Ubisense CTO of Geospatial Technology to Present at the Pacific Northwest Geospatial Information & Technology Association’s 2015 Annual Conference
DENVER — April 17, 2015 — Ubisense Group plc (AIM: UBI), a leader in enterprise location intelligence solutions, today announced its CTO of geospatial technology, Peter Batty, will present at the annual PNWGITA conference being held next week outside of Seattle. Batty will present “The Consumerization of Geospatial,” on April 20 as part of the opening session.
Like many industries, the consumerization of geospatial technology is driving change across the utility industry as companies gain access to new and more data and applications that can be leveraged to improve their operations. During his session, Batty will explore several useful functions derived from integrating data sources within an enterprise system and the multitude of benefits that can be achieved based on real deployments by utility companies. He will also discuss the challenges associated with integrating cloud-based commercial systems with existing complex systems like GIS, outage management systems (OMS) and work management systems (WMS), and what needs to be considered to drive widespread adoption within utilities.
Ubisense works with utilities to help streamline data sources to gain greater insight about their operations. To enable this, Ubisense offers myWorld which integrates data from multiple entities into a single view. myWorld supports anyone in an organization by providing access to a map-based overview of detailed network data, on any device whether they’re online or offline.
