HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Dec. 12, 2002 — Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions has received validation of GBC Compliance for its GeoMedia® technology from the SAP® Industry Business Unit for Utilities.
GeoMedia Professional is compliant with SAP R/3 Enterprise® and mySAP.com® solutions via the latest SAP interface technology, the GIS Connector Package. This enables ERP users across organizations to seamlessly access and experience a new geospatial dimension for their enterprise data, workflows, and processes, allowing organizations to improve customer service and increase competitiveness.
Because of the unique data integration features included in GeoMedia technology, geospatial data in virtually any format from the industry’s most popular GIS can now be linked with SAP R/3 Enterprise and mySAP.com solutions.
“Validation of compliance with GBC is designed to accelerate implementation efforts for customers as they link geospatial data with their enterprise information systems,” said Dr. Walter G. Kienle, Head of Development Asset and Work Management of the Industry Business Unit for Utilities.
The integration of SAP R/3 Enterprise and mySAP.com solutions with GIS augments the functionality and value of both systems by leveraging existing corporate data and extending the type of applications that can use them. Geospatial solutions, based on Intergraph’s GeoMedia Professional, expand essential enterprise applications with localization of enterprise resources, spatial analysis, and visualization, regardless of platform – client/server, Web, or distributed computing architectures, including mobile and wireless devices.
Organizations in utilities and communications, transportation, and government markets that use SAP solutions for ERP will benefit from the added capability to better identify, interpret, and plan enterprise resources such as physical assets, real estate, network facilities, and objects, in combination with customer, project, address, financial, and land base data.
“The SAP validation gives customers increased confidence in their decision to buy Intergraph’s desktop, Web, and handheld geospatial solutions,” said Bart Hoogenraad, global marketing director, Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions. “They know they can implement an open solution that will efficiently integrate geospatial data into business systems that is validated by a pair of industry leaders.”
