Turning data into information - nisXplorer

1,285 views

Published on

NIS AG has introduced a new web solution based on GE's Geospatial Server and Open Source technology. From the very beginning, the engineering team designed and developed the solution around four key principles, ensuring maximum business value for its end-users.
In the presentation, Erwin Saegesser commented on their key principles and why they were instrumental to the project’s success. Using examples and live presentations, he further commented on value driven and agile development, key lessons learned, best practices and how customers were engaged in the process.
The presentation is targeted at customers and partners who want to enable information sharing rather than giving end-users meaningless data together with an infinite number of complex tools.
