If your organization is introducing new workflows or planning a key GIS initiative, Esri's people-focused adoption strategy consultants can help you achieve the rate of adoption needed for maximum impact. Meet with a consultant to discuss options to deploy an adoption strategy that builds a strong foundation for sustained organizational change and innovation with ArcGIS.

Prior to the appointment, we’ll ask that you provide an overview of your current GIS initiatives or projects.

Get expert advice and feedback on your existing or planned enterprise implementation, including Esri architecture best practices. Leave with recommendations for meeting your system or solution architecture needs.

An Esri architect will work with you to address needs in a selected architecture topic, providing recommendations and considerations for next steps.

Architecture topics include the following:

  • Architecture Assessment: Receive a high-level review of your existing or planned architecture and discuss opportunities to better meet current and future requirements.
  • Migration Considerations: Discuss your current deployment and explore options for a cloud or on-premises new target environment.
  • Maintenance and Operations: Discuss and consider post-deployment best practices such as performance management, testing, and monitoring.

Prior to the appointment, we’ll ask that you provide

  • Your current/planned architecture diagram.
  • Your migration plans.

A key element to maximizing the impact of GIS for your organization is developing and executing a geospatial strategy. Do you understand your organization's business challenges? Do you know how GIS, mapping, and location intelligence can support those challenges? Meet with Esri experts to review where you are today and learn how GIS can help your organization meet its goals by developing and executing a geospatial strategy.

Review current geospatial strategy in the context of people, processes, and technology by doing the following:

  • Discussing business challenges, success criteria, and future goals
  • Discussing the current state of GIS technology
  • Performing a high-level review of the current state of your GIS technology and inventory (business, data, applications, infrastructure, and people)
