I recently had the opportunity to share Clarita's experience in integrating GIS and asset data with our client Parks Victoria at 1Spatial's FME World Tour event in Brisbane. This solution proved the value of FME in getting accurate asset information to the right people, at the right time to improve asset management performance.

Parks Victoria is responsible for managing approximately 100,000 assets across a diverse estate of more than 4 million hectares including 3,000 land and marine parks and reserves.

In order to extract greater business value from assets, reduce risks and improve the operational experience, Clarita was engaged in 2020 to design and implement an enterprise-wide Asset Management Information System using, building on existing IBM and Esri technology investments.

Among the many project objectives, Parks Victoria wanted:

  • Assets created in GIS needed to be reflected in Maximo​
  • Changes to assets in Maximo needed to be reflected back in GIS​
  • These changes are to occur in near-real time

The solution Clarita delivered involved a two-way synchronisation between GIS and Maximo using FME.

This solution meets the challenge of getting accurate asset information to a highly mobile and distributed workforce.
