Shell expands relationship with ESRI worldwide

Contract renewal extends GIS framework to a ‘corporate spatial data infrastructure’.

Shell International Exploration and Production B.V has expanded its relationship with ESRI whereby Shell units worldwide can access all of ESRI’s software products. The original deal was signed four years ago (Oil ITJ Vol. 6 N° 7).

Corporate infrastructure

Shell uses GIS technology to integrate and visualize complex business information from different sources and produce maps of assets around the world. The GIS framework is being extended into a corporate spatial data infrastructure in which any authorized user on the corporate Intranet will have access to a one-stop portal integrating GIS layers, documents, and company databases. The global agreement allows Shell to deploy and support ESRI software throughout its organization.

Whole enchilada

The enterprise solution comprises ESRI’s full line of software including the ArcGIS family of desktop (ArcView, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo) and server (ArcIMS, ArcSDE, and ArcGIS Server) products. Support is provided by dedicated Shell staff and ESRI distributors covering the multiple time zones of Shell’s global business.
