The Department of Defense's APAN was identified as the primary information sharing platform during Haiti earthquake relief efforts. APAN swiftly launched an emergency response community, powered by Telligent, to leverage unstructured information sharing. The use of the APAN community during the Haiti relief operations signaled a fundamental shift in US military communications from "top-down" structured data architecture to a more horizontal collaborative, unstructured data community technology. Throughout the Haiti response efforts, the importance of unstructured data quickly became evident. The success of APAN has forever changed how emergency response personnel share information.
APAN's successful implementation during the Haiti operations proved its value in sharing information — situation reports, imagery and other crucial statistics — with the humanitarian aid and disaster relief community. This resulted in a quicker response, better allocation of resources, and lives saved.
