ESRI Extends Infrastructure Management at IBM Pulse 2009
ESRI ArcGIS Server, Together with IBM Maximo Spatial, Integrates Asset and Facilities Management into a Single, Scalable, and Continuous Solution.
|Location, Location, Location–Improve Asset Management by Taking GIS Inside the Building|
Redlands, CA (PRWEB) February 5, 2009 — ESRI, the world’s leading provider of geographic information system (GIS) software, will describe how ArcGIS Server with IBM Maximo Spatial delivers a single, scalable solution for asset and facilities management (FM) at IBM’s Pulse conference being held February 8-12, 2009, at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. ESRI will demonstrate and discuss how customers can design and deploy one continuous, enterprise geodatabase for assets both inside and outside facilities, giving property and facilities management professionals the tools and data they need to manage land, infrastructure, and building assets.
Clients like the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and National Park Service (NPS) use GIS to enhance their infrastructure and facilities asset management. Using ESRI’s ArcGIS Server and IBM Maximo Spatial, these agencies integrate spatial information and related infrastructure asset and work management data seamlessly. This allows NPS to better visualize assets and create smarter situational awareness, while BIA has expanded its ability to use asset data through integrating GIS with external systems.
Dennis Smith, ESRI federal government business development manager, and Julio Olimpio, ESRI strategic alliance manager for IBM, will be presenting a paper entitled “Location, Location, Location–Improve Asset Management by Taking GIS Inside the Building” on Wednesday, February 11, 2009, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the MGM Conference Center in room 112. This paper will address the importance of location in an asset management context, how traditional enterprise asset management (EAM) systems can scale to include FM capability, and the reasons why spatially enabled asset management is an especially critical business function in a down economy.
