Overview Esri Canada recognizes that you make signifi cant investments in your GIS system and that ongoing upgrades are required to protect that investment, benefi t from new functionality and eliminate the risk of using unsupported technology. If your organization lacks in-house resources or experience to develop a technology migration strategy, take advantage of our extensive experience assisting small to large customers successfully migrate their GIS systems. Partnering with your organization, we'll help you reduce potential downtime and enhance the supportability of your system. Our approach is to fi rst fully understand and document your current GIS system architecture, integration points, and dependencies with 3rd party software or custom applications. This will lead to the development of a migration roadmap that will include both short and long term recommendations, options for implementing failover, development and test environments, and a high level project plan for the migration.
