Redlands, California, USA: Alliant Energy Corporation has signed a three-year enterprise license agreement (ELA) with ESRI that will provide unlimited deployments of current ESRI GIS software. Alliant is an investor-owned public utility company that provides regulated electric and natural gas service to approximately 1 million electric and 400,000 natural gas customers in the states of Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. The agreement will simplify GIS software procurement and administration, make budget management more efficient, and facilitate software distribution to staff throughout the utility.
Alliant plans to take advantage of ArcGIS Server for broader access to desktop and mobile solutions. Alliant will be able to use ArcGIS Server to build fast, high-quality Web mapping applications that improve situational awareness and integrate with other enterprise systems such as work management, customer information, and outage management. With ArcGIS Server, field crews will be able to more effectively use ArcGIS Mobile for inspections, design, routing, and locating sites.
