Envista and Google Enable the World's First Platform-as-a-Service Technology Powered by Google Maps Engine

BEVERLY, MA -- (Marketwire) -- Mar 13, 2013 -- IRIS from Envista, Inc., a new Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that allows the rapid configuration of custom apps for the utility, pipeline and other industries, signed an agreement with Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG) to utilize and resell Google Maps Engine. IRIS is a cloud-based Platform-as-a-Service designed to enable an organization to rapidly configure, not code, location aware web apps without the need for any special training. IRIS apps help the utility, pipeline and other industries address business problems such as creating a common view of large scale disparate data sets, asset management, transmission line encroachment, change and high consequence area detection, all which require integration and analysis of both geospatial and business data. Incorporating Google Maps Engine as a part of the IRIS platform provides several key advantages -- scale, familiarity and mobility. With Google Maps Engine, IRIS users can process, organize and manage location data using Google's unrivaled cloud infrastructure. Using Google's purpose-built geo cloud platform, organizations can see their data visualized on the Google Map and distribute this information to stakeholders at-scale. This enables organizations to better leverage existing data investments, which is often siloed, by presenting it in ways that are actionable. With more efficient ways to share critical location-based information, a company can reduce risk, increase productivity and gain insight for improved decision making.

Powered by Google Maps Engine, IRIS apps incorporate the simple Google Maps user interface, making them easy-to-use and familiar to employees across an organization. "A key benefit of implementing Google Maps Engine is the ability to provide IRIS users with real-time access to their data layers, leveraging a map tool that people are already familiar with," says Tarun Bhatnagar, director, Google Geo Enterprise.

Google Maps Engine allows geo data to be securely published and shared with internal and external stakeholders on any device and in any environment. Using a combination of Google's mapping and Android-enabled technologies, IRIS apps can enhance communications between office operations and project sites by giving users the ability to access data visualization anytime, anywhere.

"Today's customers require and demand simplicity and speed when attacking business problems. We're excited that IRIS is able to leverage Google Maps Engine and enable people to quickly and affordably utilize their existing data stores to rapidly configure solutions that meet their specific needs and requirements across industries," stated Mark Prestipino, Envista CEO. "We are proud to deliver the world's first Google powered Platform-as-a-Service and building upon our strategic business relationships with Google to offer a compelling solution set to our customers which allows them to innovate inside their organizations in ways never before possible."
