Way to go, Data East!

Data East has been selected as the winner of the 2018 Esri Partner Conference in Palm Springs - Turning Pro Award. The award was given to Vyacheslav Ananyev, Director General at Data East.

The Esri Partner Conference is a yearly meeting place of Esri's global partners and distributors who are reshaping the world through the application of geospatial technology. As an authorized Esri Business Partner, Data East participates in this strategically important event every year to meet other Esri partners and peers, to learn the most recent news in the Esri’s policy, and to brainstorm with other leaders in the GIS community.

This year, besides connecting with fellow partners and GIS market experts, there was another weighty reason to be at the conference. Data East has been selected as the winner of the 2018 Esri Partner Conference - Turning Pro Award for transitioning products and services to ArcGIS Pro. This is about our add-in for ArcGIS Pro called XTools AGP. XTools AGP is a result of migration of part of functionality of our popular ArcMap extension XTools Pro to ArcGIS Pro.

Winners of all categories awarded at EPC 2018

“We are very proud to be chosen a winner in this category. This is our first award from Esri, but I hope not the last one. I am so grateful to my brilliant Data East development team that made this migration work happen!”, says Vyacheslav Ananyev, Director General at Data East. “Many of our customers know that we migrated part of XTools Pro functionality to ArcGIS Pro. And they really like the idea that they can keep using their favorite tools in new environment. Now they are asking us how they can migrate their own products and services to ArcGIS Pro. So, we have more work to do, which is great.”
