1. Overview of What's New in 10.8

Want an overview of the 10.8 highlights? Check out this video put out by me and my fellow Product Advocacy Lead, Peter. I'll be the first to admit, we had a blast making it, but we also made a point to cover what we consider to be the top new features and functionality in this release: user type extensions, data store items, new group settings, read-only mode for the ArcGIS Enterprise portal, an information banner, hosted map image layers, and vector tile enhancements.  Watch it for yourself here.

 

And, as an added bonus (or if watching videos just isn't your favorite thing to do), take a moment to check out this blog that also covers what's new in 10.8.

 

2. What's New in 10.8 Portal Administration

With an overview of what's new covered, we can shift our focus to new functionality in specific aspects of ArcGIS Enterprise…  We'll be starting with ArcGIS Enterprise portal administrators.  They tend to have a lot of responsibility, comprised of tasks both big and small.  With each release, the product introduces new functionality to make these tasks simpler.  New features in 10.8 that do just this include the access notice, information banner, and new group capabilities. Jeffrey and Marley's blog does a deep dive on these new features, including what they are and how to configure them within your own Enterprise portal.  Take a look for yourself here.

 

3. What's New in 10.8 Data and Publishing

10.8 has brought a lot of new functionality to data and publishing. This blog goes into the top five new data and publishing related features, including creating data store items, using field descriptions and field value types to provide context about your data, working with auto-calculate length and area values, and publishing hosted map image layers, and other enhancements.  Hilary's blog goes into not only what the functionality is but also when it could be useful for you to implement.  Read more for yourself here.
