|Karim Elhanafi was born in Austria and graduated as an aeronautical engineer. Later he did attend UNIGIS at the University of Salzburg (Austria).
The GIS evangelist started with GIS in 1990 and implemented many GIS solutions on an international level. In 1997, he founded Oil & Gas IT, which was converted into ONG-IT GmbH.
Karim got a strong focus on GIS within critical infrastructure projects and operation’s security, especially in the design and implementation of integrated data management systems to support and optimise daily processes.
Recently, he started with his team to develop the new CIMOS Platform based on Luciad.
After thorough studies within existing ONG customers in various governments (local/federal), in the Oil & Gas industry, large industries and Retail chains, ONG has decided to develop a one-stop-Security Center to provide customized Solutions and Services for Critical Infrastructure and Operation Security (CIMOS).
Increased situational awareness is achieved by merging various sensor data as well as automated video analytics.
Mixed-Reality will be utilised as well to help operators and field staff in their daily work.
