ArcGIS Online and the supporting web API's are missing functionalities required for each department in my company. While I'd rather continue integrating the online platform into our business model, I must resolve a list of ongoing issues preventing my company from moving to the next level.
I'm looking for opinions on how long it will be, if ever, until functionalities will exist that resolve each of the topics below:
So what do you all think? 1 year...5 years...Never? As the administrator for our organization, am I expecting too much from Esri's commercial off the shelf? Bottom line, I must decide whether to wait for ArcGIS Online and the associated apps to become robust enough for my company needs or dedicate time to identify an alternative strategy.
Thank you. This is a thoughtful, well articulated list. I can tell you that we have thought about all of these to some extent, and they require a bit of thought, engineering and time to get them right. While I don't know specific timelines, we are fully committed to building the platform to suit the needs of customers like you. Our product management team has seen your list and may contact you in the future as needed.
