It's been an orphan here.  The GIS component has been kind of hung off the side 
of our public health disease reporting major application. The vendors took a 
copy of our db, went away, and came back with an install, then went away again. 
End of support. They created a series of very ugly views in order to populate 
their data tables. The view definitions definitely aren't in order therefore 
the pretty pictures we are generating don't actually relate very well to the 
reports we create on the same data. We got zero training on how it works.  So, 
another contract will be let to get an another GIS guy/girl to come in and 
rebuild it and maintain it.  I was surprised that the local community college 
has several GIS classes that teach the ESRI GIS product.
