Geospatial Resource Management Excels in Today's Demanding Environment

September 2003
Utility Automation;Sep/Oct2003, Vol. 8 Issue 5, p26
Intergraph Corp. has developed Geospatial Resource Management (GRM) systems that can support the geo-based information needs of an entire organization. GRM provides the operational support structure for the many work processes involved in the distribution operations of a utility. It can be thought of as an umbrella, with all the component systems assembled underneath. Utilities and communications companies can implement these systems as whole or in a phased approach. GRM also meets the industry's expectations for work process automation and improvement, system integration, and corporate data sharing. The requisite open architecture of GRM eliminates companies' risk of being stranded in time by proprietary systems that are expensive to grow and maintain. Intergraph's GRM relies on open, off-the-shelf applications that are easily configured, Web enabled, and scalable across an enterprise.
