Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with ESRI ArcGIS.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
I think that the interface and the importing from external data sources and external databases should be simplified a little bit. The product originates from the engineering world and it is doing more to target business users now. I believe that the user interface and the integration of maps with the external databases could be easier for less technical users. There are other platforms that are doing this better than ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute) Maps for Office. Some products are more targeted towards business users. These models show that the integration of external databases with maps could be simplified more to appeal to those markets. This level of user-friendliness is the main thing that is required by business users.
The management functionality along with management from applications outside of coverage are lacking.
