Integeo's Map Intelligence Reveals Hidden Data Relationships
Sydney, 31 May, 2005: Spatial business intelligence company Integeo today announced that its Map Intelligence product had been judged Best of Show - Products and Services, by a panel of journalists and industry professionals attending CeBIT 2005 in Sydney.
Map Intelligence bridges the gap between business intelligence (BI) software and geographic information systems (GIS), allowing non-expert users to create information-rich and interactive maps from the contents of digital dashboards or spreadsheets.
No programming knowledge is required to use Map Intelligence, minimising the costs of developing a full blown GIS application.
Integeo Managing Director Peter Rossiter said that business analysts and other non-technical users can use the applications generated by Map Intelligence to conduct in-depth spatial analysis with a few clicks of the mouse, moving seamlessly between the business intelligence view and spatial visualizations.
Map Intelligence allows organisations to make the most of their staffs expertise, without needing to pull in technical resources every time. For instance, a specialist police officer could analyse the relationships between data and locations of criminal activity without specialist spatial training.
CeBIT Managing Director Jackie Taranto said, The judges thought Map Intelligence was a standout product among the hundreds of exhibitors because of the extremely clever way it can take complex business intelligence or even an Excel spreadsheet and reveal the hidden relationships between data.
Integeos Australian customers include Northern Territory Police, Australian Customs Service and the Australian Department of Employment and Workplace Relations.
Forge Group CEO Peter Rossiter said, Our philosophy has always been that if you can take something that has been extremely complex, but which users need, and make it simple, you have a winning product. Map Intelligence is such a product and I am honored that the Australian media and our industry peers at CeBIT - as well as our own customers worldwide - have recognized these qualities.
