An Enterprise System provides broad-range access to geospatial data and applications throughout an organization. The overall goal of an Enterprise System is to create a common infrastructure to enable access to geospatial or facility operations data and solutions. Implementing an Enterprise GIS or FMIS allows for the integration with other enterprise systems (SAP, ERP, CRM) and adds the value of spatial technology to those systems. Enterprise GIS or FMIS will also increase your overall operating efficiency and therefore reduce costs to your operation. By moving to an Enterprise System, not only will productivity increase but others with access to this data will benefit in their analyses and decisions.
All businesses and organizations are looking to reduce overall costs, improve efficiency, and gain a competitive advantage. Enterprise Systems are scalable, reliable, and secure to make sure sensitive data is protected; and the Enterprise System can grow as your organization grows. These systems are open, interoperable, web-based when appropriate, and standards-based to assist with integration of other new and legacy enterprise systems.
What can it do for my organization?
An Enterprise System can be a significant investment for many businesses and organizations; but effective implementation can lead to a higher level of data integrity and accuracy, increased productivity and access to data, and allows more effective use of the data you currently possess. No matter what industry you are in, an Enterprise System solution can provide maximum Return on Investment (ROI) and help achieve business goals.
How can Spatial Systems help my organization get started with Enterprise GIS or FMIS?
Establishing an Enterprise System begins with examining your organization and business processes at the highest level. We take the time to analyze and develop workflows and examine existing systems to reveal their effects and impacts on the organization at various levels. As with any system, implementing an Enterprise GIS or FMIS System follows the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) plan. Spatial Systems can take you and your organization through the implementation of an Enterprise System, from the planning stages to the deployment and maintenance phases.
Analyze: Our GIS experts perform needs analysis, and work with you to determine your processes and the functional requirements.
Design: Based on the gathered requirements, we will design systems architecture and focus on how to deliver the functionality.
Develop: Our technical staff and developers work towards your goals. Developers create custom applications for your needs and technical experts obtain the appropriate hardware, software and licensing for your organization.
Test: All acquired systems and applications are installed and performance and functionality are tested. We meet with you to make sure the applications developed will meet your needs.
Implementation: We get you up and running into production. Go live with your own datasets and begin taking advantage of your investment. End users receive training with your custom GIS applications.
Maintenance: Ongoing support for your organization.
