How We Help

Architecture & Design

For your cloud solution to succeed, you need a strong understanding of the technical, functional, and utilization requirements. Our team offers lightweight and 2-day options to help you identify deployment patterns, optimize your system’s performance, and minimize cost. We follow the latest best practices and work within your constraints to meet your organizational objectives.

Cloud Environment Setup & Facilitation

You shouldn’t have to invest in a solution that doesn't fit your needs. We will set up a tailored solution in your preferred provider (Amazon, Azure and Google Cloud), while accommodating your billing preferences, performance objectives, and fault tolerance requirements. Although your solution will be tailored for your organization, we always follow industry best practices and work within your budget.

Cloud Migration

If you need to move your data to the cloud or from one service to another, your first step is to understand the deployment, architecture, and dependencies of your current system. Our team helps you create an informed migration strategy that minimizes disruption to production, workflows, and functionality.

Enterprise Implementation

Implementing OnPrem or Cloud Services requires extensive planning and decision making to execute correctly the first time. GISinc offers a variety of services to help you set up, implement, and maintain cloud environments for entities of all types.

Managed Services

You don’t have to manage your system on your own. GISinc assumes administrative responsibility for the servers, including operating system management (e.g., patches, upgrades), security and access controls, and general system health management. You will receive monthly reviews and action plans to keep your system running smoothly. 

Server Monitoring

To maintain the health of your system, you need to track server performance. We can make this easier for you by implementing a server monitoring solution developed by us, Esri, or a recommended third party. These system monitoring solutions help you identify and resolve underlying issues between scheduled reviews before a problem arises. 

Periodic Software Upgrade

Keeping up with technology changes doesn’t have to be costly or overwhelming. We can include annual software updates within our standard services. These typically include one primary software (e.g., Esri, Cityworks), but we also work to accommodate client requests.

Ad Hoc Support

If you need more support, we are happy to accommodate your needs as your budget allows. Our flexible ad hoc services can include platform configuration, data migration, automation, knowledge transfer, and more. We’ll provide you the support you need to achieve your mission, whatever it may be.

How One Organization Saved Money and Increased their Capabilities Using Cloud Software

It can be difficult to get the most out of your Esri investment if your existing GIS system is outdated, inefficient, or a poor fit for your business. 

Recently, a client reached out to us for help migrating from their on-premise system to a cloud-hosted solution. They wanted GISinc to maintain the system, so they could focus on providing more support to their growing GIS user community.

After meeting with the client to determine the requirements of the new enterprise deployment, we designed a new solution using Amazon Web Services (AWS). We then migrated the current system to a new AWS cloud-hosted environment, performed testing, documented all configurations, and worked side-by-side with stakeholders to make the transition as seamless as possible.

Switching to the cloud not only saved the client money but also provided increased reliability, convenience, and security. With their new solution, the client can:

  • Focus efforts on expanding the use of their GIS to additional departments using Esri’s ArcGIS Enterprise Portal
  • Leverage continuous monitoring, regular auditing, and controlled access to their GIS cloud environment 
  • Reduce dependency on on-premise hardware
  • Scale their current bandwidth up or down as needed 
  • Update their new system as needed and patch to the latest version of Esri ArcGIS to maximize software capability

Ready to take advantage of all the cloud has to offer? Give GISinc a call today and we’ll create a custom solution for you.
