Modern Geocortex leverages the modern ArcGIS platform
Esri is introducing the biggest, most impactful revolution in GIS since first leveraging the power of the Internet at the turn of the century. At the heart of this revolution is unifying organizations around geographic knowledge with an interconnected platform that serves all types of users, on any device, anytime, anywhere. Backing this vision is amazing new technology that turns data into useful information products and makes powerful connections possible.
The only way to benefit from the leaps forward offered by the modern ArcGIS platform is to leverage components and patterns that are only available under the modern pattern.
To continue moving customers forward beyond the status quo and towards what’s possible, Geocortex technology increasingly assumes—and requires—the modern ArcGIS platform.
From licensing focus to technical requirements, modern Geocortex technologies are predicated on embracing modern Esri approaches including:
- Portal-centric deployment patterns; and
- Modern information models.
Change is a given with technology, and it comes at a real cost for organizations not to leverage the many benefits and opportunities Esri’s modern web GIS pattern opens up.
Take for example a field worker using an iPad in an offline environment. Geocortex Mobile App Framework 2.0 represents a huge leap forward from Geocortex Mobile App Framework 1.x. A key difference? Version 2 leverages powerful SDKs (e.g. routing) only available with the latest Esri technology. The field worker can now sign in with an ArcGIS identity, and get to work with a streamlined, functionally enriched application. They never look back.
As the evolution of the modern Esri platform continues, old patterns of deployment will become obsolete and no longer supported. Our focus is on ensuring smooth, effective transitions and helping organizations fully leverage the next-generation of GIS.
