National security, national intelligence, and defense organizations have started to switch from independent, stand-alone GIS systems to more integrated, enterprise approaches that share resources, data, and applications. In short, stove-pipe, single purpose systems are being replaced by multipurpose, integrated applications in a service-oriented architecture (SOA).
Enterprise GIS uses your existing network and supports your core business and mission needs by leveraging geographic information.
With an enterprise GIS, you can
- Provide a common infrastructure for building and deploying GIS solutions.
- Extend geospatial capabilities to nontraditional GIS users.
- Improve the capabilities of other enterprise systems by leveraging the value of geospatial information.
- Use GIS consistently across your organization and increase overall operating efficiency.
These stories show how defense and intelligence organizations benefit from enterprise GIS.
