Esri Partner Network

Solutions and Services

Partners are categorized as providing Solutions and/or Services or both. This categorization is essential for building an effective go-to-market strategy between Partners, Esri, and Esri distributors.


Solutions partners strive to develop offerings that are based on Esri’s patterns of an integrated GIS system:

  1. Asset management—Collect, organize, and exchange data (Geodatabase).
  2. Planning and analysis—Transform data into actionable information (Geoprocessing).
  3. Field Mobility—Get information into and out of the field (Mobile)
  4. Operational awareness—Disseminate knowledge where and when it is needed (Web APIs).
  5. Contingency engagement—Get feedback and make informed decisions. (Web APIs / Geodatabase)

By focusing on these patterns, and combining industry expertise with development best practices, partners develop solutions that deliver real value to end users.


Services partners have an established professional services practice or center of excellence and utilize Esri software, data, or services on a project basis aligned with Esri key industries and market focus.
