It is also more tightly integrated with the rest of the ArcGIS platform, so that users can complete more of their workflows solely in ArcGIS Pro.

Jack Dangermond, Esri president, introduced major features of the upgrade at the Esri User Conference plenary July 10. The Esri User Conference takes place in San Diego July 10-14. Several focused sessions at the conference will explore the updates to ArGIS Pro.
