... 4.1.10 Principle 10: Shared Data To improve the quality and efficiency of airport operations, airport personnel must have timely access to accurate data.

From page 48...
... 4.1.17 Principle 17: Control of Technological Diversity Technological diversity must be controlled to minimize the cost of operating in and maintaining multiple processing environments.
