Esri User Conference 2022 returns to San Diego! We have prepared a focused agenda for ArcGIS Workflow Manager to help you navigate the hundreds of sessions and activities being offered. First, is a brief overview of Workflow Manager and the benefits it offers.

What is ArcGIS Workflow Manager?

ArcGIS Workflow Manager is a scalable workflow management system that optimizes GIS and non-GIS operations by managing, in real time, people, processes, and products in an organization’s enterprise environment. Workflow Manager’s service-driven architecture allows the orchestration of seamless end-to-end workflows within and outside the ArcGIS ecosystem.

What are the benefits of ArcGIS Workflow Manager?

Workflow Manager provides a web app to design and manage work, an ArcGIS Pro extension for advanced editing workflows in desktop, and APIs for extensibility. Workflow Manager is a no-code/low-code that can be easily adapted to fit any organization’s needs. It includes a model-builder like user interface with out-of-the-box step templates, Arcade integration, support for geoprocessing services for custom steps, and web hooks for integrating with other systems.

Some of the benefits are:

  • Real time status and metrics on work performed
  • Improved data quality through centralized work management
  • Increased user satisfaction and productivity through automation
  • Improved knowledge transfer by capturing business tradecraft
  • Ability to combine steps to form trusted, standardized processes
  • Provides a geographic approach with the ability to use work’s location for analysis and reporting
  • Integrated tightly with ArcGIS technology and with other systems in your organization, making it easy to use and feels like one system
