Today, GIS is not just software. It’s data. It’s people. It’s getting to the answer. Quicker. Data is expanding. More users demand access to information but don’t consume the information in the same way as a GIS professional would. But as stewards of geospatial information, GIS professionals are looking to support the organizational needs. More users need better information. Watch this replay to understand how Pitney Bowes is delivering solutions by providing new ways for more users to access and use geospatial information to help you #FreeYourGIS.

Understand how this paradigm is evolving and learn about the challenges and opportunities for the proliferation of location information, and the role the GIS department can play. Drawing on real-world use cases and business challenges, we discuss:

  • The key future challenges and opportunities for the GIS department as location data requirements expand, both internally and externally
  • How bringing GIS from the ‘backroom to the front room’ is making game-changing impacts and raising the profile of the GIS team
  • The technology landscape and the capabilities, both from a software and data point of view that can help solve these challenges
