Well, we’re all back in the office after the ESRI Business Partner Conference and Developer Summit in Palm Springs last week. There has been lots of follow-up and I haven’t had time to recap.

At these events, ESRI announced their new ESRI Partner Network, which will classify ESRI’s business partners into three levels (Silver, Gold, and Platinum). Of about two thousand partners, approximately 10% will be Gold Partners and not more than 1% will be Platinum Partners.

In recent months, we were grateful to be invited to be one of the ten inaugural/guinea pig partners (I think there are five Gold and five Platinum) for the roll-out of the program. We're now pleased to announce:

Latitude Geographics has been recognized as an inaugural Platinum ESRI Partner.

I’m very proud of this, and of the people with whom I have the honor of working. This recognition reflects the talent of my colleagues here at Latitude, our partners and resellers around the world, and our long-time and visionary customers. The day-to-day hard work of these folks to build and implement our technology ultimately defines who we are. So to all who helped make this possible… thank you.

I’ll pop up another post about the BPC/Dev Summit in the next day or two, but I wanted to share this news.
