Esri Partner Conference Wrap Up

Posted by Jay Fowler on Mar 16, 2015 3:38:05 PM


Mike, Jason, and I just returned from a fantastic trip to Palm Springs California. We attended Esri's Partner Conference and want to share some of the notable exciting developments for the ArcGIS© Platform.


ArcGIS© Pro - The newest piece of Esri's Platform. This software is going to knock your socks off with its speed and user friendly functionality. The best part? It is designed to be virtualized. ROK wants to host ArcGIS© Pro for your organization.  Please contact us to setup a trial. Also keep an eye out for more blog posts to come regarding Pro...

  • Improved User Experience
  • Combined 2D and 3D
  • Customize and configure tasks

Esri's JavaScript API - Heads up to all HTML/JS GIS developers; Esri is splitting the JS API into 3.X and 4.X. Both will be maintained, supported, and enhanced. However, all of the cool new features will ONLY be in 4.X and required a re-write of the API. Migration is suppose to require as little re-writing of apps as possible from 3.X to 4.X.  Advanced features on the horizon in 4.X:

  • Smart Mapping
  • 3D
  • Vector Map Tiles
  • Local Geometry

App Builder and App Studio - Esri seeks to continue easing of development pain. These two products make it easier for application development in browsers and native SDKs. Do you want an app? ROK wants to build it for you.

New and Improved Maps and Apps - Esri is refining and creating new maps and apps that are free to use from the cloud. Are you looking to kick-start or enhance your Organizations' use of ArcGIS© Online? ROK is ready to provide services with our ArcGIS© Online Specialty Designation. Apps recently created or improved:

  • Explorer
  • Collector
  • Operations Dashboard
  • Navigator
    • Provides routing from location to location
    • Can be accessed though a remote control API for integration in all ArcGIS© Platform apps

Esri Business Partners - Aside from Esri's new developments, this conference provided further confirmation that ROK has a lot to offer other Esri Business Partners. Are you a BP with a great geo-solution but you lack the infrastructure to get it off of the ground? ROK provides ArcGIS© Platform hosting for map services, ArcGIS© Software, Web Applications, and Enterprise GeoDatabases through our Esri ASP License and our private cloud. Contact ROK for more information on how we can take your solutions to the next level.

That's a wrap on our trip. Please Contact us if you have any questions or would like to inquire about ROK's Instant Enterprise Services.
