Plenary 2: Digital Engineering
Digital Engineering is a process where design, manufacturing, construction and asset management activities integrate; ensuring data is captured, managed and shared properly. This enables project owners to efficiently procure, operate and maximize the value of their assets over their entire lifecycle.
Sectors such as construction, infrastructure, utilities, and oil and gas are substantial drivers for national economic growth. It is crucial for these sectors to continuously improve their efficiency and productivity for the benefits of the nation. Digital engineering is challenging the traditional way of delivery in those sectors, while bringing additional value to practitioners.
The session will discuss integration of geospatial technology with digital engineering, including some successful case studies around the globe.
Plenary 3: Business Intelligence
Analyzing relationships between spatial environment and organizational performance creates a wealth of information for business intelligence. It offers richer perspective on service offerings, consumer interaction, transactional information, and how location and demographics play a role in business performance. Integrating geospatial data with traditional datasets is key in this process.
The session will focus on the relationship between spatial analytics and business intelligence with special emphasis on the following:
- Trends and forecast of Business Intelligence market
- Technology innovations driving Spatial Analytics industry
- Value of Spatial Analytics/GIS for Business Intelligence applications
- Use cases of applying Spatial Analytics and Business Intelligence in various vertical domains

Plenary 4: Geo4SDGs: Addressing Agenda 2030
The unprecedented power of ‘Where’, i.e. the location element lies at the core of SDGs and geoinformation makes the invisible – visible. It helps in analyzing the past, makes observations about the present, predict the future to improve people’s life and protect the planet. The United Nations has also corroborated the significance of leveraging geospatial data for policy-making, programming and project operations to realize the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the 169 associated targets. The session will discuss the increasing role of geospatial information to address the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Plenary 5: Location Analytics
Location intelligence supports analysis and decision making, delivering spatial insights via GIS-enabled applications, including enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM) and geo-social networking. Such location analytics help optimize business decisions, location advertising, and location marketing, such as siting of new stores, dealerships, branch offices, etc; or analyzing buying habits and demographics of customers. Insurance and financial services, on the other hand, use location intelligence to simulate risk and verify claims. The session will feature business users from mainstream industries discussing the importance of location analytics in their operations.
