The successful development and execution of strategy often depends on the planning, design, implementation and maintenance of enterprises and enterprise system architectures. Learn about where to start, how to move forward and learn about the maintenance of an enterprise system design.

  • A National Perspective on Enterprise Architecture Planning: URISA's GIS Management Institute® and the GIS Capability Maturity Model
             Allen Ibaugh
    This session introduces the new URISA GIS Capability Maturity Model (GISCMM) as well as the online assessment tool. Session attendees will leave with information on how to complete an initial assessment of their own GIS operation.
    Enterprise GIS is expensive to develop, maintain, and operate. Even small-to-medium-sized cities, counties, and regional agencies have invested millions of dollars to develop their GIS capabilities, and they can have large annual operating budgets. Many recent third-party studies have proven that GIS delivers significant financial return on investment (ROI) to organizations that deploy it as an enterprise business-support tool. However, almost no GIS operation would be considered to be 100% implemented. In fact, most enterprise GIS operations lack important resources to meet all of their potential business needs, their sustainability is uncertain, and ROI varies depending on the maturity of their GIS management practices.
    The URISA GIS Capability Maturity Model will be described, along with its relationship to the GIS Management Institute®, including development of the GIS Management Body of Knowledge. The current development status of the GISCMM will be discussed and future uses and activities outlined. These will include development of new GIS management best practices and the offering of an enterprise GIS accreditation service.
    This session will be of value to those interested in the development, implementation, and use of GIS management professional standards and best practices.

  • Enterprise GIS Strategic Planning – The Importance of Change and a Location Platform
             Adam Carnow
    Modern enterprise GIS has recently morphed from a collection of software on different devices to a fully integrated location platform. For many established enterprise GIS departments, they are still managing and planning for their GIS based on the historic paradigm. This presentation will show the meaning and power of a location platform and how to plan to take advantage of the platform.

  • GIS Architecture for the Enterprise: Modeling a Technology Solution in UML
             Robert McKitrick
    In an environment with strict separation of duties, an n-tier system design, many levels of firewalls, and shared common services, managing the details of even a moderately sized GIS design can be a daunting task. Using the capabilities of UML to document and manage the complexity of the system makes management and communication of the design practical.
