Three ways to get actionable advice at the UC Expo

Blog Post created by SAustin-esristaff Employee on Jun 26, 2017

If you’re going to the  User Conference this year hoping to learn how to get the most from your geospatial technology, I want to tell you about one of the great resources at the GIS Solution EXPO  


The Esri Services area, located in the center of the Expo, is a spot where you can discuss and get best practices, tips and advice from Esri Services experts.  These teams help thousands of ArcGIS users, so they’re a great resource.  They’re available to talk about any topic that fit under six key areas:

  • Strategy and planning
  • Architecture and security
  • Geodata engineering
  • Configuration and integration
  • Workforce development
  • Operational support

There are so many topics that fit under these, like training planning, architecture/system health, installation, performance/scalability, cloud readiness and location strategy, just to name a few.


Here are three ways you can connect in the area:

  1. Engage in a short, one-on-one activity in each topic areas, designed to leave you with actionable results you can take back to your organization.
  2. Listen in on an Esri Services Lightning Talk, hosted in the area every half hour during the Expo.  These talks are a great way to learn focused advice and tips on a key topic in less than 20 minutes.
  3. Ask your questions – you can ask any Esri Services team member in the area your questions, and they’ll find a subject-matter-expert that can offer valuable tips and advice that you can’t find anywhere else.


If you’re looking to connect with a specific Esri Services team at the UC, you’ll find them in the area – teams from Training, Support, Rent-a-Tech Consulting, Esri Managed Cloud Services, and Esri Enterprise Advantage Program.


The Esri Services area is open in the Esri Showcase and GIS Solutions EXPO, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, 9 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Thursday.  If you want to know more about the opportunities available at the area you can see more details on this page, or come see me in the area – I’ll be there during the Expo.


See you there!
