Reston, VA - July 17, 2012 – Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, and Open Solutions Group, Inc. (OpenSGI), the innovative leader in providing high performance data delivery and geospatial visualization, today announced a partnership through which the companies will make OpenSGI’s geospatial web cache technology and professional services available to the public sector via Carahsoft’s GSA schedule.

“We are pleased to partner with Carahsoft to provide lightweight and agile geospatial technology products and services to government agencies at a low cost, especially at a time when future budgets are so uncertain,” said Brian Levy, president and CEO of OpenSGI. “Our capabilities combine cutting edge technology with open standards for a high return on investment. Our reusable software solutions allow agencies to really stretch their budgets.”

OpenSGI’s services and its Enterprise Geocache software provide solutions to overcome the common challenges with geospatial data visualization, offering instant access to more than 40 terabytes of worldwide high resolution geospatial data and imagery. Government agencies are leveraging these solutions to push the envelope with respect to providing a common operational picture and getting the critical intelligence into the hands of analysts and operational planners as quickly as possible. 

By serving over a billion map images, the out-of-the-box platform enables GIS analysts to more efficiently search, relate, and visualize geospatial information using a unified view of spatial data and non-spatial knowledge. It provides enterprise mission critical operations and supports the streaming of geospatial data for both web and desktop applications, including, but not limited to ESRI ArcGIS Desktop, ESRI ArcGIS Server Applications, Google Earth, and OGC Web Map Viewers. 

“OpenSGI’s knowledge discovery and geospatial intelligence solutions cut lag time between uncovering critical intelligence and passing it along to analysts and operation planners,” said Michael Shrader, vice president of innovative and intelligence solutions at Carahsoft. “The DoD is already embracing this technology, and we are pleased to add OpenSGI to complement to our GIS solutions portfolio. We look forward to working with the OpenSGI team and our ecosystem of technology and reseller partners to further increase its footprint within the government market.”
