I'm looking to build up a hybrid GIS Enterprise environment whereby multiple users can access data at the same time via Arcmap. If possible, we'd like to not have to spend a fortune doing this. My understanding is that I can edit data in GeoServer from ArcMap (with a Production Mapping license) via WFS-T. But through further research, it appears that I cannot get a production mapping license without first purchasing Enterprise. Is this correct?
This is a question better posed direct to Esri (or one of its distributors) but from the System Requirements for Esri Production Mapping it appears that the only required licensing (besides the Production Mapping extension license) is ArcGIS Desktop at either the Standard or Advanced license level.
