ArcGIS 10.2 is scheduled to be released soon. The exact date has not been published yet, but based on past experience it is likely be soon after the Esri User Conference in July. Many of us have a significant investment in Esri’s ArcGIS Platform, which often includes custom and third party applications that can make the migration process challenging. So what can you expect with ArcGIS 10.2?
eGIS Associates is an Esri Business Partner and has had an opportunity to evaluate the pre-release of ArcGIS 10.2. It includes a number of improvements for the Desktop, Server, Mobile and Online product suite. Esri has added several new Geoprocessing tools, furthered Python integration, released new extensions for ArcGIS Server, improved CAD data support (2013 DWG) and more. One of the biggest enhancements for the ArcGIS 10.2 release is the “Portal for ArcGIS” as a core product. This will allow you to deploy ArcGIS Online functionality behind your own firewall.
