  7. 7. Re Open-Source BI from 2 recent research studies• Gartner – Predicts that open-source BI will grow five-fold thru 2012 – Lower cost of ownership, application flexibility, innovation, extensibility / embedability and scalability make open source applications a perfect alternative for organizations looking for high performance and value. – Not only are open-source BI solutions continuing to appeal to cash-strapped companies, but they are improving functionality and starting to reach the mainstream market• Beyenetwork – Of the respondents claim to have deployed open-source software for reporting, data integration, or database analytics purposes, and more than a third say they plan to evaluate open-source for analytics in the near term. Only 12 percent of respondents say they have no plans to look into open-source BI. – Open-source rose quickly in the information management market, from almost nothing a few years ago to community- and commercially supported projects for every possible use. – Open source is primarily used by small companies is a myth. Data also shows that medium and large organizations are doing more evaluations Copyright 2006 © INTEGEO All Right Reserved

  20. 20. Why is location important inperformance management? • Every dollar spent has a location • Where are our service delivery points? • Where are our client markets? • Where do I recruit specialist skills? • What areas aren’t we covering? • How is our accessibility? • Where will we site our new sites? • How much assistance has been offered in my electorate? • The “where” can be just as important as the what Copyright 2006 © INTEGEO All Right Reserved 20
  21. 21. Location Intelligence (LI/GIS) • Location Intelligence is a mature domain allowing users perform spatial analysis. • Create maps from spatial data • Can highlight spatial patterns in data such as geographic clusters of incidents • Capable of advanced visualisations such as hot spot or gas cloud analysis • Not very good at analysing non spatial data or representing data in a non spatial environment. Copyright 2006 © INTEGEO All Right Reserved 21
  22. 22. Location becoming pervasive • Google Maps, Google Earth • Satellite Navigation • Personal GPS devices • RFID tags • Geocoded Address Reference files • Expectation that Location will be available in main Business Reporting context and tied to it • Easy to do, not require GIS skills or programming • How do we achieve this?? Copyright 2006 © INTEGEO All Right Reserved 22
  23. 23. Important Considerations • Open Standards – OGC • Open Source Spatial based on OGC • GIS/Spatial – Web Services OGC standards based • Publishing BI spatial analytics as OGC WMS Copyright 2006 © INTEGEO All Right Reserved 23
  24. 24. Open Geospatial Consortium • Development of open geospatial standards • Certification of compliant software • Advocacy of Interoperability Copyright 2006 © INTEGEO All Right Reserved 24
  25. 25. The Open Geospatial Consortium • Formed from the Open Grass Foundation in 1994 as a consortium of US Universities, Government Departments and the US Army Corps of Engineers. • Originally driven by the army to help procurement process. • Progressed to an aim of sharing geographic content using open standards. • Now has 344 companies as members from Computer, Commercial, Government, Academic and Defence backgrounds (amongst others). • Has created standards for many Geo-related topics. • Has a core set of spatial interoperability standards, most prominent being the Web Map Service and Web Feature Service. Copyright 2006 © INTEGEO All Right Reserved 25
  26. 26. OGC Standards• Web Map Services (WMS)• Web Feature Service (WFS)• Web Map Context (WMC)• Styled Layer Descriptor Copyright 2006 © INTEGEO All Right Reserved 26
  27. 27. ROI on Open Standards• 26% overall saving. – Lower costs for sharing data. – Low Maintenance and Operation costs outweigh higher implementation costs.• Significantly reduce risk. – Long term support for Standards – Services Oriented Architecture allows componentizing future enhancements.

  28. 28. Geospatial Open Source • Server environment • Geoserver • Robust • Standards Compliant Copyright 2006 © INTEGEO All Right Reserved 28
  29. 29. OGC to link Business Intelligence and Spatial • Use of OGC standards to provide a generic connection framework between reporting tools and geospatial systems. • Types of data that are combined to support better program management, gap analysis and demographic analysis Copyright 2006 © INTEGEO All Right Reserved 29
  30. 30. Use of GIS web Services • Google Maps • Provides ready access to street and satellite data worldwide • Provides geocoding facility • Scaleable and highly robust • Most organisations can use at this level • Large savings in infrastructure management • Reducing spatial data overload • Data maintained, styled and update • Very cost-effective Copyright 2006 © INTEGEO All Right Reserved 30

  35. 35. Map Intelligence – Spatial Hub Benefits • The map is integrated and driven from the Business Reporting world • Can be considered just another Chart Type • No specialist GIS skills required for development or deployment • Updates and reflects the current state of the Business report • One centrally maintained GIS infrastructure utilised by all users • Client Integration Kit for linking other BI sources or applications Copyright 2006 © INTEGEO All Right Reserved 35
  36. 36. Map Intelligence WMS export • Many Different GIS servers • Do they support WMS import • Map Intelligence supports export of BI spatial layers as interactive WMS • Allows opportunity to link BI with other GIS servers • Example – DEEWR using specific BI tool and specific GIS platform • Integrate BI into an existing GIS interface Copyright 2006 © INTEGEO All Right Reserved 36
