RailTel Corporation of India Ltd., a Central Government PSU under the Ministry of Railways and Esri India, the Geographic Information System (GIS) Software & Solutions provider, have announced it has signed an MoU to provide Cloud-based GIS Solutions to their users in the ‘Government Sector’.

Esri India has already developed a unique product called Indo ArcGIS for Indian government customers. Apart from GIS technology products, the Indo ArcGIS suite includes industry-specific solution products for Disaster Management, Forest Management, Land Records, Electric Utility Management, Property Tax Management and many more.

With Esri India and RailTel’s partnership, ‘Indo ArcGIS on Cloud’ would now be available on RailTel Cloud, giving customers the much-needed advantage of scalability, agility and cost-efficiency. Joint offerings would include software, cloud infrastructure, and related services. This will help government organizations reduce costs and complexity by moving from on-premises infrastructure to Cloud and speed up the use of GIS in their initiatives and programs, it said in a statement.

Talking about it, Aruna Singh, CMD, RailTel, said, “Geospatial Infrastructure is fast becoming the backbone of many new strategic initiatives of both central and state governments in India. RailTel with its 2 Tier III data centers and over 61000 Kms of Optic Fiber Network is uniquely positioned to support government organizations in deploying their GIS applications on a secure public cloud. With this partnership with Esri India, we intend to offer a reliable, secure and managed GIS Infrastructure for large government programs and projects.”

Agendra Kumar, Managing Director, Esri India, said, “The convergence of GIS and Cloud technology opens new avenues for building the Geospatial Infrastructure in India. The solutions and data products included in Indo ArcGIS are created with the aim to help the government and private organizations solve the most pressing problems of the country effectively with GIS. To facilitate enhanced collaboration and more informed decision-making at a lower cost, we are now offering Indo ArcGIS on Cloud. Our partnership with RailTel will foster accelerated GIS deployment and provide the power of ‘geospatial infrastructure on Cloud’ to our Indo ArcGIS users.”
