ArcGIS Desktop Officially Ends With Version 10.8x

Our longtime business partner Esri (Redlands, CA USA) has officially announced the retirement of the ArcGIS Desktop product line, inclusive of ArcMap. The official announcement is available on their technical support website and it reads as follows:

IMPORTANT NOTE: ArcGIS 10.8.2 is the current release of ArcMap and will continue to be supported until March 01, 2026. We do not have plans to release an ArcMap 10.9.x. This means the 10.8.x series will be the final release series of ArcMap and will be supported until March 01, 2026.

Dig-Smart customers currently running the Dig-Smart Enterprise product, inclusive of Dig-Smart Analyzer will be directly impacted. Dig-Smart Enterprise including Dig-Smart Analyzer use ArcMap by Esri to power the front end of the ticket management system. By proxy, Dig-Smart, LLC will officially retire the Dig-Smart Enterprise and the Dig-Smart Analyzer products in parallel to Esri’s retirement schedule of ArcGIS Desktop and ArcMap.

All Dig-Smart Enterprise customers will be required to migrate to our Dig-Smart Fusion products to continue to work in a GIS centric environment. Please contact your Dig-Smart support staff for assistance in scheduling your migration.
