GIS today is about doing more with less
April 14th, 2014 by Matt Sheehan
We live in challenging times. As budgets are cut, expectations are we do more with less. We have two options; work harder or work smarter.
Guess which is our preferred approach?
Working smarter means stepping back from your role and daily tasks. Pushing away barriers, both actual and self imposed. We are surrounded by change in GIS; more than that in technology itself. If you stick with tried and trusted methods of getting your work done, you are living in the past. There are better ways.
Learn and understand. GIS is no longer ArcGIS Server or Geoserver only, its a location technology platform. A complimentary suite of elements. Simpler. Cheaper.
Nobody is gonna hold your hand. Some of us can help. But its up to you to understand then apply. Things just became easier. Do what you do better, then expand across the organization.
