Adelaide, South Australia (PRWEB) September 7, 2007
VisionStream, an information integration environment that leverages the power of GIS, is the web-based solution for managing distributed geospatial assets and information in the Oil and Gas, Utilities, and Land Information Management industries.
VisionStream represents a breakthrough technology in its ability to easily capture information in real time and its provision of a simple to use, geographically empowered user interface. The end result is a software business solution that facilitates rapid and secure information retrieval, when and where you need it.
In many industries today, we see operations that are increasingly geographically dispersed. This modern aspect of business adds increased cost and information management complexities. The end result is often information sharing inefficiencies and isolated "information partitions" as different geographical locations develop their own redundant functional areas. Adding to the problem is the increasing trend to out-source functional areas, areas which ultimately become staffed and managed by external companies. All this places strain on information distribution and, more importantly, on information retrieval. It is difficult to expect world-proven best practices and the competitive edge, when the information available to our staff is incomplete or out of date.
VisionStream is designed to solve these problems by seamlessly capturing all information types, contractual documents, e-mails, reports, and engineering drawings for example, and organizing it in a way that facilitates easy, intuitive and intelligent access. It captures this information automatically or, in other words, with minimal manual involvement. Your business intelligence is then dynamically accessible through powerful geographical selection methodologies and viewable across the web in the VisionStream document viewer.
Unlike previous GIS solutions that required manual linking with information that soon became out-dated as external documents were deleted, replaced or changed, VisionStream provides a robust and dynamic integration environment. VisionStream includes full-scale document management capabilities so version control, revision management, workflow processes and document security and access control are a prepackaged part of the solution.
VisionStream will be shown by eDocuMAN who will participate at GITEX Technology Week 2007, under the umbrella of Dubai Internet City, one of the largest managed ICT free zones in the world. The region's premier IT and telecom industry event will be held from 8-13 September at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
