2012 Predictions: Autodesk on GIS and Utilities

Monday, January 30th, 2012

GIS/Utilities

In 2012, utilities will begin to invest heavily in analytics in order to manage increasingly large volumes of data due to the rise of smart meters. Utilities and GIS companies are also exploring how this information can be used for real-time tracking and operations and to help drive business value.

Smart buildings will become important to utilities. Twenty-five states have energy-efficiency standards or targets and smart buildings can help meet these goals. The building energy analytics market will double between 2012 and 2015, jumping from $193 billion to $402 billion.

Autodesk and Pitney Bowes pen new partnership

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

For about three years, I have been watching Autodesk do interesting things with their GIS division, finally rolling some great mapping products into their Infrastructure Division. The sense was that Autodesk was primarily a provider of software for the built environment, with its GIS products designed with the architect or engineer in mind.

Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler use on the upswing

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Director of Professional Services at IMAGinIT Kevin Breslin said at Autodesk University 2011 this week that they are seeing an uptake of Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler in their work as consultants.

Customers are using it a lot in civil engineering for conceptual design. They can put in roads, move and change things around and tap into their geospatial data and combine that with data in Autodesk Map and Civil 3D. Breslin said the visualization/analysis tool can handle large amounts of data.

Bentley made mention that Autodesk, their main competitor, is “ahead but not out of reach, we have sooner regained revenue than they have in 2010.”

Autodesk 2012 portfolio moves from products to “suites”

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

In a Webex this week Amar Hanspal, senior vice president, Platform Solutions and Emerging Business for Autodesk talked about the 2012 portfolio which will soon be available.

Because customers are successful using multiple products, Autodesk is not offering single products in this release, but rather suites of products for all kinds of design. He called it an “integrated software approach.” A lot of discussion was spent on artists and production facilitators in the entertainment industry, a big customer of Autodesk products.

The suites cost “a few hundred dollars more than an individual software program” but offer more in terms of interoperability and the entire suite will be offered on a USB thumb drive.

Here is a list of the various suites:
Design Suite*
————-
(inc. AutoCAD, Showcase, Sketchbook Designer, Mudbox, 3ds Max Design and Alias Design)

Building Design Suite*
———————
(inc. AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD MEP, AutoCAD Structural Detailing, Showcase, SketchBook Designer, Revit Architecture, Revit Structure, Revit MEP, 3ds Max Design, Inventor, Navisworks Manage and Quantity Takeoff)

Infrastructure Design Suite*

Plant Design Suite*

Factory Design Suite*

Product Design Suite*
———————

Entertainment Creation Suite*
—————————–

* – Software included varies according to Suite versions; Standard, Premium or Ultimate.

I will be attending the AEC Media Summit in Waltham, Mass. in two weeks and will have a full report on the suites at that time.
