ArcGIS connects maps, apps, data, and people so you can make smarter, faster decisions. It gives everyone in your water utility the ability to discover, use, make, and share maps from any device, anywhere, anytime. ArcGIS Online, Esri’s SaaS system, enables all the portal capabilities of ArcGIS and is currently being used by over 1900 water utilities worldwide. The deployment of ArcGIS Online within your existing, or new, ArcGIS implementation is completely flexible and is described by the three options below:
- Fully hosted deployment – using ArcGIS Online for both its SaaS and data storage capabilities with no on-premises data
- On-premises services deployment – using ArcGIS Online for only its SaaS capabilities, data is stored on-premises
- Hybrid deployment – using ArcGIS Online for both its SaaS and data storage capabilities and using on-premises data
