ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands – Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, today announced that it has entered into a four-year general master agreement (GMA) with the European Commission. The agreement will enable the European Commission and selected Executive Agencies to use Esri software and deploy the full suite of its ArcGIS products in an open, scalable, and standards-based GIS architecture.
Implemented and deployed by Esri's European distributors, the GMA also provides terms and conditions which several other EU institutions, agencies, and bodies can leverage to have access to Esri products. Esri's European distributors will provide local support, services and training.
We look forward to working with the European Commission as a part of this agreement, said Jack Dangermond, Esri founder and president. It is a priority for us to support the European Commission Directorates General and Agencies with our latest geospatial technology, for their important policy work in the EU.
The use of Esri's GIS technology will enable the European Commission and its Executive Agencies to easily share and analyze geographic information and use them to make better-informed, data driven, policy decisions.
