The ESRI salesman hits the road to sell the ELA

Google is littered with press releases announcing customers signing up for ESRI Enterprise License Agreements. Most of these seem to be larger government organizations and corporations. But what about the Small Municipal and County Government Enterprise License Agreement Program we heard so much about last year? I’ve heard from a couple people that they’ve had difficulty with the ELA because they don’t “fit” into the program. As a ESRI Business Partner I am hopeful that this program would allow ESRI customers to get out of antiquated ArcIMS and ArcView 3.x applications and into the more modern ArcGIS 9.3 stuff. It would appear at least on the surface that it hasn’t been successful but maybe Google isn’t telling the whole story.

Anyone care to comment on the ELA program and its success/failures?
