It's Autodesk University Week! #AU2013 the big gather in Vegas to talk shop and have a little fun!
So to celebrate let's talk about Bentley Systems instead :-)
1.5 years many companies were saying “cloud’s not going to happen” and talking about a mobile product 5+ years away. No more excuses for this thinking. Cloud and mobile are here and increasingly changing the game.
Bentley, and other big players like Autodesk, Dassault, and Nemetschek is now realizing it needs to start embracing the cloud, mobile, and Apps. Big old clunky desktop products are thankfully dying a slow death.
They are discovering that Cloud and Mobile are not just buzzwords, they open up new business opportunities and improved customer workflows. Now, with their cloud/app future, they can better tap into SaaS, downstream Owners, uber “bim” models (Bentley’s ones are call i-models), cloud based simulation, bim access, Augmented Reality use for building information, reaching construction i.e. Apps for the field, and the easier to use user experiences.
Will be interesting to watch Bentley Systems progress over the coming months.
