Installing Parallels onto a Mac allows the Mac hardware to host a Windows file based VM, similar to VMWare workstation. This allows windows applications to then be run on the windows VM yet accessed from the MacOS environment. This gives the feel of a native Mac application, yet it’s running from the windows VM. Parallels offers an ability to run ArcGIS Pro in a way that creates a user experience that feels like you’re running a native Mac application. This is different than Bootcamp, which is the partitioning of the hard drive to host separate operating systems. using a Mac with Parallels 15 and configured as described in the link below should run ArcGIS Pro 2.3 and later with an acceptable user experience.
