September 14, 2009 -- Aylesbury: ESRI (UK), the market leader in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) solutions, and Microsoft are running an event to demonstrate how their technologies together help remove the boundaries to businesses’ return on investment (ROI).
The free one day event at Microsoft’s headquarters in Reading on Tuesday 20 October 2009 will highlight the ease of integration between ESRI’s ArcGIS 9.3.1 and Microsoft technology, the latest trends in GIS and the business case for using an enterprise-wide GIS.
