Network Centric Operations, Syclo and ESRI

This week in Sydney, Australia I taught a class on Network Centric Operations.  I covered the convergence of enterprise mobility, GIS (global information systems), business intelligence and M2M (machine to machine) technologies in ways that helps field service managers have real-time visibility into their field service operations.  This convergence requires news ways of thinking, managing, process re-engineering and news ways of integrating these solutions into a unified view.

The recent announcement by Syclo about their integration and partnership with GIS software ESRI fits right into vision.
