"HoloMaps provides us with a novel way to collaborate and visualize data providing new insights for our clients beyond traditional mapping tools." said Ben Morley-John, Data & Analytics Lead, Australia at L.E.K. Consulting.

July 27, 2017 – Taqtile, a leading provider of cross-industry, mixed reality software solutions, today announces the addition of L.E.K. Consulting and Utilidata as customers for its HoloMaps Enterprise solution. These customers’ deployments utilize the latest version of that solution. HoloMaps Enterprise is the first 3D mapping product built for Microsoft’s HoloLens that includes data integration and shared experience features, presenting a host of capabilities for geographically related data visualization.

“We are excited to be building on the momentum HoloMaps Enterprise has generated with customers such as PGA Tour and the Cleveland Cavaliers,” said Taqtile co-founder Dirck Schou. “With this release, we’ve been able to address one of the key product requests since HoloMaps launched - powerful tailoring tools which enable our customers to generate custom data visualizations over a variety of map sources and types.”

Both companies mentioned above are focused on a unique use case: L.E.K. Consulting Australia, part of global strategy consulting firm L.E.K., is working with HoloMaps to visualize current behavioural data to better understand and forecast how cities function in the context of future transport and mobility. Utilidata delivered a narrative demonstration of its utilities-focused HoloMaps deployment while at the National Governor’s Association Summer Meeting last week in Providence, Rhode Island.

"HoloMaps provides us with a novel way to collaborate and visualize data providing new insights for our clients beyond traditional mapping tools." said Ben Morley-John, Data & Analytics Lead, Australia at L.E.K. Consulting.

“Utilidata is leveraging Taqtile's HoloMaps Enterprise Platform to illustrate the power of real-time visibility for utilities operating the electric grid,” said Josh Brumberger, Chief Commercial Officer at Utilidata. “As our electric infrastructure transforms to become more intelligent, efficient, and secure, utilities require new tools to help them recognize and respond to changing grid conditions in real time. The Hololens and HoloMaps enable us to present grid intelligence in a novel way that’s clear and compelling – providing the template for how we operate the electric grid of the future.”
