GeoMedia Smart Client Obliterates Growing Disparity between Antiquated GIS Products and the Needs of Today’s Geospatial Contributors, Movers and Shakers
March 1st, 2012 by Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial
Today, stakeholders across your organization know the value of geographic information, but often lack the expertise to run a traditional desktop GIS. Online maps delivered by a web GIS are helpful, but these implementations often do not support the technical geospatial functions or flavored workflows required. Today, users need the power of GIS, not as a horizontal technology, but delivered in vertical market focused workflows.
Between those working with a rigid and technically demanding desktop GIS and a static lightweight browser based GIS there exists a large potential user base. These users are eager to geospatially accelerate their business workflows and ignite the power of GIS. This requires a new approach – working outside the passive and limiting departmental deployments of the GIS that have plagued organizations for decades.
The enterprise wide “smart GIS” obliterates the growing disparity between the status quo and what a GIS needs to be. A smart GIS is the perfect GIS, connecting and equipping ALL users with the power of geography, breaking down the walls of legacy closed, passive and uninspiring one-dimensional GIS products. A smart GIS provides a platform for a smarter world — a digital world where geographic information is the key ingredient to jumpstarting business critical workflows for the purpose of understanding our changing earth.
This is why we are very excited to announce a new solution called GeoMedia Smart Client, which is an enterprise-wide solution that obliterates the growing disparity between static GIS products and the needs of today’s geospatial contributors.
GeoMedia Smart Client makes your organization progressive, empowering individuals and departments to collectively ignite your dynamic GIS. Geographic changes are easily and interactively implemented across an enterprise wide smart GIS, seamlessly integrating into customized workflows. You determine these vibrant geospatial business workflows, providing a level of sophistication not supported by legacy out-of-the-box horizontal software products.
If you are interested in learning more about GeoMedia Smart Client, join us for Smart Web Editing and Workflow Optimization, a free webinar on March 6, 2012 or watch one of our demo movies. Our vision is to make every organization a smart GIS enterprise.
