ArcGIS Online provides a cost effective and easy way to share data with
those both in and out of your organization using the power of the cloud.
Once you publish your data how do you keep it updated. One of the easiest
ways is to create a quick web application using one of the many templates
available from Esri. 


You can also use ArcGIS Desktop 10.1 to edit and update data you are serving
up using ArcGIS Online. All you need to do is the following:


1.      Bring your service into ArcMap. (Look at the bottom of the Catalog
Window for My Hosted Map Services)  

2.      Then right click the layer group (NOT the individual layer)

3.      Go to Edit Features and select Create Local Copy for Editing

4.      Make whatever edits you need to just like you would any other layer.
Make sure to save edits.

5.      When you're done, right click on the layer group again

6.      Go back to Edit Features and select Synchronize Local Edits with


Works like a charm. You do need to make sure Editing is enabled for the
Feature Service you are trying to edit.
