17 March 2006, Aylesbury… Clarinet, the outsourcing, GIS and ePublishing specialist in the oil industry, has signed up to the Developer Network programme from ESRI (UK), a provider of enterprise Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in the UK. The Developer Network will enable Clarinet to integrate cutting edge geographic functionality and technology with its software applications and business solutions without the usual price barriers associated with enterprise level software.
The ESRI Developer Network (EDN) gives ESRI partners unprecedented access to the company’s entire library of developer GIS software including ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Server, ArcIMS Internet Map Server, a dedicated ESRI developer website, technical support and certified training.
Through EDN, Clarinet is developing a data mining enterprise database which will integrate GIS, bibliographic and satellite imagery to aid oil and gas exploration by the major oil companies.
Commenting on why the company signed to the EDN, Stephen Schofield, managing director says:
“We have increasingly been adding spatial dimensions to our client’s solutions. Joining EDN means that we’ll be able to extend this spatial offering by cost effectively exploring additional opportunities around geographic products on the ESRI platform. As a result, we’ll be better placed to market test geospatial products with our clients and develop solutions which best fit their requirements. Clarinet has been a member of Microsoft’s developer network for 20 years. We felt that ESRI’s approach mirrored that of Microsoft’s so we feel confident that the programme will have a positive impact on our solutions.”
Since EDN was launched in May 2005, the programme has been implemented in over 60 sites across the UK. Organisations interested in finding out more about the programme are invited to attend the ESRI Partners and Alliances Day on 27 April in central London.
