ESRI special prices for municipalities

image It seems that the ESRI licensing change is not just happening At the web application level, but also in business modalities. ESRI is currently offering special prices for small municipalities, whose population is less than 100,000 inhabitants in order to take advantage of the capabilities of its platforms ... and at the same time reduce piracy :).

These licenses extend under the line known as Enterprise (ELA) and apparently cover the unlimited use of different ESRI products, although it is only available for the United States.

We do not know the value of the "special prices", although we had previously seen it in the Bentley line, when it offered the Select license for small municipalities, that for an annual price the entire line could be used, an aspect that becomes interesting for a municipality that You want to modernize geoengineering processes, especially for civil works design (Geopack, STAAD, Water), Architectural Animation (Triforma), and CAD applications in general (Microstation, Descartes, Geographics)

Although ESRI's prices are high for “small municipalities”, it is not a bad initiative for those who are using this platform irregularly in a country where copyright regulations are severe. To find out about prices and more information, you should refer to the State distributors.

Either way, we must recognize that ESRI products are used by more than 300,000 organizations worldwide, which include the largest 200 cities in the United States, more than two thirds of the 500 Fortune ranking companies and more than 7,000 educational institutions.
