I need to define the edition of ArcGIS for Server product to invest for a small scale oil & gas company.
What we need is to be able to:
- Work on a geodatabase with 2-3 concurrent desktop users while a allowing access to a few more desktop users,
- Serve maps from geodatabase (and satellite images and documents from the file server) to internal non-GIS users through web browsers and enabling specific tools like querying and basic geoprocessing on the client side.
- Allow some users feed the geodatabase using their tablets or smartphones,
I read the ArcGIS for Server functionality matrix and got confused. The first part of the document tells me that I need ArcGIS for Server Enterprise Advanced (full product) but the case studies made me think that a workgroup-standard license seems to be enough. Similarly I first got the impression that I need the Portal for ArcGIS product to serve any maps (do not want to use cloud) but then I thought ArcGIS for Server alone can be enough for services like WMS, WFS etc..
My company can invest on these products so I do not consider Open Source platforms but just want to make sure that we are not over investing.
Any advise on this?
