Publish date:

Capgemini and con terra Delivered a New Applications Platform for the Bavarian State Environment Agency

The Situation

In 1998, the Bavarian State Geological Agency (Bayerische Geologische Landesamt, now called the Bayerische Landesamt für Umwelt, or BayLfU), began their plans to establish a Bavarian soil information system within five years. In this early project phase, sd&m AG (now the Technology Services unit we call Custom Solution Development in Capgemini in Germany) developed technical prototypes for the agency along with partner company con terra.

The Solution

In consortium with the experts for geographical information systems at con terra, Capgemini developed and implemented a client-server architecture using a new basic technology with Corba, Oracle, ArcIMS (2011 modernization on the ArcGIS server) and ArcSDE. 

The Result

The GABY application platform was successfully put into operation on schedule on 1 September 2003. In 2004, it won the BayernOnline prize for E-Government and in 2011 it won the international SAG Award1.
