Department of Homeland Security Selects ESRI for GIS Enterprise License Agreement

REDLANDS, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—December 12, 2006— The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has signed an Enterprise License Agreement (ELA) with ESRI that will enable the agency to deploy the full spectrum of ESRI geographic information system (GIS) software throughout its organization. The comprehensive agreement provides the department with an easy and cost-effective method to provide enterprise-wide GIS software, professional services, and training to DHS employees. It will enable DHS to expand the use of GIS to mitigate against, prepare for, and respond to events as well as secure U.S. borders, enable trade and transportation, and enforce U.S. law.

"ESRI is honored that the Department of Homeland Security has selected ESRI as a core component to its enterprise GIS, and we look forward to expanding our collaboration with the agency through the Enterprise License Agreement," says Jack Dangermond, ESRI president. "Protecting the homeland and providing safer communities is one of the most important duties of government. The ELA provides an optimized framework for deploying the full array of GIS software and services throughout DHS while providing maximum cost savings and value. It will help the agency leverage existing GIS investments and will facilitate expanded use of the technology to share information and analysis across the department."

The ELA provides the flexibility to deploy unlimited quantities of most ESRI software offerings. It makes available significant cost savings for other ESRI software, services, and training. In addition, DHS users will have access to the very latest software and upgrades as soon as they are available.

The core technology for the ELA is ESRI's ArcGIS software, which is an open and interoperable technology platform that provides advanced visualization and cartographic capabilities, spatial analysis, geographic data management, and more. ArcGIS complies with the Federal Enterprise Architecture and DHS's enterprise architecture. ArcGIS software is a complete system to author, serve, and use geographic information. The technology gets geographic information to those who need it including analysts, decision makers, field-workers, and the public through its support of mobile, Web, and desktop clients.
