Esri and Our Partners, Working Together for Customer Success

From March 5th through 7th, I had the pleasure of attending the 2022 Esri Partner Conference (EPC) in beautiful Palm Springs, CA. This event has been going on for over 30 years. Prior to joining Esri, I worked for Esri Partners and really looked forward to this focused event each year. Once I joined Esri, I missed participating in the EPC. While EPC went virtual during the pandemic, I was able to participate in it, but as we all know, it just was not the same. To attend EPC in person this year was a reminder how important personal relationships are in our lives, both socially and for business and personal development. Many of our users may not be aware of this event and the value presented by the Esri Partner Network, so I thought I would do my best to shine the light on this critical part of the Esri ecosystem.

Esri has almost 3,000 partners in various categories, Technology, Strategic Alliances, Products & Solutions, Consulting & Services, Content, Developers, and in different tiers, from Startup, to Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum, in all sizes, across the world, covering many different industries. These organizations serve a critical function. Esri alone cannot provide all the support needed for the global community to realize their potential via the Geographic Approach. Here are six splendid examples of our partners at work, helping our users be more successful with ArcGIS:
