The Cloud... Empowering End-User Choice

We use cloud computing to provide GIS users with the power to easily provision GIS applications and ultimately help them avoid vendor lock-in. By providing production-ready environments in a pay-as-you-go model, customers have on-demand access to enterprise GIS applications from many different vendors. Done using it or it didn't work for you? Okay, shut it down and stop paying. Compare this model to the "traditional" sales cycle of large software vendors, where buyers must trust marketing claims, pay up-front licensing fees, and independently procure hardware before the implementation even begins; we believe people will almost unanimously find the cloud deployment model a more desirable and user-friendly approach to software implementation.


Lucky You
So, what's the moral of the story? Things are getting much easier for end-users of GIS technology. The capabilities of cloud computing simplify the long, daunting tasks of installing and maintaining complex GIS solutions. Now end-users will be able to complete extensive tasks like procuring hardware, installing servers in a data center, configuring networks, installing operations systems and installing GIS applications in a matter of minutes, rather than months.

If you are a GIS professional stuck with an IT manager's burden... consider the cloud your ticket to freedom.
