Enterprise Integration

Enable greater flexibility and agility integrating information and processes.

Case Study
Virgin Media Implements GIS to Expand Fiber-based Services

Needing to consolidate its disparate legacy systems and disconnected data sources, Virgin Media implemented a unified GIS-based inventory system to streamline its operations and planning, digitize its network data holdings, expand its fiber-based services, and grow its market share.

Our solutions support wide access to enterprise records and agile integration of data and processes.

A key advantage of our solution is the flexibility it affords operators in accessing and using its records and capabilities. This is achieved through open data storage, support for interoperability standards, and the provision of interfaces. The combination provides users with rapid access to definitive data, direct from its source. Crucially, it also simplifies information and process integration with other business platforms to provide greater insight, streamlined operations, accelerated information flows, automation, and enhanced capabilities, such as support for end-to-end operations through integration with NRM/OSS platforms.


Benefits

End-to-End Operations

Integrate with NRM to synchronize planned work, run bi-directional queries, and deliver composite capabilities within the GIS.

Expedited Deployment

Leverage our advanced telecoms model, interoperability capabilities, and standardized interfaces to speed integration with key platforms.

Increased Agility

Harness the flexibility afforded by open data storage in Oracle, OGC/ISO open geospatial web services, and NGOSS and eTOM support.

Consolidation

Consolidation issues often arise as a business grows. Intergraph G/Technology and Fiber Optic Works address common challenges operators face, whether expanding by acquisition or organic growth, including duplicated, fragmented or inconsistent process, data, and standards spread across multiple systems, sites, or businesses.

Our solution provides a single definite source for all network inventory data and the means to introduce and enforce consistency across work practices, processes, design standards, and documentation. It has a proven record in consolidation; one project alone resolved 30 separate systems built on six different GIS technologies into a single unified database of more than 25 million objects comprising in excess of 200 million components.

Enterprise Interoperability

We provide comprehensive tools for maximizing access to enterprise data to enable its widest application across the business and to enable our solutions to adapt to customer’s current and future requirements. This flexibility is achieved through support for interoperability interfaces and highly effective data publishing capabilities.

The core GIS platform, G/Technology, uses open data storage in Oracle, which provides direct access to any authorized Oracle client application. This is supplemented by support for a range of interoperability interfaces, including generic standards for location-based records (such as ISO/OGC GML, WMS and WFS), as well as standards that model telecoms operation including the New Generation Operational Support Systems (NGOSS) and Enhanced Telecom Operations Map (eTOM).

We also offer specialized capabilities for managing and sharing massive imagery data sets, such as aerial photography and LiDAR point clouds.

ERP Integration

Intergraph G/Technology supports the rich version management, analysis, and reporting capabilities required to model and manage engineering life cycles, including coordination with other business-critical platforms such as OSS/NRM, ERP, WAMS, and MWM for field operations.

Direct coordination of process and sharing of information between systems enables the business to remove disconnected, duplicated, and contradictory processes, which delivers significant benefits. Operators can enhance safety, save money, and expedite work while improving the accuracy and currency of their records.

As one of the most widely used ERP platform, we have developed an interface module that connects Intergraph G/Technology to SAP to simplify the integration and management of core IT processes and business functions, including asset and work management.

Being web services-based, the integration removes the need for point-to-point interfaces which are costly to implement, maintain, and upgrade. It supports a range of integration points with SAP and enables enterprise application integration through any service oriented architecture (SOA)-based integration platform, such as SAP PI, Software AG webMethods, Microsoft BizTalk, and Oracle SOA Suite.

OSS

Our customers operate Fiber Optics Work alongside a range of OSS/NRM platforms, including Amdocs OSS, Visionael OSS (PR), and Ericsson Granite Inventory.

Integrating and coordinating our advanced telecoms GIS with an OSS/NRM system provides numerous significant benefits through process efficiencies, enhanced data quality and currency, extended functional capability, and faster operation.
