ArcGIS Enterprise is our premium GIS server based product. There are about 70 ArcGIS Enterprise implementations in Ireland ranging from single server implementations up to one which has about 40 servers.
ArcGIS Enterprise can be hosted on your local network or on the cloud and increasingly our Customers are opting for ArcGIS Enterprise as a managed service. For the Customers that use it, ArcGIS Enterprise provides the same user experience as ArcGIS Online but hosted on your own compute infrastructure rather than as a SaaS offering.

In addition to what’s available on ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Enterprise also provides a range of additional capabilities such as Image Services, Big Data Analytics, GeoAnalytics, Utility Network Management and support for multi-user enterprise Geodatabases on SQL Server, Oracle and PostgreSQL.
An ArcGIS Enterprise base deployment is comprised of a Portal, a Data Store and a GIS Server, the other capabilities can then be optionally added via additional server types. In the case of ArcGIS Enterprise our engineering efforts typically focus on performance, GIS functionality and capability and on enterprise considerations such as security, availability and resilience.
