The 1Spatial Platform
The 1Spatial Platform is a complete set of Location Master Data Management (LMDM) software components, which combines servers, portals, dashboards, SDKs, APIs, data connectors, business-focused applications and our patented 1Integrate rules engine.
The 1Spatial Platform
The 1Spatial Platform helps ensure your master data is current, complete, consistent and coordinated – and that you can be confident it will remain that way as it evolves. It allows you to master your data on any device, anywhere, anytime. The platform can be deployed as SaaS in the cloud, on-premise, or as a hybrid of both.
The Master Data Management (MDM) discipline has always encapsulated the way we try to help people, and we always give it our unique location twist. So, as our customers work hard to create intelligent data strategies to get their own spatial advantage, we make sure they have access to an intelligent technology platform to enable them to realise that strategy through Location Master Data Management (LMDM) techniques.
We look to embrace automation where possible and ensure that our solutions offer repeatability and traceability to support data stewardship and accountability. We always aim for simple yet intelligent solutions to difficult scenarios, to avoid unnecessary technical complexity. We target the typical, not the exceptional, to maximise value when addressing data accuracy and uniformity.
The 1Spatial Platform includes:
- SaaS Portals - such as 1Data Gateway
- Rules Engine and APIs - for example 1Integrate
- Location Enabled Apps - including Leakage, PAI and Ecology Surveys
- SDKs - such as our Location Mobile App Platform (LMAP)
We enable customers to make evidence-based decisions and have confidence in their data and outcomes that they deliver.
The Data Ecosystem
Data is often collected and stored in silos. What we help our customers achieve through the 1Spatial Platform is an integrated data system - an ecosystem where data can be shared, and customers therefore can save significant time and money on having to collect data themselves which already exists elsewhere (internally or externally).
1Spatial’s LMDM approach allows us to connect all elements of the data ecosystem together because we put data governance and data quality at the heart our platform.
Data Management and Data Governance
However, in order to rely on this shared data, there first needs to be a mechanism to validate its accuracy.
Data is often captured and stored in different standards and formats and at differing levels of data quality so needs to be checked before it can be trusted.
First of all, we have the data sources which come in and out of the platform. i.e., Ordnance Survey Data, 3D data and other data types. We then bring in the data standards which the data needs to conform to. By using our automated rules engine 1Integrate, we can audit the data, clean it and ensure it is compliant before synchronising it across the data ecosystem.
Data never stands still. So we also use the 1Spatial Platform to update the changes in data before it is allowed to enter the data ecosystem and this ensures our customers’ data remains of good quality and always compliant.
Finally, the 1Spatial Platform enables our customers to analyse the data, feeling confident to use and rely on it for making business critical and lifesaving decisions. They can use this data through one of our business apps such as HPMS or TMPA or share it back to their systems or partners such as Esri or SAP.
SaaS, On-Premise or Hybrid
In addition to making sure the 1Spatial Platform has the right technical functionality, we also make sure our customers can access it in a fast, secure and cost-effective way. Cloud computing has helps us accelerate in a short space of time, customers can get access to our software and tools in the cloud almost instantly! However if the situation demands the deployment may be better suited within their own secure enterprise infrastructure. We have designed our software so that all of our Location Master Data Management (LMDM) components are built to support this range of architectures.
All components are accessible not only via an intuitive web user interface but also via RESTful APIs. This allows the components to integrate seamlessly with not only other 1Spatial Platform components, but also other third-party software components as part of a wider deployment, whether locally or via the cloud. This offers great flexibility in creating solutions that are built from systems of systems, where our platform components can work alongside other organisations platform components.
1Data Gateway provides our customers with a self-service portal for spatial validation, processing and analytics. It Is the way our customers manage their external supply chain or internal users in a smart, simple and controlled way to deliver validation, correction and data enhancement processes.
1Data Gateway provides our customers and their supply chains with intuitive workflows to submit, validate and review data throughout the supply chain. Dashboards allow users to review the data quality statistics that are gathered whenever their data supply chain processes are run, for each of individual or groups of projects, supporting the management and continual improvement of the processes.
With unlimited users and cloud-based deployment, 1Data Gateway works for many of our customers, of all types and size of deployment.
1Data Gateway provides them with secure access so that only users they have authorised for connection can access the system and job allocation ensures they can only access work they’ve been allocated.
1Integrate brings the power of our patented rules engine to your data, delivering automated data validation, cleaning, transformation and enhancement.
Using the power of rules-based validation, our customers ensure their newly captured or legacy data is up to the standards needed, with consistency being maintained in data across their workflows.
With our ‘no code’ approach to rules definition our customers are empowered to create rules to transform and enhance their data to keep up with evolving business needs and standards. The components allow them to adopt rules-based, machine learning and knowledge engineering approaches to make this happen. No data is right forever, requirements evolve as does our customers need to respond to newly captured data and methods.
1Integrate has the capability to support multiple nodes as required, allowing it to scale flexibly with your needs whilst ensuring you are only using and paying for resources as required.
1Spatial Solutions are a collection of business-focussed apps that help address the targeted challenges in our customers’ organisations across a range of verticals. They leverage our customer’s data and are designed to improve operations, gain new insight and enhance services in government, utilities and transport.
Whether our customers’ mobile workforce are GIS users or not, apps built with LMAP are intuitive and easy-to-use. LMAP is a framework from which we quickly deliver highly flexible, solution-targeted spatial apps. The apps are designed around customers’ business needs and created to deliver value by targeting specific and defined business processes or challenges and applying rules where required. Data sources and data formats within our customers organisations vary, and requirements change. LMAP fully integrates with a wide range of data sources including GIS, finance, job and asset management.
