Pinellas County, Florida is taking an aggressive and modern approach to streamlining business practices by leveraging Esri Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) technology. They wanted to eliminate dependencies on legacy 3rd party products as well as streamline workflows, increase operational awareness, and stay current with Esri technology. To accomplish this, the client adopted a hybrid approach and leveraged templates from ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS for Local Government, and Esri sample viewers.

The goal of the eGIS Data and Application Migration project was to create an entirely COTS solution for publishing geographic data and services to public and internal governmental agencies. This solution achieved the application and data requirements of Pinellas County, re-used existing infrastructure, and allowed them to explore more cost-effective solutions provided by Esri.
