The company Bentley has achieved its initial public rating and while in 2010 the company adjusted for exchange rates and acquisitions, they have regained revenue momentum from the downturn. 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.”

On Saturday, I fly to Amsterdam to attend the Be Inspired Bentley Thought Leadership Conference held at the Hotel Okura.
Richard Zambuni, Bentley’s Global Marketing Director for Geospatial and Utilities, and Bob Mankowksi, Vice President Software Development for Bentley’s Civil and Geospatial products, held a teleconference Thursday, April 7 in which they announced the new line-up of desktop GIS products, three new Bentley Map v8i offerings.
Bentley aims to solve three problems with the new line-up.
First, 3D GIS – an infrastructure GIS needs to be able to support 3D geospatial workflows with ease – and because Bentley Map is built on MicroStation technology it is a GIS that is intrinsically 3D. For 3D cities GIS needs to be 3D as well.
Second, Bentley has built a more extensive and a better-documented API for application developers – and anyone can use the API without further permissions being necessary.
And third, Bentley has simplified the product line-up so users can execute geospatial workflows in their infrastructure projects by reducing the number of products available and enhancing the functionality in those products. Those products are:
Bentley Map PowerView
For the visualization and editing of 2D/3D geospatial information – this product replaces Bentley PowerMap Field
For editing, analysis and management of 2D/3D geospatial information – replaces the Bentley Map V8i SS1 and Bentley PowerMap
Bentley Map Enterprise
An entirely new product for enterprise editing, analysis and management of 2D/3D geospatial information
Look for more detailed information on this release in an upcoming edition of GISWeekly.
