ESRI Presence in Geofencing Solutions
Geospatial technologies are being increasingly integrated with the mainstream IT in the daily lives of millions of consumers. Esri has embraced web services and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) for delivering GIS data and functionalities through a network of distributed servers, with resources that are loosely coupled, but can be integrated on demand. The ArcGIS framework makes the GIS functionality accessible on desktops and mobile devices, from servers embedded in other applications, and on the web. Esri’s business strategy revolves around creating and providing products and solutions to its clients for its future growth. For instance, the company’s robust accounting balance sheet builds confidence in its investors and partners, and makes them invest in the future growth avenues. For instance, in July 2017, Esri enhanced the world geocoding service for its ArcGIS platform. This update helped users access 25 additional countries, including Cuba, Bangladesh, and Libya, where the street addresses could be located. The company helps SMEs as well as large enterprises in anticipating opportunities, predicting the best actions, and executing them in their business processes. The company is also working toward serving the needs of its clients more efficiently by technologically updating its products and solutions. The company has been competently expanding its business lines by undertaking efficient inorganic strategies. For instance, in August 2017, Esri, the global leader in spatial analytics, entered into an Enterprise Agreement (EA) with Smart Dubai, the government agency leading Dubai's smart city transformation, to provide the ArcGIS technology to 44 entities across the government. The agreement is being used by Smart Dubai for its smart city platform, Dubai Pulse, to integrate and map data for better decision-making.
