The challenges of GIS project management

Geographic information has moved out of the sphere of specialists and has penetrated the information systems of organizations. This democratization is accompanied by new challenges in terms of integration, deployment and cross-cutting.

The response to the needs of non-specialist and ever-increasing numbers of users requires permanent adaptation and agility for GIS. These needs evolve with the businesses and working methods: refocusing and outsourcing, collaboration, mutualization, mobility.

Faced with these challenges, the use of project management assistance allows the optimization of the strategy and the means of the GIS, and access to specialized expertise that does not exist internally.
