Enterprise License Agreements (ELA)


An enterprise license agreement (ELA) is your fast track to organization-wide GIS. An ELA gives you ready and unlimited access to ArcGIS software along with timely and expert assistance from Esri so that you can focus on building a successful and scalable enterprise GIS.

With an ELA, you can

  • Reduce complexity
    Unite software licensing into a single organization-wide agreement
  • Optimize technology spending
    Lower the costs of software compliance and asset management
  • Increase flexibility
    Build a scalable system that aligns with your business objectives
  • Maximize value
    Provide mapping and GIS services where it’s needed; when it’s needed

No matter what type of organization you are, we can provide an ELA that fits your requirements.
