Title: Business Development Committee Report NYSGISA


1
Business Development Committee Report NYSGISA
  • Scott Sherwood, Pictometry, Chair
  • John Trimber, James W. Sewall
  • Verne LaClaire, PAR Govt Systems
  • Austin Fisher, Fountains Spatial

2
Mission of the Business Development Committee
  • To promote the growth of private sector GIT
    businesses in New York State

3
Objectives
  • Define the business categories that comprise the
    GIT industry in NY State.
  • Quantify the current state of the GIT sector in
    terms of employment and business revenue trends.
  • Investigate the primary factors affecting growth
    of the GIT sector.
  • Identify potential courses of action to stimulate
    growth.
  • Increase the awareness and involvement of GIT
    businesses in NYS professional forums.

4
Define the business categories that comprise the
GIT industry
  • Using the working definition developed by the
    University of Southern Mississippi study, GIT is
    defined as
  • an information technology field of practice
    that acquires, manages, interprets, integrates,
    displays, analyzes, or otherwise uses data
    focusing on the geographic, temporal, and spatial
    context. It also includes development and
    life-cycle management of information technology
    tools to support the above.

5
  • From a practical point of view, the businesses
    can be considered to fall into the following
    categories
  • Data related services (engineers, architects,
    photogrammetry, remote sensing, oblique imagery,
    web hosting, etc.)
  • GIS Consulting (software development, application
    development, needs assessment, etc.)
  • Professional services (licensed, certified,
    authoritative map sources)
  • Software Developers (manufacturing)
  • Data Production (data mining)
  • Educational institutions as a business center, as
    related to workforce development, and also as a
    provider for services listed above, sometimes in
    competition with private businesses.

6
Quantify the current state of the GIT sector in
terms of employment and business revenue trends
7
NAICS Codes
  • Using NAICS codes, we will try and quantify the
    trends in the GIT businesses over the last
    several years. This would be done at the state
    level since the codes may not track well at the
    regional or county level due to data suppression.

8
NAICS Codes continued
  • The codes are general in nature and unfortunately
    do not support breaking out the business
    categories in sufficient detail to permit
    tracking economic trends
  • NAICS Code Listing (Excel)

Committee Observations
15
Data related services (engineers, architects,
photogrammetry, remote sensing, oblique imagery,
web hosting, etc.) these areas have slowed over
time since many of the larger data collection and
conversion projects have already been completed
and are now into the maintenance and digital
conversion stage, which are typically much
smaller dollar value contracts. These smaller and
shorter contracts in turn, make it difficult to
hire and retain qualified employees. Data
collection projects sponsored by New York State
have in some cases taken business away from
smaller NY State based businesses. The work
that would have traditionally been done by them
is now done by out of state and off-shore
businesses.
16
  • GIS Consulting (software development,
    application development, needs assessment, etc.)
    this area has been increasing in general,
    possibly because of the maturation of the data
    conversion projects mentioned above and because
    these services cant be exported as easily.

17
  • Professional services (licensed, certified,
    authoritative map sources) these services are
    also increasing for the same reasons cited above.

18
  • Software Developers (Manufacturing) There have
    been some successes NY State but the trend is
    flat.

19
  • Data Production This area is highly
    competitive, especially from overseas.

20
  • We are also exploring the possibility of
    applying for a grant to conduct a survey of GIT
    business in NY State to obtain a better
    understanding of the trends in employment and
    ways to promote them.

21
Investigate the primary factors affecting growth
of the GIT sector
22
  • In general ,the completion of major projects in
    the past, the competition from out of state and
    offshore businesses, as well as educational
    institutions that act in a business generating
    capacity are all factors that affect growth of
    the GIT sector in New York State.

23
  • The Southern Mississippi study identified 27
    factors that can affect the GIT sectors growth
    and we are reviewing these for relevance to NY
    State.

24
Factors Affecting the Industry
  • Evolving geospatial information requirements for
    society
  • Increased reliance on the use of geospatial
    information technology for decision-making
  • Availability and accessibility of geospatial data
  • Increased pressure and capacity to measure
    workplace productivity, performance,
    cost-effectiveness, and efficiency
  • Increased pressure to demonstrate the value,
    impact, quality, and practicality of geospatial
    information technology solutions
  • Accelerated rate of change and more uncertain
    work environments

25
  • Increased emphasis on customer service and
    expectation of quality products and services from
    the workforce
  • Increased sophistication and variety of tools,
    technologies, methods, theories, and choices in
    GIT
  • Increased diversity (demographics, values,
    experience) at all levels of the workforce
  • Increased expectations for higher levels of
    judgment and flexibility in worker contribution
    (specifically, for more creativity, risk-taking,
    adaptation to change, and teamwork)
  • Increased use of systems approaches that
    integrate geospatial information technology in
    the workplace
  • Business strategies that concentrate more on
    geospatial information technology services and
    require strategic geospatial information
    technology actions
  • Changed emphasis in organizations from loyalty to
    merit, accountability, performance, and relevant
    skills
  • Globalization of business, increased and expanded
    international markets, joint venture, overseas
    ownerships, and competition

26
  • Increased need for commitment, meaningful work,
    and participation on the job by a larger
    proportion of the workforce
  • Increased use of flatter, more flexible
    organization design, smaller, self-contained work
    groups and reduced staff
  • Increased skill requirements in response to
    rapid technological change
  • Increased education and diversity in the
    U.S. workforce
  • Continued corporate (re)structuring
  • Change in size and composition of organizations
  • Revolutionized training through changes in
    delivery methods
  • Finding new ways to develop solutions
  • Increased focus on performance improvement
  • Proliferating and integrated high performance
    work systems
  • Transforming into learning organizations
  • Accelerated organization emphasis on human
    performance management
  • Continued role of federal government in
    developing policies and programs that impact the
    private sector

27
Identify potential courses of action to stimulate
growth
  • Concentrate on the professional services and the
    development of unique products that can not be
    easily replicated.
  • Consider regional locations or satellite offices
    that can take advantage of the proximity to areas
    of high consulting activity.

28
Continued
  • Investigate opportunities for promoting NY
    based businesses and US based businesses in the
    face of out of state or foreign competition
  • Capitalize on and promote the excellent
    educational facilities in the state as a source
    for a well-trained work force

29
Continued
  • Educational facilities can be a source of
    technical innovation that leads to
    products/services that can be the basis for a
    successful business start-up (e.g. MapInfo,
    Pictometry)
  • Explore better connections between the
    educational institutions and businesses such as
    enhanced internship programs

30
Increase the awareness and involvement of GIT
businesses in NYS professional forums
  • NYSGISA representatives to present at
    professional forums such as engineers to show
    relevant information on how GIS can effectively
    be integrated into their projects.
  • Promote relevance of presentations and content
    and attendance at NY State GIS Conference,
    Geospatial Forum, and other events. The current
    attendee profile at most events is very heavy on
    government employees and some vendors that
    support that market.
