Defining, planning & implementing an Asset Management Program in a phased process, leveraging existing GIS efforts to maximize success and control costs, doing more with less.
Asset management is typically viewed as a large and fiscally expensive program. It does not need to be. The ability to leverage advances in software and data interoperability create the very real environment for a cost effective and robust asset management program. With a well thought out approach and leverage of past and existing efforts it is possible to do “more with less”.
To achieve this, the program needs to be properly defined, expatiations set and managed, and a phased approach built upon previous successes must be utilized. This presentation will begin with defining what asset management is, what an asset management program should be and how the program can be defined and developed specifically for the entity. The presentation will then move to how a strategically and politically driven approach is developed so that quick success can be realized and built upon. The most logical approach may not always be the most advantageous in securing future funding, therefore an approach that allows for some quick returns while supporting the overall strategy can be developed. The presentation will also discuss how past, current and future GIS initiatives can be and should be centric to an asset management program.

JMT Technology Group developed ADAMobile, a mobile solution that enables an efficient and effective inventory of pedestrian facilities based on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design. Built on Esri ArcGIS Mobile 10, ADAMobile allows users to collect data in the field and provide real-time updates to the office. JMT is currently using ADAMobile to perform a field inventory in Delaware on behalf of the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT).
This presentation will cover the successes and challenges involved in developing the DelDOT pedestrian facilities data model; configuring the mobile application and collecting data in the field; synchronizing operational data between the field and the office; prioritizing features; and displaying the results in a web application.

A large majority of organizational information has a spatial component. In government, most documents are directly related to geographic points, such as addresses and parcels of land. All governmental organizations accumulate massive amounts of information, much of which is statutorily required to be saved indefinitely. In many cases, there lies a major disconnect between GIS and ECM, that it becomes impossible to maximize efficiencies. By integrating GIS and ECM, all of the information and documents can become useful tools, rather than archived files, and can result in better organizational decisions.
Tools now make it possible to reconnect these two systems and fully realize the potential synergies of using GIS and ECM together resulting in queries and analysis of information providing a complete and a 360˚ picture.
This session will focus on successfully addressing integration between GIS and ECM along with a live demonstration of a real life scenario.
