Tech Mahindra Enterprise Spatial Architecture Designing Tool (SADT)

Tech Mahindra’s SADT is a frame work to assess spatial domain requirements, types of business, spatial data, map applications, and technical needs. This tool is used to identify Enterprise system design requirements and model performance and scalability of Enterprise design. SADT provides a framework for integrating all components of a spatial system and defines a spatial Architecture using industry standard protocols and sizing parameters. This tool enables our customers and Spatial Architects to perform design, deploy, and manage successful enterprise spatial operations. This tool has been developed by Tech Mahindra’s Spatial Unit through more than 20 years of expertise and experience in designing and implementing Enterprise Spatial Solutions. It is based on HTML 5 and JavaScript with the GUI in front end MS Excel. It involves complex macro scripts which help in manipulating the results based on user input.

This tool has multiple modules: Sizing Calculation, Map data sizing & Caching Module, Deployment Architecture, Bandwidth calculations, Communication protocol identification and Network Architecture.

Tech Mahindra Structured System Design Process for Spatial (SSDP)

Structured System Design Process for Spatial is a process developed by Tech Mahindra to implement successful spatial enterprise operations for its various Fortune 500 Clients. SSDP enables our customers to assess and take quick decisions to upgrade or migrate existing Spatial Systems. This process builds on existing Spatial System’s Architecture and recommends specific modifications and upgrades on deferent components such as hosting, hardware and software in order to meet projected business (user) needs. This includes a comprehensive recommendation report on gap analysis, upgrade to existing GIS infrastructure as well as cost benefit analysis. SSDP enables our customers to adopt latest technology and achieve rapid recovery on investments (RoI) made on Spatial Systems.

Spatial Database Comparison and Normalization Tool

In enterprise spatial setup, it is required to have Production, Test and Development environments. In order to smoothly rollout any spatial application, it is imperative to have same schema and data structure in all three environments.

It is difficult to manually check for these changes especially if the data is frequently changing as it often happens in Telecom domain. There are tools available in the market for DBMS comparisons. However, these tools cannot read the spatial data since it has a spatial component which standard DBMS tools cannot read.

The Spatial database comparison and normalization tool developed by Tech Mahindra’s Spatial Unit enables comparison of the different spatial databases and provides comparison reports from DBMS as well as spatial perspective.

This tool also enables the normalization of the two databases by deleting/creating the spatial features form the compared databases. Since the tool deals with critical production databases, a high level of skill is required to operate this tool. It requires having the database/server administrator privileges to run and hence thorough understanding of the organization’s data security protocols and IT policies is a must.

The tool deals with complex spatial data components such as User Defined data types, Raster block tables, row-id indexes, geometry columns etc. A thorough understanding of all these components and knowledge of any impact they will have on other spatial objects in the DBMS is crucial for using this tool. This knowledge is only available with Tech Mahindra’s Spatial Unit.

Telecom Fiber Network Planning Tool based on Chinese Postman Algorithm (CPP)

Tech Mahindra’s Spatial Unit has developed Network Planning solutions tool based on Chinese postman problem (CPP) algorithm to find a shortest closed path or circuit that visits every edge of a (connected) undirected graph. This tool finds the minimum length closed walk that traverses each edge at least once. This is specifically useful for analyzing Fiber networks. Fiber cables are hosted in underground ducts and/or overhead poles and are designed using Fiber Network Planning system which is designed based on the CPP algorithm to minimize the cost and maximize performance. The tool is incorporated on a web-based portal which is accessible from mobile devices on the field. This involves JavaScript/Arc Object programming for doing customized changes from time to time as the new community/demand data is available.
