BOULDER, Colo.,April 8, 2015 — Exelis (NYSE: XLS) Visual Information Solutions (Exelis VIS) has entered a new partnership with CloudEO to offer ENVI® image analysis software in a virtualized, cloud environment.
CloudEO teams with geospatial content and software providers, such as Exelis VIS, to offer consumers a unique service that brings together geospatial data, geospatial software, and the processing power of the cloud. With ENVI software now available on the scalable CloudEO infrastructure, businesses can easily predict software costs for projects, rapidly scale up operations to handle large scale projects and even develop products and services that can be sold to potential customers.
Designed and built by Exelis VIS, ENVI software provides scientifically proven image-analysis results in an easy to use interface — from the geographical information systems analyst who needs to enhance mapping applications for better geographic awareness to the research scientist using imagery to aid in critical discoveries, a variety of professionals use ENVI software.
Through this partnership, anyone can access ENVI software via their desktop while simultaneously taking advantage of the computational capability of working in the cloud. Customers can sign up for as much or as little “time” with the software as they need based on their project requirement.
“With tighter margins and shrinking budgets, this option gives Exelis customers the ability to do more with less,” said Stuart Blundell, general manager and director of sales, Exelis VIS. “Cloud technology offers our customers a new way to increase employee collaboration, create efficiencies, simplify IT management and improve organizational access to information.”
