Has your local government adopted a cloud-first policy? Or perhaps it has already moved servers to a cloud-based infrastructure.

In either case, Software-as-a-Service gives you access to a secure, scalable solution hosted by Esri that gets you up and running quickly with minimal hardware provisions.

Enterprise deployment

The Local Government Access Program provides two types of enterprise deployments of ArcGIS Enterprise — either using client resources or a managed solution hosted by Esri Australia.

To minimise costs associated with server hardware, software and maintenance, a managed solution would be ideal — allowing quicker deployment and guaranteed support services.

On the other hand, if your local government already has the resources in place, a deployment on your infrastructure or cloud would also be possible.

A scalable and easy-to-deploy solution for local governments

The custom-built Local Government Access Viewer provides an easy-to-use interface that fulfils the requirements of local governments with predefined workflows for immediate deployment.
