This paper presents the concept of holistic approach to urgent computing which extends resources management in situation of emergency from computational resources to Data Acquisition and Preprocessing System. The layered structure of this system is presented in detail and its rearrangement in case of emergency is proposed. This process is harmonized with large scale computation using Urgent Service Profile. The proposed approach was validated by practical work performed under ISMOP project. Concrete examples of Urgent Service Profile definition have been discussed. Results of preliminary experiments related to energy management and data transmission optimization in case of emergency have been presented.
