Many utilities have invested heavily in geospatial technology and are finding more accurate and comprehensive network data, and the systems for managing and maintaining that data, have been impactful in their organizations. Now, with a heavy investment in infrastructural knowledge, they want to make the most of what they have in place.
But there are challenges to sharing geospatial information. Non-GIS users demand simplicity; integrating data can be costly; and needs and priorities change.
The utility implementing Web-enabled GIS finds an agile flow of GIS information allows access by both traditional GIS users and non-traditional information consumers, greatly expanding the magnitude of geospatial information consumption possible. Interface with enterprise systems eliminates duplication of data stores. Eliminating data extraction and conversion improves not only efficiency but also accuracy. Communication is in near real time, with a direct line to user-assigned tasks from various modes of access. The value of the GIS has multiplied.
ArcFM Server web services includes the tools and viewing capabilities that enables GIS data managed by the ArcFM Enterprise GIS solution to be available in distributed locations by many more users for multi-disciplinary support. Utilities find optimized returns on ArcFM Server investment through more efficient data management, improved infrastructure data quality and enhanced decision making and customer service.
