Business insights are connected to the question of where

Most data points are linked to physical locations and times. But location isn't just the common thread connecting disparate data sources and breaking down silos—often it provides the most transformative insights. Leading organizations tap location analytics to solve business problems and uncover new opportunities.

A geographic information system (GIS) is the software technology that provides a framework to manage, visualize, analyze, and ultimately understand the significance of spatial data. Rooted in science, GIS helps businesses gain actionable insight by integrating all types of data. Location intelligence, powered by GIS, transforms businesses and organizations across a wide range of industries.
