GIS as a catalyst for business processes

GIS is becoming more and more a central component in the IT industry. Using the example of GEONIS Network Calculation, we will show you how today’s GIS information can be integrated into business processes and make a central contribution to the digitalization of processes.

For a long time, geographic information systems (GIS) were considered a niche area in IT. For this reason, in many organizations the necessary hardware and software was not even located in the IT department.

In recent years the importance of GIS has increased significantly. An important reason for this is the integration of business data from ERP and CRM systems. In connection with this data, new business processes can now be generated that relate data to spatial data. This allows GIS services to be integrated into process chains and business processes to be digitized. GIS is thus increasingly becoming a central component in the IT industry.

A successful example of the digitalization of a business process is the GIS integration of the grid calculation software NEPLAN, which greatly simplifies and accelerates the process of connection applications with photovoltaic systems and electricity consumers.

GIS integration of the network calculation software NEPLAN into GEONIS Network Calculation

The system has been implemented in such a way that the current network information is always read from the GIS for a connection application. At the same time, the already approved applications that are still in planning status are also taken into account. The subsequent calculation returns the results of the calculations directly to the user via a traffic light system. This process is automated to such an extent that “normal” follow-up requests and inquiries can be processed and checked in a fraction of the time. The publication of this application with the GEONIS server makes it possible to make these connection requests available on the Internet. This makes the tests directly available to the applicant. This allows the skilled workers to focus on more complex network calculations and other tasks.

This is just one example of how today’s GIS information can be integrated into business processes and make a central contribution to the digitization of processes.
