    Elektro Celje d.d. is one of the five Slovenian distributers of electrical energy. They keep records of their electric distribution network in several different computer systems. For their business system and records of their fixed assets they use “Baza tehničnih podatkov” (BTP, angl. database of technical data). Information about the geographical location of the assets is stored in the geographic information system (GIS). Such data sharing without interconnection is causing problems to the company. Errors in the data occur, excess work is needed and other problems associated with heterogeneous environments. For this reason, the company decided to introduce the integration between the two systems in such manner that the GIS system will serve as primary data (graphic and attribute data) input system and the integration processes will take care of the transfer and consistency of data in the business system BTP. In this thesis i briefly outline geographical information system, one of the major GIS software providers (ESRI) software and its key components which provide concurrent use of the system for many users and i finish with description of the integration procedure between the two systems. With my colleagues we created a system that completely complies with the customer's requirements. Key elements of the system are ESRI tools for working with the GIS and Microsoft's tools for working with the databases. Integration system now successfully connects GIS system and database of technical data while ensuring the consistency and robustness.
