Redlands, California—July 19, 2011 — With encouragement from the National Association of Regional Councils, Esri is now offering enterprise license agreements (
ELAs) to regional governments in the United States. Thousands of federal, state, and local governments already leverage Esri's government ELAs to centralize geospatial data and enhance operations across departments. Extended availability of government ELAs brings unlimited use of ArcGIS software to the staffs of councils of governments, associations of governments, and regional and metropolitan planning organizations.
Organizations such as the Georgia Association of Regional Commissions have already recognized the value of an enterprise-wide GIS and made special arrangements to obtain ArcGIS ELAs. The newly expanded government ELA program will make it easier for regional governments to obtain similar agreements. Because the ArcGIS system supports desktop, mobile, web, and cloud implementations from one integrated geospatial platform, regional governments can apply this technology to everything from collecting and analyzing data to offering innovative citizen engagement tools such as map-based mobile applications.
