Esri India (a joint venture between NIIT Technologies Limited, and Esri Inc.), country’s leading Geographic Information System (GIS) Software & Solutions provider today announced a strategic partnership with MapmyIndia, India's leader in quality digital map data, Navigation, Tracking, Location Based Services, and GIS based applications.

As a part of the partnership both the Companies will collaborate to offer cutting edge GIS solutions along with rich map data to enterprise and Government customers. Commenting on this strategic partnership, Agendra Kumar, President, Esri India, said, “Earlier Government sector and industries like Retail, FMCG, Banking and Insurance, were not able to fully leverage the benefits of GIS due to lack of data. This partnership combines technology with content which opens up endless possibilities to drive value across all these segments.”

This new and powerful platform is custom made for the Indian environment. MapmyIndia maps will now be available through Esri’s ArcGIS Online (AGOL), a cloud based GIS platform that can be readily adopted as the mapping platform of choice by organizations. As part of this association MapmyIndia will also become an authorized value added reseller for Esri’s GIS Software products which will be bundled with MapmyIndia Maps. Rakesh Verma, Managing Director, MapmyIndia said, “Our collaboration with Esri India is not just a win-win situation for us but also for the users which includes corporates, Governments and individuals. This powerful platform will equip them with GIS capabilities and comprehensive map data thereby increasing efficiency and productivity. I see this alliance blending India’s best maps and world’s best GIS technology, as having a strong enabling impact on the way and the scale of GIS usage in India.” Businesses and Government users will now be able to better leverage the Maps provided by MapmyIndia for the Indian geography through AGOL platform. This will enable quicker development and deployment of GIS and location based applications thereby helping organizations in better governance and decision-making.
