Live from Intergraph 2009

June 17th, 2009 by Susan Smith

The Intergraph conference in Washington, D.C. drew almost 1,000 attendees this week, in spite of economics worldwide. PR spokespeople did say that there are fewer international attendees than in previous years.
Understandably, Tuesday’s keynotes were all about weathering the economic downturn. CEO Halsey Wise spoke of Intergraph’s anniversary this year of 40 years in business. He talked about how great innovation such as “sliced bread” was spawned during the Great Depression and economic strife presents a great opportunity to come up with innovation. Wise said organizations need to be very efficient and adaptable.

Day Two (Wednesday) featured a press conference with Halsey Wise and Reid French. Wise talked about growth plans, saying that they show you what you will and won’t do.

He also suggested that Intergraph has a different geospatial model than its competitors. He said, “If you’re relying on third parties to add value to your technology then you’re not in as strong a position.”

He added that the recession severely impacts those companies that rely on small, undercapitalized resellers and VARs. He said Intergraph aims for $1 billion in revenue by 2012, not counting acquisitions.
