Migration scenarios

Available with Business Analyst license.

Current Business Analyst Server customers (pre-10.7) will generally fall into one of the four migration scenarios below.

For all the scenarios described below, USA solution customers are encouraged to leverage their access to additional server staging cores to test and evaluate their updated systems in a pre-production environment.

Existing Business Analyst Server customers using the Business Analyst web app on-premises

  1. Install, or upgrade, a 10.7 base ArcGIS Enterprise deployment
  2. Install, or upgrade, the Business Analyst 10.7 release version of the Business Analyst web app on the ArcGIS Enterprise portal machine.
  3. Uninstall original Business Analyst Server software and data, delete the DefaultMap service and demographic map services.
  4. Federate an additional 10.7 GIS Server to the ArcGIS Enterprise base deployment (if one does not already exist).
  5. Run the new GeoEnrichment Server setup on the federated server.
  6. Run the post-installation wizards to configure the GeoEnrichment Server environment and to install data to the server.
  7. Access the content and analytics of the updated GeoEnrichment service from the on-premises Business Analyst web app.

Existing Business Analyst Server customers using other apps supported by GeoEnrichment

This includes customers who are currently using other ready-to-use apps such as Business Analyst for ArcGIS Pro, the portal map viewer and its Enrich Layer analysis tool, and any custom apps or integrations.

  1. Install, or upgrade, a 10.7 base ArcGIS Enterprise deployment
  2. Install, or upgrade, the Business Analyst 10.7 release version of the Business Analyst web app on the ArcGIS Enterprise portal machine.
  3. Uninstall original Business Analyst Server software and data, delete the DefaultMap service and demographic map services.
  4. Federate an additional 10.7 GIS Server to the ArcGIS Enterprise base deployment (if one does not already exist).
  5. Run the new GeoEnrichment Server setup on the federated server.
  6. Run the post-installation wizards to configure the GeoEnrichment Server environment and to install data to the server.
  7. Access the content and analytics of the updated GeoEnrichment service from supported applications and integrations.

Existing Business Analyst Server customers with geoprocessing services and widgets

Customers who have published geoprocessing services with Business Analyst geoprocessing tools should not migrate to GeoEnrichment Server at the 10.7 release since they will not be supported. Current Business Analyst Server customers who fall into this category should request a maintenance release of the Business Analyst Server software at 10.7.

Esri is working on a new set of Business Analyst web tools that are expected to be supported by Business Analyst Enterprise and GeoEnrichment Server at the 10.7.1 release.

Existing customers with custom applications/integrations that consume legacy Business Analyst Server REST service endpoints

The original Business Analyst Server software supports several legacy service endpoints that existed before the newer GeoEnrichment service endpoints were introduced at the Business Analyst Server 10.5 release. For example, the Business Analyst Server Spatial Overlay service endpoint is functionally equivalent to the newer Enrich service endpoint under GeoEnrichment.

Applications and custom integrations that consume these legacy endpoints are not ready to migrate to 10.7 without updating them to consume the newer equivalent service endpoints. Current Business Analyst Server customers who fall into this category should request a maintenance release of the Business Analyst Server software at 10.7 while they plan for and work on their application and integration updates.
