Today, GIS is not just software. It’s data. It’s people. It’s getting to the answer quicker. More users demand access to information but don’t consume the information in the same way as a GIS professional would. As curators and managers of geospatial information, GIS professionals are looking to support the entire organization not just those in GIS Departments. Organizations are increasingly aware that geospatial data is expanding and being collected.
How can you and your organization leverage this data for smarter, more effective decision making?
As experts in location (we were just named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Location Intelligence Platforms, Q4 2018), we invite you to see us demonstrate ways to release location intelligent insights using flexible and customizable approaches which aren’t locked down by restrictive GIS software applications and environments. It’s time to #FreeYourGIS.
