Overview

The Need to Access and Understand Infrastructure Data Drives GIS
Geographic information system (GIS) is an organized collection of computer hardware, software, geographic data, and personnel designed to efficiently capture, store, update, manipulate, analyze, and display all forms of geographically referenced information.  GIS operates on data primarily bearing a relationship to space which is inclusive of any data about things and events that occur in nature.

Historically, GIS was primarily a map-based system.  Today GIS is changing into systems of engagement and systems of insight.  Industrial companies want to reach entire organizations with easy access to spatial data to get full awareness of their business or operation.

For example, the recent increase in network complexity in the industrial segments such as renewables, microgrids, prosumers, electric vehicles, and, energy storage systems are causing companies to adopt GIS solutions to have access and to better understand the infrastructure data.

The GIS market is a substantial one that has shown modest growth since ARC’s last global market research study on this technology.  ARC expects the market to grow at a decent rate during the forecast period, despite political crises and currency fluctuation in the world economy.

Strategic Issues
To survive and grow in this market, GIS suppliers face a number of challenges that require new thinking, business models, and strategies.  This report provides answers to strategic questions, such as:

  • How can suppliers increase their value proposition?
  • How are suppliers addressing Big Data, cloud GIS, and mobile devices?
  • Where are the growth markets and industries?
  • Who is delivering core GIS versus applications on top of core GIS?
