Estimated 3-to-5-day engagement. 

GCS ArcGIS Cloud Architect Offerings

GCS Cloud Architects develop organization’s ArcGIS cloud computing strategies. These strategies incorporate cloud adoption plans, cloud application design as well as cloud management and monitoring. Additional capabilities include designing for modern cloud application architectures such as cloud native and serverless architectures.

ArcGIS Cloud System Architecture and Design

Designed for organizations building new or migrating an existing GIS to the cloud, the System Architecture and Design offer will equip organizations with the information required to plan a cloud environment to support their needs. Whether considering a range of market leading cloud infrastructure providers, Amazon AWS or Microsoft Azure, or debating a hybrid strategy of on premises and cloud, GCS will lead activities to assess requirements, lead discussions, and evaluate cloud design alternatives. The purpose of the engagement is to determine an appropriate cloud GIS architecture for the business drivers and technical requirements identified during this activity. As a result of these activities organizations will receive cloud configuration recommendations in a Cloud System Architecture and Design document.

Estimated 5-to-10-day engagement. 

ArcGIS Cloud Readiness and Roadmap

Leveraging the System Architecture and Design recommendations, GCS will provide consulting services to develop a Cloud Readiness Assessment and Migration Roadmap. The Cloud Readiness Assessment will classify the organization’s GIS existing environment, workflows, services, data, and applications against cloud migration criteria and considerations. The Migration Roadmap will outline recommended migration approach, milestones, deliverables and a schedule.

ArcGIS Cloud Proof of Concept (PoC)

Organizations looking to migrate to the cloud may not always feel confident in how a cloud-based environment will work for them. The Proof of Concept (PoC) is designed to equip organizations with the experiences and information they need to confidently make a cloud migration decision and plan. GCS will work with organizational resources to establish baselines for key performance metrics (KPIs). The PoC will take place over three phases: Discovery, Experience, and Reporting. During the Discovery phase, GCS will explain key cloud KPIs and establish baseline measurements. For example, baseline measurements can be based on current on-premise environment metrics vs desired future metrics. While in the Experience phase, organizations will have access to ArcGIS which GCS will setup, configure, and deploy in the cloud. Throughout the PoC, GCS will help organizations continue to measure KPIs. At the end, organizations will receive a report of how the system performed against the KPIs and how those compared to the baseline measurements.

GCS ArcGIS Cloud SysOps Offerings

GCS SysOps Administrators are responsible for managing, using and operating ArcGIS systems on cloud platforms. They are responsible for maintaining and managing ArcGIS Cloud infrastructure, managing bills, and optimizing the cloud resource costs.

ArcGIS Cloud Capacity Planning

GCS determines cloud environment and capacity recommendations for ArcGIS products based on business goals and operational metrics. These recommendations are based on Esri best practices and specific to the organization’s profile and requirements.

ArcGIS Cloud Performance and Scalability Testing

With the ArcGIS Cloud Performance and Scalability offering, organizations will be able to know if their cloud environment will scale as planned with confidence. During this engagement, GCS will implement a test plan, validate the planned cloud environment, run a standard battery of testing scripts, and test execution to measure how workflows perform and how your cloud environment scales under load. Results of these tests will be summarized in a document at the completion of testing.

ArcGIS Cloud-based GIS Health Check

This proactive activity is designed to provide early detection of potential issues by reviewing an organization’s cloud environment. After walking through a standard set of evaluation tools, organizations will understand how their GIS systems compare to Esri best practices, where improvements can be made, and receive recommendations based on the findings.

ArcGIS Cloud GIS Performance Assessment

Unsure what is causing slow performance in your cloud environment? Are your cloud costs growing faster than expected? This service will investigate cloud GIS system performance, including bottleneck detection and service bloat. During this engagement, GCS will collect performance metrics, identify problems with system configuration and architecture, and discuss components that impact performance. Tools and methodologies will be used to isolate and diagnose performance issues. A report with findings and recommendations is provided.

Performance Tuning

Is a specific GIS operation experiencing slow performance? This service will focus on addressing the performance pain points already identified in the Cloud GIS Performance Assessment. GCS will examine operation workload, application configuration, and the operating environment. Tools and methodologies will be utilized to trace and measure the effects of parameter changes and optimization.

GCS Cloud GIS Analyst Service Offerings

ArcGIS Cloud Map and Data Migration Services

Organizations can get support from GCS to migrate a physical or virtual GIS environment to a cloud-based environment. Cloud migration typically involves the migration of data, services, and application(s) and GCS can help with any of these activities. During the engagement, GCS can employ a technical knowledge transfer approach, initially doing, then working side-by-side with organizational resources and concluding by ensuring that the organization’s resources are able to perform work on their own.

ArcGIS Cloud GeoProcessing Service and Workload Architectures, Implementations, and Performance Tuning

Customers expect quick results, so your geoprocessing services need to be fast and efficient. Since ArcGIS Server can accommodate multiple clients at once, inefficient services can overload your server. The more efficient your services, the more clients can be served with the same computing resources. GeoProcessing architectures in the Cloud need to be designed to advantage of elasticity and cloud native offerings. GCS’s team of ArcGIS Cloud experts design, build, and maintain optimal GP workloads based on Esri and Cloud best practices.

GCS ArcGIS Developers and DevOps Administrators

GCS helps you move away from monolithic architectures to Cloud-Native server-less architectures.

ArcGIS Modern Cloud Architectures

GCS facilitates the assessment process for refactoring or re-architecting your existing system to utilize cloud-native features. Whether you moved to the cloud with a “lift-and-shift” of your existing on-premise architecture, performed some re-platforming, or not yet in the cloud, GCS can advise a path forward using Cloud-Native technologies to meet your business needs.
