New National Resilience Database Launched in Australia

A tech start-up has launched a new digital initiative that seeks to reinvent the way the federal government responds to a crisis by giving them ready access to needed digital skills. The new National Resilience Database will allow Australian citizens with digital skills to register to volunteer their skills to government agencies during disasters and be paid for their contributions.

The database has been designed as a new way for agencies to access skilled talent capable of stepping into short-term roles as required, according to the CTO of the start-up. She noted that when disaster strikes, one of the biggest challenges that governments face is being able to mobilise quickly and deploy the digital skills required to effectively respond. The company has seen this challenge first-hand from working closely with government agencies during the pandemic.

The NRDB is going to provide government agencies with a real-world solution — turnkey access to skilled digital talent, which is something that hasn’t existed before. “While we can’t stop disasters from occurring, we can help make sure that our country is armed with the right resources to allow us to respond in the best way possible.”.

Australian citizens interested in offering their skills can register for the NRDB and receive access to up to $5000 worth of free training in areas including data analytics, cybersecurity, digital project management, robotic process automation and software development. The firm provides digital skills training to public and private sector agencies.

Recent research found that the Global Crisis Management Software Market is projected to grow by US$ 9.6 billion in 2021, registering a CAGR of 7.8% by 2028 end. The growth of this market is primarily driven by the significant increase in cyber-attacks and natural disasters across the globe, which has been leading to increased adoption of crisis management software solutions for enterprises as well as SMEs.

Crisis Management Software is a type of software that allows users to identify and mitigate risks, both business-related and personal. It also manages all crisis management activities simultaneously in the areas of safety, security, operational continuity, legal compliance, or financial stability.

The Cloud-Based Crisis Management Software Market is projected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the advantages of cloud computing such as easy access, scalability, and multi-tenancy offered by this type of software over on-premise solutions.

The On-Premise Crisis Management Software Market is expected to witness steady market demand due to high-security standards provided by most organizations for their critical business data & information.

The main driving force of the Global Crisis Management Software Market is the growing need for crisis management software solutions. The increasing awareness about corporate social responsibility and development in transportation, communication, and energy industries are also expected to propel market growth over the next five years.

Furthermore, the rise of smart cities will benefit these vendors as they provide services such as data analytics and tracking tools that can be useful for municipalities and security agencies globally.
