Cloud is fashionable! – But how safe is my data?
More than two-thirds of German companies now use cloud solutions – and that figure is growing rapidly. The forecast for turnover with cloud computing in the B2B sector is currently at 30 billion Euro for 2022.*
No wonder, because Software as a Service is practical and economic. However, there is one aspect that each company must carefully consider when services out of the cloud are used: How secure is the data?

What types of cloud GIS are there?
The two main types of cloud GIS are: Software as a Service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS).
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provides software applications over the Internet. WIGeoGIS offers the standard products WIGeoLocation and WIGeoWeb, as well as individual WebGIS software. We take responsibility for the hosting and the entire IT infrastructure as well as maintenance and security.
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offers cloud-based GIS services such as address searches, distance matrices, isochrones, route calculation, the display of digital maps and satellite images. WIGeoGIS offers access to the services of Bing, Here and TomTom. Developers and IT service providers can create and deploy map-based applications faster and more intuitively.
Why can I quickly start using Cloud GIS productively?
In order to use GIS software in the cloud, a company does not have to start an internal IT project. Software-as-a-Service means that the GIS software can be used immediately. WIGeoGIS provides the infrastructure, software and external data.
Specific business requirements can usually be made available within a few weeks instead of several months.
What are the benefits of cloud GIS for businesses?
