Cutting out the Middle Man: Connect your ArcGIS Desktop environment to mobile users anywhere

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

TerraGo has always helped ArcGIS® Desktop® users share their data-rich maps with end users….and not just as flat maps, but as interactive GIS-Lite applications, in which end-users can search, query, markup and extract data with the click of a button- even offline.

So it’s no surprise that many customers asked us for a way to connect their ArcMap environment with mobile users to enable cloud-based collaboration. Of course, we already do that today (using ArcGIS DirectConnect) with ArcGIS Server®, Portal® and ArcGIS Online®.  But for some customers, especially some smaller GIS teams or organizations, they need a private cloud for mobility that doesn’t require server infrastructure or installing a private instance of ArcGIS Online on their networks.

Today, we have that and we call it Arc2Edge.  And it works with TerraGo Edge or custom apps built with TerraGo Magic. What can Arc2Edge do for you?

  • Arc2Edge will streamline the publishing of mobile ready content. Often, the user has transfer the data in a staged or piecemeal fashion to make it available on mobile. With Arc2Edge, the user will be able to send the data to Edge in a single transfer.
  • Arc2Edge will make it very efficient to roundtrip data back into ArcGIS Desktop. Again, as opposed to a multi-step, convoluted process involving multiple technologies, Arc2Edge does this directly.

Our customers often face challenges with ArcGIS Online data management. When managing data between your local geodatabase and ArcGIS Online hosted data, the number one question that we hear from customers is, “How do I sync my online data with the data on my desktop?” Well, for many users, you don’t….not if you don’t have ArcGIS for Server to host your services, or if you prefer to host your data in ArcGIS Online.

Currently, there is no “sync” functionality between your ArcGIS Online feature service and the geodatabase you used to publish it. So, what are your options?  There are several options with TerraGo Edge and TerraGo Magic.  Many of them will be addressed in upcoming blog posts and Tech Talks. However, there is one new standout for desktop users.  Arc2Edge.  No middle man (or server infrastructure) needed.

Consider a New Approach to Mobile GIS with a Zero-Code App Builder

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

For over 10 years, our company has really been about extending the power of GIS, often ArcGIS®, to non-GIS users, making it more valuable, more relevant and accessible to all of a business’s end users.

And just like what’s happening with and other more business-centric platforms, the end user demand for custom mobile, cloud-based solutions is growing rapidly.  In Cloud 1.0, everybody rented the same exact web application (like Salesforce).  In Cloud 2.0, companies want the benefit of the cloud but they don’t want the exact same application as their competitor.

So while organizations look to customize ArcGIS® for their industry AND their unique business requirements, today they also want custom mobile apps.  And not just web apps posing as mobile. Not inflexible COTS apps.  Not a simple, standalone, map-based app.   They need real, native, customized, cloud-based apps tailored to their specific business requirements and seamlessly integrated with their enterprise ArcGIS.


The Gift that Keeps on Giving – Custom ArcGIS® Mobile Apps with Zero Code

Monday, December 12th, 2016

This week we will release a new version of TerraGo Edge, featuring the brand new ArcGIS® Direct Connect feature, which lets users connect to ArcGIS Online® and ArcGIS Server® to get direct access to feature layers – so mobile users access them out in the field (like all TerraGo solutions – they can keep working even offline), update features and add new ones and whenever a connection is available, it all gets automatically synchronized with ArcGIS.

For our TerraGo Edge customers, it’s a great new option and adds to the growing list of out-of-the-box ArcGIS integration features including file-based updates, Web Feature Service, REST API and more.

For the growing roster of TerraGo Magic customers, this new feature (like every new feature we build into TerraGo Edge in rapid, agile releases) is available for all their custom apps. That’s the power of the TerraGo Magic framework. In fact, we use the same TerraGo Magic component framework, to publish TerraGo Edge. For customers that want their own branded, customized apps, they can build and manage apps that take advantage of every single new feature we develop for our TerraGo Edge customers.

TerraGo Magic is one-of-a-kind solution that enables our partners and customers to build custom apps (much more than simple map-based apps but an enterprise-ready, cloud-enabled solution with server-side features). And they can build them all with zero code…and zero development operations (support resources, maintenance costs) for the full lifecycle with a fully-maintained platform as a service. Every customer-driven and industry-demanded feature that we develop for Edge is available with Magic. For Magic customers, that’s the gift that keeps on giving.

Spoiler alert: Another new ArcGIS feature will also be available in January 2017 as an ArcGIS plug-in for ArcGIS Desktop®, and ArcGIS Server as a python interface, which will allow users to directly connect to TerraGo Edge (or should I say TerraGo Magic-enabled servers?) from the ArcGIS environment of their choice.
