Seminar Description:
Recent news about aging infrastructure reveal failing bridges, sinkholes under highways and reports of a US$ 1.6 trillion price-tag over five years. Yet the ‘problem’ is not insurmountable. Geospatial technology can address the problem. Technology can be applied for inspection, inventory, prioritization, designing, tracking and implementing solutions for infrastructure problems. This seminar will focus on aging infrastructure and relay important information for applying geospatial infrastructure solutions. Attendees will get to know where we are in addressing a critical societal need, and where we go next.

Session: Scenario Planning for Utility GIS
Speaker:  Potriadian Subramanian, Infosys
Co-presenters:  Debanjan Chakraborty, Infosys Technologies Limited; Sachin Kumar, Infosys
Date:  April 22, 2009 
Time:  09:00 - 09:45 EST

Session Description:
Infosys recommends a Scenario Planning approach, a method used for long-term adoption and flexibility to identify Utility Geographic Information System needs. It is a powerful method to create, communicate, deliberate, debate and evolve high level business needs to impact day-to-day workflow. It serves as a dashboard for companies to tie to the balanced scorecard. In addition, it helps the utility define detailed requirements. It is also a framework that enables inputs from the company, utility managers, users, GI science experts, system integrators and tool vendors.
