Boundless, the leading provider of open source geospatial software and services, today announced the launch of its latest products designed to enable organizations to successfully transition to the open source GIS platform.  

The new offerings are powered by trusted open source projects, and include support along with value added services and productivity tools. The expanded platform is designed for organizations who need secure enterprise geospatial IT capabilities, and also need to reduce costs and avoid vendor lock-in.

The enterprise class Boundless platform includes:

Boundless Exchange (powered by GeoNode, GeoGig and Boundless Suite) – a geospatial content management platform that facilitates collaboration, enabling organizations to integrate geospatial content and analysis within their business processes.  With a powerful versioning engine, teams (connected and disconnected) can upload, access, and share content, while ensuring the quality of the content is uncompromised.  Built for your enterprise, Boundless Exchange can power your organization both on premise and as a pure SaaS implementation, providing an open-source alternative to proprietary portal technologies.

Boundless Desktop (powered by QGIS) – A powerful desktop GIS used to create, edit, visualize and analyze geospatial information on Windows, Mac, and Linux.  QGIS supports both raster and vector data, and is used by GIS professionals around the globe.

Boundless Suite (powered by PostGIS, GeoServer and OpenLayers) –   a complete geospatial suite of open-source GIS technologies for collecting, building, managing, and publishing geospatial data. Formerly referred to as OpenGeo Suite, Boundless Suite provides extensive GIS tools and a robust and flexible architecture, where users can build and share maps and applications across web browsers, desktops, and mobile devices. Built on leading open source geospatial software, Boundless Suite continues to be the standard for developers who want to create geopowered solutions.

In support of the open source platform, Boundless is launching a portal for customers –  Boundless Connect  – where registered users will be able to download software and plug-ins, share and collaborate on projects, and browse documentation and training and technical support. This one-stop-shop will include the latest version of supported software and extensions, access to training and tutorial videos, white papers, and documentation for best practices.

Boundless helps enterprise customers design the solution for their mission or business challenges, along with right tier of support for their needs.  Boundless offers an array of support options, from a bundle of hours to 24×7 support, allowing users to tailor the solution to their organization’s operational tempo.  Because the Boundless platform is open source, changing configurations to meet the needs of your growing business is easy, and the Boundless technical team is available to provide guidance and support.

“We are excited to offer the world an alternative to the proprietary GIS products on the market today.” comments Andy Dearing, CEO Boundless. “We enjoy working closely with the community and our users to provide the tools and support they need to be successful.”

The Boundless Platform (Desktop, Exchange, Suite) will be released over the next few months. Be the first to get the latest updates, by signing up for Boundless news.
