Convergence of GIS, EDS, and BIM Drive Smart Cities, Grids, and Infrastructure

New ARC research on Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) for Smart Cities and Grids covers key solutions enabling smart infrastructure. The strategic value of this ARC Market Analysis research stems from the key roles played by visualization and design tools within smart cities, utility and telecommunications service providers, transportation and transit, and other public works use cases, which help ensure success in new construction projects, successful optimization of ongoing operations and maintenance activities, and successful cross-industry and multi-stakeholder cross-industry successes. Smart infrastructure is an essential enabler of the full industrial data fabric that will be required by all asset-intensive industries and all B2B supply chains if society is to be successful in meeting the energy transition and industrial sustainability challenges that lie ahead.

"GIS, BIM, and EDS for critical infrastructure are at the forefront of AI-driven improvements that increasingly will be supporting, through utilities and smart cities, all asset-intensive industries and manufacturers in their efforts to be successful during energy transition and in their drive for industrial sustainability. Leaders in GIS are enabling important contributions to digital transformation for their customers, rather than merely making an electronic version of a map with no fundamental process improvements beyond reduction in usage of paper," according to Peter Manos, Director of Research and key author of ARC's GIS Software for Smart Cities and Grids Market Research.
