Important Dekho AnnouncementEsri Australia has announced it will be consolidating its product development activities. To this end, Esri Australia has recognised the Dekho product lifecycle has reached maturity. As such, from 1 June 2015, Dekho will not be developed beyond version 4.1.10. Standard support for Dekho however, will continue to be available until 31 August 2016. Moving forward, there are a number of options available to organisations using Dekho and our Business Development team will be on-hand to discuss the process for transitioning Dekho applications to these.
What are your options?The Esri platform offers a multitude of options such as ArcGIS Portal, ArcGIS online and Web App Builder, as well as an array of custom widgets to help you substitute some of the Dekho functionality.
Esri Australia has also recently entered into an agreement with Latitude Geographics, the developer of Geocortex - and its local distributor AAM to establish a technology ‘swap out’ program. Alternatively, you can choose to keep using your existing Dekho solution. The Dekho team released a patch for Dekho 4.0.x customers allowing them to use Dekho with the latest version of ArcGIS10.3, as well as some other minor improvements. Customers currently using Dekho 4.1.x in their production systems are invited to upgrade to the latest version V4.1.10 (hotfix 1), as critical fixes will only be applied to this final version of Dekho.
Who should you talk to?The first person get hold of should be your Business Development manager. He or She will be able to assist you in assessing your requirements and guide you towards the most suitable solution.
