Data management

Data Management

Work on large programmes involves extensive revisions and the need to integrate data from a variety of sources. In addition data needs to be distributed and reviewed in a secure environment, with effective version control and role specific security. The time and date on which the information was created is often needed to validate revisions to the planned programme plan or financial assumptions.

Integrating survey data into a central GIS enabled database makes it easy to manage, analyse, share and re-use data with clients and partners resulting in cost and time savings.

Asset Management

Management of buildings and infrastructure assets becomes much easier with location as a common reference. The Asset Manager needs to analyse portfolios and allocate capital to achieve an effective balance of risk, maximise return on investment and ensure compliance with legislation.
