Abstract:

Shared Information Framework and Technology SHIFT was originally created for MNE 5 covering the aspects of information sharing as a concept and its supporting tools within a comprehensive approach framework. SHIFT is used in MNE 5 to experiment with information flows amongst all participating actors in the field, of which potential users might include individuals from governmental entities, non-governmental organizations, military, private, local and other actors. SHIFT is an effort to enhance collaboration between governmental, non-governmental, private and local actors in the conflict regions and to produce better situational picture. SHIFT is not a competitor of any individual effort to gain better situational awareness among organizations, but the aim is to develop it in accordance with other initiatives of information sharing and collaboration. SHIFT is both a concept and a practical solution.
