(Munich, 19 March 2014) Imagine a geo service that combines remote sensing imagery and geodata from multiple sources and analyzes them with professional Geo-IT software on a powerful workbench—all on a pay-per-use basis. This has become reality with CloudEO , the cloud-based geo collaboration platform partnering with worldwide leading geodata content, software and service providers.

CloudEO enables new business models for existing and new market players. Rather than making huge upfront investments in permanent licenses for software, IT and data, CloudEO users can now buy subscriptions and even 24/7 geo processing services on a pay-per-use basis at affordable prices, or enter into innovative revenue- sharing schemes. Data providers, software developers and service providers are enabled to market their products and services more easily and efficiently.

“Geo service providers are the customers for our satellite imagery, and we facilitate their businesses every day,” said DMCii CEO Dave Hodgson. “CloudEO’’s unique geo collaboration portal provides all of the elements our customers need to develop a professional service easily and enable a fast market entry and ROI. That’s why we have decided to be CloudEO partner.”

Moreover, CloudEO’s cloud service handles all aspects of user authentication, registration and accounting. “CloudEO’s service opens up great new possibilities to reach our customers more easily, with less administrative effort. We are sure to get new customers with it,” said Dr. Thomas Heege, CEO of EOMAP, a CloudEO partner offering sophisticated map products. “The easy-to-access web store solution is an especially customer-orientated and well-designed platform.”
