Esri Partner Conference, 2011

APOS is an Esri Gold Partner, so we were excited to attend this landmark conference. The theme of this year's conference was "Charting Our Course Together" -- essentially, taking partner relations beyond partnering to full collaboration, to build a community of partners.

Community has become the focus for Esri and its partners: how we can all collaborate to bring the analytic power of GIS and location intelligence to a broader audience, and how that audience can collaborate to get more out of their collective investment in geographic information.

As part of this initiative, Esri is:
  • Making it possible to build discrete, purpose-driven "widgets" that perform specific functions or spatial analysis for a user or group of users;
  • Making GIS and location intelligence more pervasive through mobile- and web-based applications; and
  • Making it possible for communities to share GIS content through ArcGIS Online -- data, geoprocessing models, and maps.
Esri is also encouraging its partners with vertical-specific expertise to collaborate in building markets by tackling the specific workflows in those verticals.
