With the widespread adoption of cloud technology, Cadcorp has extended its cloud services to include its SIS Desktop product.
In the current circumstances, one significant benefit of using SIS Desktop in the cloud is increased accessibility; Cadcorp reported that it’s quick and easy to set up for remote and flexible working because no specialist hardware or resources are needed. Users can access SIS Desktop as a virtual desktop application or within a web browser on a variety of platforms and on any device.
The SIS Desktop cloud service includes support, cloud storage, hosted map data and an application health check with monitoring resources. SIS Desktop in the cloud integrates with other online services and is maintained and upgraded by Cadcorp to keep it current with the latest software service releases. Cadcorp is also offering a cloud migration path for customers to migrate their existing on-premise SIS Desktop licences into the cloud.
Nick Summers, technical services manager, Cadcorp, said, “In the current situation where GIS professionals are working remotely, accessing software in a cloud environment is ideal. Where GIS technology is housed on-premise, some users may find access slow or limited. Delivering SIS Desktop in the cloud will help housing providers to maximise their mapping and geospatial productivity.”
