Envista Corporation Relies on Oracle® Database 11g with Oracle Spatial to Power Web-based Infrastructure Project Coordination Solution
Envista Enables Municipalities, Utilities and Highway Agencies to Exchange and Synchronize Construction, Maintenance, and Shovel-ready Projects
Redwood Shores, CA - April 23, 2009
Envista Corporation, the provider of web-based software for infrastructure project coordination, has deployed Oracle Database 11g with Oracle Spatial as the foundation for its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) citing Oracle software’s geospatial, high performance, scalability, and security capabilities, Oracle announced today.
SaaS Platform for Infrastructure Project Coordination
Envista’s map-driven solution enables municipalities, counties, highway agencies and utilities to manage construction, maintenance, and Shovel-ready project schedules using the web-based technology.
With Oracle Database 11g and Oracle Spatial, Envista's software can support multiple forms of customer data, such as text and geographic information systems (GIS) formats. This data is converted into geo-coded project information to provide a common user platform for all stakeholders in a local area.
Envista provides a centralized place for towns, cities, DOTs, water, electric, and gas utilities to:
Exchange and synchronize project schedules real time;
Discover Shovel-ready projects, project conflicts, street moratoriums, and opportunities; and,
Resolve conflicts and effectively plan for future infrastructure projects.
Envista technology helps these entities to schedule projects more effectively, helping to reduce traffic congestion and eliminate costly, redundant street cuts.
Launched in April 2008, Envista now hosts over 100,000 built infrastructure projects.
Key to Envista are Oracle Database 11g and Oracle Spatial’s location features. Oracle supports a wide range of applications including automated mapping/facilities management and GIS, wireless location services, and location-enabled business intelligence.
“Oracle Database 11g’s wide ranging functionality allows us to concentrate on the business functions critical to infrastructure renewal and not on the low-level handling of spatial and non-spatial data,” said Jayanta Mukhodpadhyay, Vice President-Engineering, Envista Corporation. “To date, our platform has seamlessly supported user and data growth and delivered the high performance expected by our customers spanning major municipalities, department of transportation agencies, and utilities.”
