Autodesk and Oracle will provide customers with complete solutions for the creation and sharing of geospatial data within workgroups and across entire organizations.
The companies will collaborate on software bundles, technology integration, sales, training and customer support.
As a result of this strategic relationship between the two industry leaders, Autodesk is now offering two new bundles for U.S. government organizations that feature Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition with Oracle Spatial 10g: Autodesk Map 3D with Oracle Database 10g bundle, for creating maps and associated data with Autodesk Map 3D software and storing them in a relational database, and Autodesk Web Mapping with Oracle Database 10g bundle, which features Autodesk MapGuide Enterprise software for sharing maps and data stored in an Oracle database over the web.
“With the combined power of these two specialized bundles, organizations will be able to implement Oracle Database’s spatial capabilities more easily and cost effectively,” said Lisa Campbell, vice president, Autodesk Geospatial. “This combination of spatially-enabled infrastructure software from Autodesk and Oracle can significantly enhance collaboration, reduce process redundancies and streamline systems management for workgroups enterprise-wide.”
Autodesk is committed to creating open solutions that enable interoperability and streamlined sharing between different technologies to create and store CAD, asset, GIS and other enterprise data. As a result, users can integrate design and geospatial information and functionality with other systems such as asset management, customer information and enterprise resource planning systems.
“Companies are able to achieve complete interoperability with Oracle’s open, non-proprietary spatial data structure,” said John Gray, group vice president of North America ISV Channels at Oracle. “Combined with Autodesk’s proven commitment to open systems, users can now fully realize the value of their spatial data for a variety of business functions beyond mapping.”
