Nirvana's solution for the oil and gas industries utilizes storage from EMC ideally suited to the application environment. GA's system also accommodates legacy storage products while supporting a wide range of common current and future storage alternatives as well as ILM schemes. Content management capabilities are provided EMC Documentum. MetaCarta's Geographical Text Search (GTS) is in turn integrated with ESRI software.
Nirvana serves as the infrastructure and enables the federation of locations, data and storage types into collaborative working groups. The solution serves both data users and Administrators. From a user's perspective, there is no change in workflow or in interfaces unless necessary to improve productivity. Users more readily adopt a solution presented within a familiar environment, so applications and interfaces are all based on familiar ESRI software such as ArcView, ArcInfo, ArcSDE and ArcIMS.
