ArcMap vs. ArcGIS Pro
Both ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro are desktop GIS applications designed for creating, editing, and analyzing geospatial data and maps. ArcGIS Pro is a newer, next gen application designed to replace ArcMap, which has been the industry standard for many years. ArcMap will eventually be discontinued, but for the time being both programs are available and supported by ESRI.
