Have heard that ROK has an Instant Enterprise cloud-based GIS solution? This week, I wanted to blog and walk you through the advantages of going Enterprise from the GIS data perspective. If you want to know more, please feel free to contact us.
So, what does a car need in order to operate? Fuel.
What does a GIS organization need? Data.
And why would an organization want to move their GIS data to ROK’s private cloud?
Scalability - Maybe you are a one person GIS shop. What happens when you grow to 5, 10, 100 employees? It is no longer realistic to pass around a shapefile or have a few file geodatabases stored on local computers. You need an SDE geodatabase with editing roles, versioning, archiving, and editor tracking. You need multiple users accessing, querying, and editing data from one spot. You need and Enterprise GIS data solution. It is time to reconcile and post.
Free your IT - Is your organization tired of walking on eggshells around the ole’ GIS Server in the closet while IT swears on every crash that this is the “last” raising of the dead? Has your organization considered moving to ArcSDE but lacks the core competencies that it takes to set up the geodatabase of your dreams?
Redundant backups, disaster recovery, multiple data centers - The cloud is a safe and secure place for your GIS data.
Direct edits to and from the internet - Make data edits using ArcGIS for Desktop and see them served out in real time to all of your GIS web applications. Make data edits through ArcGIS Online or your custom web app and see them return in real time to your SDE Geodatabase.
Anywhere access - Do I need to explain this? If you have internet, then you have data. At work, home, or on vacation…. But only if you want on vacation. Oh yea… and operating system is of no concern.
Building something better - Data is fuel, fuel powers the enterprise, the enterprise is in the cloud.
Allow your organization to focus on missions and goals. Start your Enterprise GIS today.
