Crises are frequent and varied, and may have profound ef fects on individuals and organizations. Effectively manag ing crises, regardless of their scope, requires the ability to quickly process potentially large amounts of information about a rapidly changing world. This paper presents a software architecture, the event web, that can be used to help effectively manage crises. An event web allows for the specification, deployment, ob servation and management of large numbers of persistent software objects that generate, process or consume streams of events. The system is designed to be independent of any particular programming language or hardware architecture.
