The 2009 "Black Saturday" bushfires were the worst in Australia’s history, costing 173 lives, over 2000 homes and over $4 billion in damages. One lesson learned: the Victorian government wanted...
a system that could warn residents of a future emergency - quickly. The government commissioned Telstra, the country's largest telco, to build that system. This video describes the emergency alert system from the perspective of the project executive, Sam McManus from Telstra. He describes how and why Telstra chose Infosys as its innovation partner to design and build the system, and the business and community outcomes of this life-saving initiative.
