5 Virtual Communications Tips for Small Business Owners

Mary Ramos's curator insight, September 14, 2013 2:46 AM

I think it's interesting the way small business owners and large business owners differentiate at handling the same things. One thing may be more of importance to a small owner than an owner with a larger company. It could also be the lack of experience that small companies may have opposed to a larger company who deals with larger amounts of things on a day to day basis.

GE, Google Launch Mapping Partnership for Smart Grid, Energy | Greentech Media

GE, Google Launch Mapping Partnership for Smart Grid, Energy | Greentech Media | Where and what | Scoop.it

The two companies announced Tuesday morning that they’re integrating Google Maps data into GE's Smallworld electrical, telecommunications and gas applications -- a set of geospatial analytics tools and software that GE has adapted for Web, mobile and desktop use. On the smart grid front, GE is building Google’s mapping content into its grid distribution management system (DMS) and outage management system (OMS), and it’s also tapping Google’s Android platform to augment its existing mobile products, mainly to give them better, more information-rich maps.

 

This amounts to a major announcement in the relatively small world of utility geospatial information system (GIS) vendors, to be sure. Today’s market is dominated by such players as Esri and Intergraph, in-house products from grid giants like Alstom and Siemens, and up-and-comers like startup Space-Time Insight.

 

GTM Research has predicted U.S. utilities will spend between $110 million and $180 million on GIS upgrades and replacements from 2010 to 2015, with projects ranging from the high end, such as Southern California Edison’s $71 million upgrade of its 10-year-old GIS, to a few hundred thousand dollars for small municipal or cooperative utilities.

 

“Google's rich mapping content will form an integral part of GE's solutions, strengthening the existing geospatial capabilities of GE's Smallworld products by providing out-of-the-box base mapping as well as visualization and analytics capabilities,” according to the announcement.

Google has made an ethical decision to join GE in going green. Google is placing it's rich mapping content into the realm of smart grids to allow GE to grow and expand their electrical, telecommunications, and gas application. Google made this decision by using the ethical decision-making guide and deciding that it was not illegal, it did not violate company or professional standards, and that it only affected others positively.
