Esri launched ArcGIS Marketplace, a destination that allows ArcGIS Online subscribers to search, discover, and get apps and data from qualified providers for use within their organization.
ArcGIS Marketplace provides data from organizations such as DigitalGlobe, RapidEye, AccuWeather and Esri, as well as apps created by Esri and its distributors and partners, such as Latitude Geographics, Azteca Systems and con terra that are built specifically to work with ArcGIS Online. All apps and data can easily be shared with ArcGIS Online groups and users within your organization.
"While there are app marketplaces that serve consumer audiences, only ArcGIS Marketplace is specifically designed to serve the needs of GIS users, making it truly unique," says Johan Herrlin, senior business strategist at Esri. "ArcGIS Marketplace is another facet of the ArcGIS platform. Now you can easily find apps and data services that integrate with your ArcGIS Online subscription, allowing you to get more value out of the platform."
Anyone can browse the listings in ArcGIS Marketplace, but you need to be an ArcGIS Online subscriber to get free trials or make purchases. Because all apps in ArcGIS Marketplace require an ArcGIS Online login, users can access their organization's maps via the apps. Data services acquired via ArcGIS Marketplace are also fully integrated with ArcGIS Online, so you can add them to your basemap gallery or other apps.
For apps and data service providers, ArcGIS Marketplace provides a mechanism to generate leads, provide free trials, grant access to listings and manage subscriptions. If you have a great app or data that you would like to make available to the ArcGIS community, find out what it takes to qualify as an ArcGIS Marketplace Provider.
ArcGIS Marketplace is now available globally. The number of app and data listings will grow over the coming months. To get started empowering your enterprise with apps and data services, visit marketplace.arcgis.com.
