Going beyond traditional GIS
IQGeo announced a transformative next generation end-to-end Geospatial platform. Based on our industry proven myWorld platform, the new platform goes far beyond traditional GIS solutions, delivering a step-change in productivity and collaboration for network operations.

Legacy GIS has failed network infrastructure companies 

Communications and utility companies control extremely complex network environments. They have millions of constantly changing assets across miles of infrastructure, involving hundreds of field and office-based professionals.  

Unfortunately, the solution offered by legacy GIS providers has delivered shockingly poor information quality. Most organizations simply don’t have an accurate and timely view of their network assets, creating massive operational inefficiencies and dramatically increasing corporate risk. 

This serious situation is not a failure of the professionals working to manage their networks, but of their GIS technology and associated siloed applications. The legacy GIS approach is broken and not sustainable as network complexity and competitive pressures continue to increase. 

 

Reality-centric vs. Cartography-centric 

Legacy GIS was designed 20-30 years ago, focused on creating and maintaining paper maps. Even more recently designed systems perpetuate a cartography-centric approach through design processes that create major update bottlenecks between field operations and office systems. Representing a complex infrastructure network on paper in a 2D, non-interactive way, creates an unbridgeable data gap that prevents staff from making rapid and informed operational decisions. 

By contrast, IQGeo offers an innovative reality-centric approach that enables infrastructure companies to dramatically increase the quality and currency of their data, while reducing operating costs and risk. An integrated mobile first architecture, with smart applications, actually models the reality of the network using much simpler graphical representations. This streamlines processes and applications, removing inherent GIS update bottlenecks. Authorized staff can now update network assets on any device, from anywhere.
