A Word from The Boss

“Enhance Security”

Welcome to Summer’s GeoSolutions News

In this edition, we profile a couple of client stories, detail how to best manage user management change requests, present some more X-InFocus tech tips, provide some insight in our next major software release, update of our teams’ activities in connecting people with information, and offer an exciting 2024 giveaway.

We welcome Paulina Lee, Senior GIS Specialist, to our Solutions team in Brisbane.

2023 has been a busy year, 37 solutions projects delivered, the release of version 7 of the X-Info suite, migration of all our clients to our new AWS Cloud Platform, culminating with the successful rollout of Before You Dig Australia National Referral Service Format changes in our X-Info Assurance suite completed on 23 November, the end is in sight. It has been such a pleasure to catch up with so many clients personally, whether it was in meetings, an event, sharing a bite to eat or a coffee across the country over the last few weeks. It is such a privileged to be able to travel and am reminded how lucky we are to live in this part of the world.

To service the dynamic energy and infrastructure sectors at such a significant time, as we all look to navigate the hugely complex and challenging energy transition that is well and truly underway (where hiring and retaining the resources to deliver on our commitments while keeping up to date with the risks of cyber incidents, business disruption, changes in legislation and regulation) is accelerating our digital Transformation Stages.

2024 see us start to align the Next Generation of X-Info Suite with our new AWS Platform, will see us identify capability gaps and cross organisational dependencies. Doing so will help us create strategies for improving our cloud platform operations, ensure stakeholder alignment, and facilitate relevant organisational change management activities. It is certainly exciting to be heading into the new year.

In closing, I would like to acknowledge and welcome our most recent new clients, Ampol and Energy Queensland, thank the significant number who have renewed and congratulate one of our long-term valued clients Australian Gas Infrastructure Group’s Dampier Bunbury Pipeline team on the successful migration and modernisation of their X-Info Assurance suite automated enquiry response and third party works solution to our hosted AWS platform.

On behalf of the Mipela team thank you for your trust and support throughout 2023. Wherever you might be with friends and family over the Christmas period, we send our best wishes for a rewarding and successful New Year which we look forward too with excitement and confidence. Travel safe!
