Convergence: Enabling Geospatial Workflows

The convergence of key technologies like cloud computing and big data have far reaching implications that can certainly change the world. Big data can offer valuable insights to offer competitive advantage and thus add to the revenues. On the other hand, cloud computing promises to increase productivity while reducing costs. With organisations moving towards creating their own cloud environments, it presents an excellent opportunity to use cloud computing as a tool that supports big data projects. The half-day session on Convergence: Enabling Geospatial Workflows will look at how the convergence of key technologies is enabling better geospatial workflows. Some of the major aspects that the session will touch upon include:


  • » The use of Cloud Computing for enhanced geospatial workflows
  • » Turning big data into a competitive asset
  • » How the convergence of various technologies is enabling geospatial workflows
