ESRI Receives Strong Positive Rating in Leading Analyst Firm's MarketScope Report

Redlands, California - ESRI received a Strong Positive rating, the highest possible, from Gartner, Inc., the leading provider of research and analysis on the global information technology industry. The report, MarketScope for Energy and Utility Geographic Information Systems, by Bradley Williams and Jeff Vining, was published January 26, 2009.

“We believe Gartner’s Strong Positive rating confirms ESRI’s commitment to meeting the needs of the utility industry,” said Bill Meehan, ESRI’s director of utility solutions. “ArcGIS users already reap the benefits of ESRI’s GIS [geographic information system] technology for desktop, mobile, server, and the Web as well as a host of custom applications from our partner network. Our new Small Utility Enterprise License Agreement [SU-ELA] program offers more affordable procurement with unlimited software deployments, maintenance, and training.”

ESRI’s ArcGIS software and Web services enable utilities to link asset information to location data such as facilities to parcels of land, streets, pipes, or wires in a network. Users can capture, store, process, analyze, and render this data to support the electric, gas, water, and wastewater utility industries. Within a GIS, information is layered to illustrate relationships, connections, and patterns that are not obvious in a single dataset, thereby enabling better decisions.
