This paper describes the necessity for government agencies to share data as well as obstacles to overcome in order to achieve information sharing. We study two domains: law enforcement and disease informatics. Some of the ways in which we were able to overcome the obstacles, such as data security and privacy issues, are explained. We conclude by highlighting the lessons learned while working towards our goals.
