Intergraph's Geospatial Solutions Awarded SAP Validation

HUNTSVILLE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 11, 2002--

Emphasizes Intergraph's commitment to deliver high-quality enterprise geospatial industry solutions

Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions (NASDAQ: INGR) has reinforced its commitment to provide the highest-quality enterprise geospatial solutions by receiving validation of GBC Compliance for its GeoMedia(R) technology from the SAP(R) Industry Business Unit for Utilities. GeoMedia Professional is compliant with SAP R/3 Enterprise(R) and solutions via the latest SAP interface technology, the GIS Connector Package. This enables ERP users across organizations to seamlessly access and experience a new geospatial dimension for their enterprise data, workflows, and processes, allowing organizations to improve customer service and increase competitiveness. Because of the unique data integration features included in GeoMedia technology, geospatial data in virtually any format from the industry's most popular GIS can now be linked with SAP R/3 Enterprise and solutions.

"Validation of compliance with GBC is designed to accelerate implementation efforts for customers as they link geospatial data with their enterprise information systems," said Dr. Walter G. Kienle, Head of Development Asset and Work Management of the Industry Business Unit for Utilities.

The integration of SAP R/3 Enterprise and solutions with GIS augments the functionality and value of both systems by leveraging existing corporate data and extending the type of applications that can use them. Geospatial solutions, based on Intergraph's GeoMedia Professional, expand essential enterprise applications with localization of enterprise resources, spatial analysis, and visualization, regardless of platform - client/server, Web, or distributed computing architectures, including mobile and wireless devices. Organizations in utilities and communications, transportation, and government markets that use SAP solutions for ERP will benefit from the added capability to better identify, interpret, and plan enterprise resources such as physical assets, real estate, network facilities, and objects, in combination with customer, project, address, financial, and land base data.

"The SAP validation gives customers increased confidence in their decision to buy Intergraph's desktop, Web, and handheld geospatial solutions," said Bart Hoogenraad, global marketing director, Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions. "They know they can implement an open solution that will efficiently integrate geospatial data into business systems that is validated by a pair of industry leaders."

Proven technology for enterprise geospatial solutions

With its interoperability, scalability, and flexibility, GeoMedia technology enables customers to solve enterprise challenges - from planning and design to implementation, operations, and maintenance. GeoMedia promotes interdepartmental and interagency data sharing, which improves decision-making processes. Numerous Intergraph customers around the world already use GeoMedia solutions integrated with a SAP system. Examples of successful implementations include:

-- Chemopetrol Litvinov - A key supplier of products for further processing, especially in chemical, plastics, and pharmaceutical industries, Chemopetrol Litvinov cares for personnel safety and the environment. The company's SAP R/3 PM Maintenance and Repair system is connected to its GeoMedia-based land information system (ISU). The implementation links related infrastructure features, such as pipes and valves, between ISU and PM. Users in the maintenance area can access ISU data without complicated and delayed searches, and at the same time ISU users are provided with relevant information from SAP. The GeoMedia/SAP connection was implemented for Chemopetrol by Intergraph's Team GeoMedia Registered Solutions Provider, HSI, and in cooperation with Logica.
-- NS Vastgoed (Dutch Rail Real Estate) - By integrating key GIS functionality into the previously non-graphical administrative system, Dutch Rail has better insight on the location of its properties and buildings and is better able to determine the actual status of its real estate. Users across the company can show business entities in their spatial context from the SAP R/3 system by clicking a single button. Intergraph's GeoMedia Professional works seamlessly with the SAP information system to import and correct geographic data. Visualizing asset data is helping Dutch Rail to make better decisions on leasing land as well as maintaining property.
