ArcGIS Web AppBuilder
Now, it’s time for ArcGIS Web AppBuilder to take its bow. While your existing apps will hopefully continue to function, we highly recommend that you consider future-proofing your technology stack, making it standards-based and as open as possible. This approach ensures easy integrations with third-party applications, addressing a challenge we’ve observed over the years.
Several organizations have effectively shifted away from a purely Esri-centric stack, which includes the retiring components, toward a more versatile architecture, often a fusion of Esri and open-source solutions. This strategic shift not only ensured the future-proofing of their technology but also unlocked opportunities for seamless integration with third-party applications, like Power BI. The benefits are clear: increased adaptability, decreased dependence on a single vendor, and the capacity to expand and tailor their technology stack to evolving industry standards and business requirements.
What about your web map apps?
- Now is the perfect time to review and assess your options. With Esri offering more recent applications, you have the opportunity to modernize your web map apps and leverage the latest technologies.
- Implement an Open Technology Stack. This approach not only removes proprietary lock-ins but also provides an open standards-based architecture. Such a setup allows seamless integration with third-party applications, like Power BI.
