SCISYS mapping capability recognised in key journal article

Continuing our commitment to the integration of spatial and non spatial solutions senior SCISYS GIS Architect, Andy Cox, has had an article published in this month’s GEO:connexion International.

Andy examines the state of the art technology employed on the SCISYS Coal Authority Inferis solution, discusses how an enterprise-wide spatial data infrastructure has transformed business processes and highlights the results achieved.  A copy of Andy’s article can be downloaded here and can also be read on the GEO:connexion website.

Inferis is based on state-of-the art Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Geographic Information System (GIS) and workflow technologies and is designed to provide The Coal Authority with a single, unified view of its enterprise. Inferis replaces previous solutions and facilitates smarter working via business process automation, service re-use and corporate data sharing.  It supports single copies and versions of the truth by embracing a “store data once use many times” principle. Services supplied by SCISYS span the entire software life cycle from analysis to support and are based on IBM Websphere and ESRI GIS tools.

GEO:connexion International is the leading business to business monthly magazine for users of spatial technologies within the British Isles, continental Europe, the Middle East and Africa.  Monthly print circulation is currently 12,000 copies for GEO:connexion International and 6,000 copies for GEO:connexion UK, with an online readership of over 110,000 unique visitors, 1.2 million hits per month as well as special event distributions across the globe.
