Intergraph SG&I stores geospatial, engineering digital assets in cloud


Widen’s DAM system gives Hexagon division ability to store, distribute marketing info to users in 12 countries

Geospatial and engineering software maker Intergraph Security, Government & Infrastructure (SG&I), said Friday all its marketing resources – design files, imagery, multimedia files and geospatial information – will move into a cloud-based digital asset management system, allowing employees in 12 countries real-time access.

Huntsville, Ala.-based Intergraph SG&I said Widen Enterprises, Inc., a software as a service provider in Madison, Wis., will consolidate its digital marketing asset library to avoid costs related to replacing lost images and videos, and added costs for hardware, software and upgrades.

“As a global company, we were in need of a solution that allowed all of our team members to easily access the same files in one location,” said Claudia Blackwell, Intergraph’s executive manager of marketing operations.

The new, centralized system will improve workflows for employees by showing exactly where each marketing asset is located and stem the risk of loss that comes from on-premises software.

Intergraph is a division of Intergraph Corporation, which is a subsidiary of design, measurement, and visualization technology giant, Hexagon AB, which on Monday divested its car parts manufacturing business EBP Olofström AB as part of Hexagon’s intent to focus all resources to its core business of measurement technologies.

Intergraph SG&I sells geospatial-based software, including ERDAS technologies, to the public safety and security, defense and intelligence, government, transportation, photogrammetry, and utilities and communications industries.

Intergraph Government Solutions (IGS) is an independent subsidiary for SG&I’s U.S. federal business.

Intergraph Corporation also operates its Process, Power & Marine (PP&M) and Security division, which manufactures and markets engineering software for the design, construction, operation and data management of plants, ships and offshore facilities.
