Esri announced an enterprise agreement with the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). This agreement gives ORNL access to the full set of spatial analysis tools in the ArcGIS platform. Under the agreement, ORNL can add licenses as needed to support the many federal research and development projects it undertakes. “This is the first major enterprise agreement between Esri and a Department of Energy laboratory,” said ORNL’s Budhendra Bhaduri, who leads the Geographic Information Science and Technology group. “Because ORNL provides support to many federal agencies, including the Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of Defense, extra capacity to generate spatial analysis applications is critical.” For industries that use location-based data in numerous capacities, spatial analysis technology is particularly advantageous on the enterprise level, as it unifies all the platform’s capabilities under one agreement for a fixed annual fee.
