Presentation Title: ‘Towards Geo-Enablement’

• As changes in ICT and GIS happen so fast, what opportunities does this bring for further Business Process integration? Is there a risk we are missing opportunities?

• I will discuss the steps towards a ‘Geo-Enables’ enterprise and how it is critical that business drivers lead any ‘IM strategy’ and GIS strategy. An ICT strategy should follow these.

• Is the IT industry in need of business process management (BPM) integration, rather that business process automation (BPA) (workflow) led initiatives?

  • 8. Asset Information Where How Why Who When What • What can we ask of our Asset Management Systems (AMS)?Copyright © 2012 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved
  • 9. What (Where) is Geospatial? • Geographic Information Systems (GIS) • Computer-Aided Design (CAD) • Building Information Modelling (BIM) • Survey Activities (Laser Scanning & ‘Geomatics’) • Remote Sensing (Satellite, Aerial, LiDAR) • Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS/GPS) • Location-Based Services (LBS) • Web Maps & Web GISCopyright © 2012 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved
  • 10. What opportunities are there? • Standards for Web Services - e.g. OGC • Mainstream Location Information • Automated Business Processes / BPM / Innovation • BIM – Building Information Modelling (Process-centric) • Sensor Web / Smart Networks • Open Data • GeoWeb • Awareness and personal expectation:Copyright © 2012 GeoEnable Ltd.

  • 18. We need Standards (& Codification) • To define where we are on the track – need a coding system ( Legacy system specified by London Underground) – N124 = unique area code – N = northern line – EB = eastbound track – LO = local track – 101 = 101 metres along track in direction from start of an areaCopyright © 2012 GeoEnable Ltd.
