No, ArcGIS Business Analyst continues to be enhanced and improved with new capabilities and data updates. For using Business Analyst with ArcGIS Online you can either sign up for a trial or buy a premium app license. more info here:
I am very curious to know what made you think about its replacement.
In addition to what Praveen Srivastava mentioned, the current release of ArcGIS Pro introduced Business Analyst:
Business Analyst Comes to ArcGIS Pro! | ArcGIS Blog . It means that Esri considers that Business Analyst offers important analytical functionality and you can expect the functionality to be expanded, not only in Desktop, but also in your portal.
So, I know some of the extensions have changed names over the years. I guess that was my real question, is the name changing or is the Business Analyst name here to stay.
Hi Praveen - I watched a few YT videos where you explain BA web - they are really great by the way. I am not sure if you are still responding to questions 🙂
My question is as follows: I have access to BA web app and to the Pro Desktop with BA extension. I am really unclear about the difference between ArcGIS online, vs the Pro desktop with BA extension, vs just BA web app?
According to the ESRI help page, the Feature Analysis in Pro is not available when using "ArcGIS Online" as my active portal. My institution does not run ArcGIS Portal server on campus, so there is unfortunately no way to use these features.
Should we be running an ArcGIS Portal? 😕
Sorry I hope this makes sense - thank you for your help.
