Once again Assimil8 are proud to have been invited as platinum sponsors of the ESRI global summit in Madrid. Held each year, this conference brings together all the major companies in the field of Geographic Information Systems (GIS). This is a meeting of some of the biggest players, and usually leads to some significant steps forward being made through collaborations and deals. (Click here for more details of the ESRI summit)
It is a real testament to the hard work of our GIS team that we have been asked to head up the sponsors, in conjunction with IBM. Aside from our pairing the other platinum sponsors are HP and Microsoft. This gives some measure of the prestige this even brings. Last year we were sponsors and the response was phenomenal, so our team is geared up for a busy three days. They fly out tomorrow to set up the stand and get to know the venue a bit. Then it’s all hand on deck, so to speak.
ESRI users are probably already aware of the event, and should attend. But if you are at all interested in the concept of GIS, then you should go. If you aren’t able to make it, come back to our site and we’ll post up the reports, videos and anything else that comes from the summit. Or drop us a line and we can make sure we send any collateral on to you.
GIS We think it will be one of the next big things in Business Analysis. Imagine being able to take your organisational data and map it, highlighting successful regions or pinpointing problem areas.
Think then about taking this information and mapping it against other factors – demographics, competitor information, population densities or geo-political data. This takes the concept of GIS
And ESRI are leading the field in this. At Assimil8 we are proud to be associated with a company such as ESRI, for their success, but also for their culture and ethos of excellence. Not only do they have the state of the art mapping system – even though you may not have heard or it, chances are you have used it or come into contact with its operation – ESRI’s policy is to tie in with the best organisations around the world constantly to improve what they bring to their clients.
This ethos closely matches ours at Assimil8, and we’re pleased that we can work closely with ESRI, and like-minded groups such as SpotOn, IBM and the like, to offer world class, best-fit solutions to our clients.
