In line with some of themes of this years IEO symposium (more details to follow) here is information regarding a webinar from ESRI
Esri Ireland Presents “Building the Business Case for GIS”
For many years now those of us involved with GIS have promoted the benefits of this decision support technology. For the last 10-15 years, economic growth has enabled us to grow the usage of GIS. However we are now in different times, and during this recession all services are being driven by the need for accountability, transparency, efficiency, sustainability and ‘value for money’. This places greater emphasis than ever on getting buy in from your organizations management and stakeholders into the benefits of GIS.
