portable files, easy to share Configuration
UI and functionality

ArcGIS Explorer SDK
Create Add-ins via VS
good help Buttons
Content Menus Toolbars
Tool Palettes
Dockable Windows
Editor Extensions ArcGIS lets you create maps for any application:
Maps for presenting information
Cartographic publications for printing
Maps for analysis and decision making
Maps designed for editing, collecting, and updating data
Real-time maps for situational awareness: Dashboard
Dynamic, time-based maps
Mobile maps
3D maps for visualization and analysis
And much more ArcGIS Solution
Templates ArcObjects .NET, Java, VC++, Cross-platform C++
1000s of classes, interfaces, methods
10+ controls

Are you a Project Lead? How? What? When? The professional GIS workstation Copy into well-known location
(local or network) XCopy-Deployment non-ArcObjects based
e.g. open fGDB tables in non-Esri Apps to view or modify data
access to the low-level fGDB file I/O modules

targeted for advanced developers who require access to the fGDB without an ArcObjects license for purposes of interoperability

does not replace ArcObjects as the recommended approach to interacting with the geodatabase The C++ API allows developers to:
Create new geodatabases
Read the schema of the geodatabase
Create schema for objects within the simple feature model
Read and write data in the geodatabase
Perform attribute and (limited) spatial queries on datasets What? New Developer Product
