Geographic Changes and Configurable Workflows
November 19th, 2012 by Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial
Today’s organizations are more progressive in the way they tap into geospatial solutions for driving smarter decisions. And, as we have highlighted before, the key to being a forward-thinking organization is by being able to empower a large base of users that work between rigid desktop GIS and light-weight browser-based GIS systems.
“I found it to be more intuitive than most “lightweight” client interfaces that try to sell themselves as “robust” GIS solutions. … Organizations wishing to deploy GIS to a broader set of users should investigate Smart Client.”
GeoMedia Smart Client engages all users across an organization, enabling them to seamlessly integrate geographic changes into configurable workflows.
The new release provides noteworthy improvements, outlined in an on-demand webinar. These enhancements include the ability for users to make updates with waning or non-existent Internet connectivity, which is a challenge for organizations with a distributed workforce out in the field. Thankfully, these employees remain productive as changes are uploaded upon connectivity again through a process that is seamless to the user experience.
In addition, the new release will allow for project-based conflict handling that can be added through the workflow definitions. Other new features include ERDAS APOLLO Essentials integration, workflow manager API enhancements and support for geographic coordinates and custom coordinate systems.
The new offering will be available in three product tiers, depending on each organization’s need:
Overall, GeoMedia Smart Client will further allow end-users to leverage advanced geospatial functionality via simple-to-use map-based tools, streamlining their processes and honing their expertise. As a result, vibrant geospatial business workflows provide a level of sophistication not traditionally supported by legacy out-of-the-box horizontal software products.
Stay tuned for ongoing updates with regards to our new product launch. In the meantime, please feel free check out our new microsite dedicated to this major Intergraph initiative here and let us know what you think.
