Esri supports many data formats - those that are standards (such as KML and GML), and those that are so widely used people consider them to be standards. We build the ArcGIS platform to work directly with multiple data formats. The ArcGIS Interoperability Extension enables extract, transform and load (ETL) for data formats and data models.
