ComputaMaps and GEOIMAGE Combine to Create Largest Wireless Geodata Provider

Integrated Supply Chain, Global Catalogue and Focus on Specialized Software to Strengthen Their Joint Offering

Cape Town, South Africa and Mouans-Sartoux, France - February 17, 2014 - ComputaMaps and GEOIMAGE, two leading producers of geodata for the wireless market, announced their merger earlier today. The two companies will benefit from a larger shared catalogue of on-the-shelf geodata, an expanded global corporate infrastructure and related distribution network as well as increased production capability through facilities in Cape Town and Tunis. Together, ComputaMaps and GEOIMAGE become the largest geodata vendor to the wireless ecosystem where their products are used for RF planning and optimization.

"A merger of our complementary businesses allows us to achieve scale in the production of 3D geodata and focus on the unique requirements of wireless operators as they move to 4G," said Albéric Maumy, managing director of ComputaMaps. "We will expand our research and development efforts to support corporate growth through product and service innovation."

One immediate area of focus involves SpacEyes 3D software. Originally developed by GEOIMAGE for the urban planning market, SpacEyes is being tailored for use in the wireless industry. A preview will be shown at Mobile World Congress later this month in Barcelona.

"Our companies have independently specialized in cartography and have long histories supplying geodata to mobile operators around the world," said Lionel Laurore, managing director of GEOIMAGE. "Taking intellectual property, related processes and best practices from each entity will enable us to ramp up product development in a way that differentiates us in the market place. Our customers will rapidly see new products and services as a result of this merger."

ComputaMaps and GEOIMAGE now operate under the direction of their previous management - including Albéric Maumy, Justin Hyland, George de Greef and Lionel Laurore - through the LuxCarta holding company. Customers will continue to be served by their existing geodata provider and account team.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management.

Service providers will w...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
