According to a recent press release, “Bentley Systems, Incorporated, a leading global provider of comprehensive software solutions for advancing infrastructure, today announced that Bentley’s new AssetWise CONNECT Edition (introduced at the Conference) and ProjectWise CONNECT Edition (introduced at Year in Infrastructure 2015) uniquely support hybrid computing environments across desktops, mobile devices, and in-house servers. And together, ProjectWise CONNECT Edition and AssetWise CONNECT Edition leverage Microsoft’s Azure cloud services to advance beyond common data environments to connected data environments.”
The release goes on, “During Conference keynotes, Bentley and Microsoft discussed the advancements made possible through their partnership and some of their future priorities working together. CEO Greg Bentley offered user organizations Bentley’s Success Plans for “going digital” through Azure to ensure that “BIM potential” created through digital engineering models can be fully realized in infrastructure project delivery and asset performance. The Azure-provisioned connected data environment experiences and benefits realized by Crossrail, Shell, Maryland State Highway Administration, and Mott MacDonald were cited. The next step for connected data environments is to enable business- and operational-intelligence analytics to have openand live access to information within digital engineering models in order that ‘ET’ (engineering technologies) can be brought to bear with ‘IT’ and ‘OT’ (operational technologies) to improve the throughput, safety, and reliability of infrastructure asset performance.”
