What is data management?
Data management is the practice of collecting, storing, and using data securely and efficiently, helping organizations make informed decisions. From imagery to 3D, real-time, and unstructured data, the volume and types of data are constantly increasing. ArcGIS is at the center of data management workflows, enabling you to better collect, store, maintain, prepare, and share your data. Whether it's customer data, environmental data, sensor data, or raw data, you can organize it from anywhere with ArcGIS, empowering your team to make strategic decisions and enhancing productivity across your organization.
Why is data management important?
Data management is important because organizations are working with more geographic information system (GIS) data than ever before and need safe and efficient ways to gather, organize, and secure it. In today's digital economy, data is an asset that can be used to make better-informed decisions regarding business processes, from optimizing operations to reducing costs, all with the end goal of increasing revenue and profits. Spatial database management with ArcGIS can help organizations reach this goal by ensuring users receive the most accurate GIS data and are empowered to share it safely.
Build a foundation with a spatial database
A spatial database is a data management system that is enhanced to include geographic data such as a location on the earth or the position of an object in space, along with tools for analysis. No matter where you want to store your data, Esri offers a spatial database that meets your needs. You can connect to existing databases and upload live data for all your mapping and analysis needs. Don't have an existing database? No problem. With ArcGIS Enterprise and ArcGIS Online, you get inherent GIS data storage, so you are covered now and as your data grows.
Make smarter decisions with accurate data
You need to have up-to-date, accurate data 24/7 for all your decision-making, and Esri's got you covered.

Set up user or system defined rules to preserve the integrity of your data. Lower data management costs and reduce risk in decision-making by detecting, managing, and reporting errors in your data.
Additionally, you need a data management solution that works with your data. The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension simplifies complex data integration by removing format barriers.
