PTFS Announces Availability of Knowvation GS in Amazon Web Services Marketplace

NORTH BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwired - Jul 9, 2015) - Progressive Technology Federal Systems Inc. (PTFS), provider of Knowvation, an Enterprise Content Management System (ECMS) suite, announced today at the AWS Summit - New York that its Knowvation GS geospatial application is available as a listing in Amazon Web Services Marketplace (AWS Marketplace). AWS Marketplace is an online store that makes it easy for customers to discover, purchase, and deploy the software they need to run their business on AWS.

Knowvation GS is a web-based geospatial content management system (GeoCMS) that provides search and discovery and manages structured and unstructured content, including born-digital and digitized files, across multiple repositories in the enterprise. Fully modular, Knowvation GS enables users to interrogate and retrieve content by searching on geospatial parameters, metadata, and/or full text. Searchable content includes raster/vector geospatial files, documents, books, newspapers, video, audio, photographs and other files in all formats.

AWS Marketplace enables customers to compare options, read reviews, and quickly find the software they want. Visitors seeking Knowvation GS in AWS Marketplace can purchase and launch Knowvation GS with 1-Click®, Knowvation will then be available for consumption on an hourly basis.

"AWS Marketplace provides flexibility to our customers by closely matching usage requirements and the speed with which customers now need to move to grow and manage their business," said Dan Quinn, PTFS Vice President. "Instead of a rigid perpetual license model and investing months of time, AWS Marketplace users can purchase and deploy our software in minutes running on AWS."

Knowvation GS users can perform geospatial searches on big data archives containing more than 200 different file formats and product types. Format-agnostic geospatial queries can be initiated by typing a word/phrase, entering latitude/longitude coordinates or drawing a polygon on a map interface. 

PTFS is also a member of the Amazon Partner Network (APN). Membership enables PTFS to tap technical resources from AWS to expand its use of the AWS Cloud -- both for development purposes and as an additional cloud option for customers.

PTFS will demonstrate the Knowvation GeoCMS solution at the AWS Summit in the Marketplace Kiosk at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City on July 9, 2015.
