Galdos Systems — The Registry Experts
Galdos Systems develops effective information management and sharing solutions for our customers. Our INdicio technology provides the core functionality and capabilities, on top of which we can quickly build custom applications to solve specific business challenges.
Galdos has published case studies on some of the more interesting registry applications that we have designed and built for our customers. These case studies include master data management applications, registries, catalogues, and solutions for asset management, urban development, and emergency management.
Master Data Management
The need for master data management solutions can be triggered by a number of things, including managing supply chains, integrating data sources from mergers and acquisitions activities, and monitoring ongoing business activities across multiple branches in many different locations.
Master Data Management (MDM) technologies support mastering data to provide a “single point of truth” across enterprise applications with respect to an organization’s critical data and metadata. Galdos INdicio™ has native support for geographic data and for managing the metadata and taxonomies, and it supports building relationships between data items as well as creating and managing classifications and associations.
One of the leading causes of failure in mergers and acquisitions is the inability to integrate the new business with the existing one, including integrating databases and operational systems. There are typically two very different challenges when integrating databases and systems. The first big challenge is how to aggregate the new data source with the existing system. If the plan is to move forward with a single integrated system, then once this is done operations can continue as before. The second big challenge is how to keep everything synchronized if the databases and systems are relatively independent. How this is done will depend on how and why the systems are integrated with each other.
Registries can offer significant benefit for data and information management, and Galdos has provided several solutions for different customers, some of which are described in our case studies.
Spatial Data Infrastructures
Conventional ideas of an SDI have been driven by national mapping agencies and have been largely focused on the resources to catalogue and provide access to maps and related data sets. Galdos defines an SDI as “an event-driven peer to peer architecture which supports the real time integration of distributed spatial or spatially related databases” (see our blog post “What is an SDI?“). This is an approach which is consistent with multiple interacting users, and with real time or near real time information sharing.
Newer thinking is focused on national spatial data infrastructures as an essential component for managing the business of government, addressing the challenges of constant renewal of data, quality of information, and information management.
SDIs enable database synchronization by managing the publication/subscription relationships between the users who supply data and the users who consume it.

Galdos Systems has provided various spatial data infrastructure (SDI) solutions for different customers. Each solution has focused on the realization of different benefits, such as geospatial information sharing and urban development management.
