IT/GIS managers in both the public and private sector are facing everincreasing pressure to deliver IT services to employees and the public more efficiently. Correspondingly, optimizing the up-time and maintaining access to GIS data has become a primary interest of many GIS managers.

Access to GIS data and decision-making support has become “mission-critical” for organizations around the world.
