Indicator 5: Data Locked Away
If you have technology in place for a small subset of your team that could provide value to other, remote audiences, there should be an app for that. For example, a police dispatch officer views video in a back room full of monitors, but the officers patrolling the area do not have access. Give the remote officers a mobile device with an app that ties into their cameras and you’ve placed real time information in the hands of people who have to make quick decisions.
A great example of this type of app is iRa C3 from Lextech Labs.
