With new licensing options coming to ArcGIS Pro 1.2, how will you and your company/place of work license ArcGIS Pro?
If you plan to use a mix of licensing options, please choose what the majority will be.
Although I selected concurrent use with a license manager, the reality is that our organization will likely use at least 3 of these approaches to varying extent.
I have to say, especially given the amount of consternation over named-user licensing, that using a GeoNet poll to announce new licensing functionality seems a bit un-enterprise-y. Did I miss some other announcement regarding Single-Use and Concurrent Use licensing?
I agree. Our organization will use at least two...splitting out allocation between concurrent use (for our 300+ users sharing our ~50 CU seats) and named-users (for those that have dedicated, yet CU seats, but may need it outside of our firewall).
But of course, the exact combination will be determined and may change as we actually start testing it out.
So, I did not add a vote at this time.
Yes, we've been talking about adding these licensing options to ArcGIS Pro since last summer (beginning at UC) in various forms. Esri will continue to communicate these licensing options up to and after ArcGIS Pro 1.2 is released, so it isn't missed. We'll have videos available soon that provide more step-by-step details.
Thanks Woody Hynes, that helps a lot, in a sort of unofficial way and is a little exciting that there will be better licensing of ArcGIS Pro coming up.
That said, I do have to chip in that from out here in bureaucracy-land, having a bit more than a month or two to wrap our heads and users' hearts around a new system is always useful.
As a "for instance" in my plaint - I just got done working with a group that needs three months to put a patch like the "ArcGIS Data Reviewer 10.3.1 Patch 3" in place. And that is just for a patch that won't require any direct user intervention (sysadmins install in Citrix).
Since this has been discussed for months (presented as a fait accompli in a technical workshop at the July Users Convention), I expected there would have been more customer / potential user interaction instead of a "throw it against the wall and see if it sticks in the last moments" approach. But hey, if it does actually happen, even if it makes the big step up to having a blog post as an official announcement of it, that will be a lot better than not happening (ow, I hope I didn't scald any SciPy curds out there!)
While "Enterprise" may be a spaceship in some folks' minds, its a business with long supply chains that others have to work in.
Thank you for the valuable feedback Andrew! There will certainly be more announcements that continue to solidify the "official-ness" of these additional licensing options for ArcGIS Pro. Blogs, emails, documentation, videos, etc. I'll make sure to share them here on GeoNet.
We definitely understand that change management is a major undertaking for our users (and your customers, and so on down the line). We want to get the most valuable technology into your (and your customers') hands as quickly and efficiently as possible. We will continue to work harder to give you as much time as possible to prepare the heads and hearts. I like that.
