ARC World Industry Forum – Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for sustaining infrastructure, today announced its first release of eB Insight, the foundation of Bentley’s AssetWise platform. First introduced a year ago at the 2010 ARC World Industry Forum, AssetWise provides operations information modeling that increases the return on investment for owner-operators of infrastructure assets. Bentley’s new eB Insight features powerful asset lifecycle information management (ALIM) capabilities to manage change and to control information throughout the life span of infrastructure, ensuring the delivery of relevant, trusted information, in context, to operations, where and when it is needed. Uniquely integrating configuration and change management best practices with advanced information modeling, the new release enables owner-operators to:
eB software, which Bentley added to its portfolio through its acquisition of Enterprise Informatics in February 2010, is a leading mainstay in nuclear operations – one of the most heavily regulated industries in the world – where it is deployed in power generation units, fuel processing, waste management, and research. Among other sectors globally taking advantage of eB software are energy companies, rail, government, and construction. Representative users of eB include Constellation Energy, Ameren Corporation, Nuclear Fuel Services, Crossrail, Rolls-Royce, City of Las Vegas, Colorado Springs Utilities, CH2M HILL, Aker Solutions, South African Airways, De Beers, and Network Rail.
Sid Snitkin, vice president and general manager of enterprise advisory services, ARC Advisory Group, said, “With the new release of eB Insight, the market is finally getting what it has been looking for – Asset Lifecycle Information Management software that can address both operational optimization of asset performance and engineering content from modifications and upgrades to existing assets. This puts Bentley in the singular position of being able to improve infrastructure asset operations across the entire lifecycle – delivering Project Information Management through Bentley’s ProjectWise and Asset Information Management for engineering and operations content through AssetWise.”
Alan Kiraly, Bentley vice president, Operations Products, said, “With Bentley’s first release of eB Insight, our AssetWise initiative has come to fruition. eB Insight supports the delivery of innovative and robust asset information modeling and management capabilities to owner-operators, enabling them to realize the full potential of intelligent, better-performing infrastructure assets. In Bentley’s continuing development of eB Insight, we are able to take advantage of the company’s extensive project and engineering content experience and knowledge to increase the fidelity with which our AssetWise platform deals with project deliverables throughout an asset’s lifecycle.”
