Bart van Leeuwen combines his 18 years of firefighting experience with 20 years of experience at Netage, a combination that allows him a new perspective on operational information delivery. With the ever larger amount of available data and changes in tactical approaches to firefighting, new and fresh thinking is needed. An “outside the box” thinker, Bart helps fire departments approach their information problems in a different way. In this process, technology is not the answer; it’s an enabler and should be treated as such. Currently, Bart is leading an innovation project that combines proven information management technology with new paradigms like semantic web technology to deal with information flows in a smarter and more agile way.
