Changing Mobile GIS Requirements
When: Wednesday, April 9
Time: 2:00 PM CDT
Who: Andrew Lund, Senior Spatial Consultant, we-do-IT
The number of mobile devices in circulation has now surpassed the world's population. A rapid acceleration in iOS, Android and Windows 8 consumer device up-take has resulted in tablets becoming popular for Utility and Telco field use. MIL-STD-810 certified cases transform consumer class tablets into fully ruggedized, yet lightweight tablets at 10 percent of the legacy ruggedized laptop cost. The new benchmark requirements for Mobile GIS are data interoperability, hosting flexibility, client choice and on-/off-line omnipresence. Mobile GIS are not "just mapping" anymore — complex business use cases require a powerful geo-centric mobile integration platform to any other enterprise information system such as ERP/CIS/OMS/DMS/SmartGrid/B2B — enabling the Spatial Enterprise. The presentation concentrates on educational business and technology benefits over commercial considerations.
