At this year's ESRI UC I definitely felt that ArcGIS Server was the big story. Looks like Steven over at Latitude Geographics agrees via the GeoCortex Blog... and then some. Check out Steven's blog for his take on this year's event - if anyone knows server it's him! I like this quote which sums it up nicely... "I predict 2009 will be remembered as being a significant year in the widespread transition from ArcIMS to ArcGIS Server." Sorry I missed the luncheon Steven but I appreciate the invite!
