs and Optimize Efficiency||
Decades ago, when public safety agencies were first beginning to invest in in-house IT systems, many agencies purchased technology from various vendors that ended up being incompatible with the technology of other agencies, including those in the same geographic localities. The information contained in an RMS system in one jurisdiction was not compatible with the information contained in another, and was functionally useless to any parties other than the primary owner of that system.
This situation ended up creating information siloes amongst agencies with aligned goals: a fire and police department in the same municipality, a county sheriff’s office and a local police force, or EMS forces from adjacent jurisdictions could not share information being collected on these platforms.
