Minnesota county builds xRM-based land permitting solution, integrated to geographic information system (GIS)
In 2011, a county in rural Minnesota embarked on a big a project to upgrade its legacy land and water permitting system.
"Our land permitting systems is in Dynamics CRM but our geographic information system (GIS) is by Esri," said the project manager at a recent online meeting of CRMUG. "The old system was on SQL Server 2000 and it was developed with Active Server Pages."
Because the older land permitting technology couldn't be upgraded, the system failure danger was high," she said. "That sort of put us in the position of getting it replaced as soon as possible because the fear was if the server crashed, or anything happened, we wouldn't be able to recover from that. And it was important, in terms of the business use to keep it going."
