Full Audio Podcast - Episode 11 - Spatial Report

We have this saying in GIS that everything is somewhere. This certainly applies to the utilities industry. Location intelligence is essential for communications, water, electric, and gas utilities to manage complex networks that aim to maximize efficiency and minimize disruptions. To help us understand how utilities of all sizes and types can fully leverage ArcGIS, we are joined by our friend Jenny Fong. She is the Team Lead for Utility Technical Solutions at Esri Canada and is an invaluable resource for utility clients to understand the ArcGIS Utility Network. We then welcome Justin Brassard to our GeoGeek family, as he will be taking the reins as our ArcGIS Enterprise subject matter expert. Today, Justin addresses a common question in the ArcGIS Enterprise community – when do you upgrade? Justin has some tips and thoughts on when to say when and make the plunge to a newer release.
