Today’s World Requires Smarter GIS Capabilities
September 17th, 2012 by Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial
Most large organizations are comprised of multi-disciplinary environments with many departments, roles and geographic jurisdictions. As such, conventional GIS solutions often cannot fully meet the complex requirements that are needed for making geospatial data actionable.
In fact, user access is often one of the driving challenges. While all users in an organization may require access to common data, access to specific records may vary depending on department, role, or geographic jurisdiction. In addition, as project lifecycles change, user access requirements may also vary.
Recently, Aurora Energy in Australia made a decision to simplify their workflows and streamline communication. Aurora Energy, and many other diverse organizations worldwide, have discovered and implemented GeoMedia Smart Client. At GeoMedia Smart Client’s core is a highly configurable rules and workflow engine that enables organizations to implement dynamic life-cycle workflows, feature-level access control, data validation and behavior, and integration to other systems.
We recently hosted a webinar that provided an overview of this unique solution. In addition, we demonstrated how Intergraph’s software provides a powerful, web-based smart client that supports high-end functionality, including vector data capture and editing.
GeoMedia Smart Client meets a unique need in the marketplace. 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. This solutions equips this broader audience of users, providing a new means for them to access and use rich geospatial data in their business processes. In addition, organizations can create a single deployment that can be configured for an unlimited number of applications.
From municipalities and transportation and utility infrastructure operators to government emergency management agencies, there is a wide range of organizations that have effectively deployed this solution.
As today’s geospatial needs are becoming more complex, I highly recommend viewing our webinar to learn more about this unique solution for a smarter GIS.
