00:01Our next demonstration builds on the idea of making mapping easy for everyone in your organization.

00:07We do this by providing web apps that integrate with your enterprise systems…

00:11…systems like Microsoft SharePoint and IBM Cognos.

00:15To show you how this is done, please welcome Jo Fraley.

00:21Thanks, John.

00:25As Jack mentioned earlier, many parts of an organization want to get their data onto a map.

00:32This first example is using SharePoint.

00:34Many of you use it to manage content and collaborate within your organization.

00:40A marketing department within a utility company has a list, and this list contains address information.

00:46So what's the first thing they want to do?

00:49Put it onto a map.

00:51Instead of requesting the GIS department to do that for them, they can do it themselves.

00:57Stepping through a workflow, they can specify the locator, the address field, the coordinate field…

01:04…some additional options, and they can kick off this workflow.

01:08Now, the list can be added to the map.

01:13This application has a configurable ribbon interface that allows you to add basemaps from ArcGIS Online…

01:19…as well as add additional content.

01:22Now, all this information makes the map a little bit difficult to read, but we can resolve this using clustering.

01:29Zooming in, our clusters change based on proximity, and I can identify a particular location.

01:36Another interesting way to look at this data is a heat map.

01:41We can see areas of high concentration in white, and less in blue.

01:46But we also want to know, are these customers within our service territory?

01:51We can connect to our enterprise GIS server and add that service territory to the map.

01:58This capability is available today with ArcGIS Server and allows all departments to get their data onto a map.

02:07The second example is a web application integrating ArcGIS with IBM Cognos.

02:13This business intelligence dashboard shows overall performance for the distribution of meters for a water utility.

02:20We can see cost and usage trends.

02:24We can ask questions of the map and do comparisons based on geography.

02:32Querying the business intelligence data, the dashboard will update for the selected area.

02:38These are just two examples that are available now and bring mapping to everyone.
