Could it be true – ArcWeb Services Discontinued?

Little birdies have been telling me that ArcWeb Services is no more – folded into other services and the staff dispersed. There is no more purchase options on their page – only renew. Well, Nature Valley and all you other Arcweb Service customers, I could always recommend another service that is fast, stable, and scalable. You can start for free and then move on to exactly the same API when you are ready to make some bling. Same API whether we host it or if you bring it behind the firewall; novel concept – ain’t it.  If you are interested go ahead and contact me or

    I can confirm that this news is true. ArcWeb is now in maintenance mode, with very minimal support. Most of the ArcWeb staff have either left the company or moved elsewhere within ESRI, and the division is essentially liquidated. Surprising it wasn’t officially announced at the Dev Summit, but I guess the idea was to sweep it under the rug and hope nobody noticed.

    Now’s probably a good time to consider migrating all your ArcWeb-based apps over to a more stable web mapping API.

    I had an opportunity to go down some partner discussions with ESRI on the web service offerings. It was clear during my discussions with them, in March 2007, that they didn’t view it as a strategic component of their business, but more of a lab offering….bound to happen.

    I think it has basically just been renamed ArcGIS Online?
