Enterprise systems must evolve for real time GIS

Realtime GIS, big data coming in to the enterprise GIS systems of electric utilities

Watch the GeoBuiz Exclusive with Dan Shannon, Executive Director at, Angus GeoSolutions Inc. (AGSI), Canada. He says on his LinkedIn post mentioning the discussion especially in the context of Realtime GIS, big data coming in to the enterprise GIS systems of electric utilities:

A change in the way we think about, architect, and interact with geospatial applications is necessary if companies expect to effectively operate and analyse their complex networks of infrastructure and resources; networks that connect them with their customers and their communities.

Here are the excerpts from the discussion for your benefit:

  • Initial investments in in electric was driven from engineering stand point of view
  • Moving forward, need to interact with data in real time, this requires a stream of data
  • Traditional As-Built update cycles & workflows are coming closer to near and in utilities
  • The data coming in is putting a lot of stress on the traditional systems
  • Databases are to be designed for performance for realtime queries and information
  • We can work comfortably with oracle databases for information handling in database for utilities
  • We deploy Go360 suite for various customers that integrates provides and information
