Enterprise access to geospatial data

An easily extensible platform

In large enterprises, geospatial technology can be applied to many different business processes and problems. It is important that any geospatial platform can be easily adapted and extended to handle your specific business processes.

Many aspects of the myWorld™ system can be configured using a simple GUI without any coding, including the creation of new applications focused on a specific business process - important for maintaining simplicity for end users. myWorld includes a carefully designed module structure and well documented API to allow customers or third parties to extend the myWorld product in a way that is supportable and upgradeable, using mainstream development environments such as JavaScript and HTML.

Geospatial data access, anywhere

Field workers require the ability to work even when they don’t have a network connection. Distributing and maintaining geospatial data for offline use across thousands of devices is very hard, and has traditionally been problematic and costly. Solutions need to run on any mobile device to provide maximum flexibility, reduce cost and risk, and to enable BYOD and use by contractors and other third parties. 

myWorld™ provides field proven, highly scalable, robust and flexible offline data sync capabilities that can scale to thousands of users. It seamlessly handles the transition between online and offline working. myWorld delivers common functionality, including any extensions written by you, third parties or IQGeo, across local applications on Android, iOS and Windows, as well as in any web browser. Its user interface automatically adapts to tablets, phones and laptops.

Data integration leveraging location

Integration of all your enterprise data leveraging location can streamline many business processes and provide rich insights. It is typically a complex and time consuming task to integrate all the data sources that an application needs into a location enabled environment.

myWorld™ is built on open technologies and has a variety of mechanisms for integrating with data sources, including a range of web services, SQL level integration, and file loading in csv or other formats, which can be the fastest for very large data volumes. myWorld integrations are often implemented in days or weeks rather than months. At one of our large communications customers, myWorld integrates twenty different enterprise data sources.

 

Enterprise access to geospatial data

Enabling enterprise access to geospatial data is important for improving a wide range of business processes. Traditional GIS products are powerful but complex. End user expectations in terms of ease of use and performance have been dramatically reset by Google Maps, and traditional enterprise GIS solutions do not meet these needs. Scaling geospatial applications to thousands of users is a challenge with traditional GIS architectures.

Google Maps has revolutionized the geospatial market and almost everyone is familiar with this application. myWorld™ leverages this familiarity in its design, making it very intuitive to users. At one of our largest customers, a top five US cable company, users gave myWorld the highest user satisfaction rating of any application rolled out in the 20 years that they have been measuring this. myWorld easily scales to large enterprises, delivering outstanding performance to thousands of users.
