Bentley Announces V8i Software Portfolio for Infrastructure Professionals

EXTON, Pa.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—November 6, 2008— Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced V8i, the most comprehensive software portfolio for infrastructure ever assembled in a single release. Encompassing products for all of the solution communities served by Bentley, the V8i portfolio leverages and extends core capabilities of its new interoperability platform to provide the breadth and depth of technology needed for fully integrated project delivery. V8is interoperability platform enables Bentley applications to persist, share, and visualize infrastructure asset data in a common way, promoting collaborative workflows. The result is a project environment that combines flexibility, scalability, and robustness, and a portfolio that offers engineers, architects, GIS professionals, constructors, and owner-operators unprecedented choices across discipline-specific integrated software and services incorporated in Bentley solutions. Developed as a collective whole, the V8i software portfolio facilitates streamlined workflows among multiple disciplines and across project teams throughout the infrastructure lifecycle.

The benefits of V8i include increased information quality, enhanced infrastructure asset quality, improved operational safety, reduced project costs, and shortened delivery times. Among the many innovative core capabilities of V8i are intuitive design modeling, interactive dynamic views, intrinsic geo-coordination, and incredible project performance.

We are confident that the release of V8i, which began today and will be completed over the next 60 days, will introduce significant innovation and workflow improvements that set new benchmarks for infrastructure professions in virtually every discipline, said CTO Keith Bentley.

Said CEO Greg Bentley, Our virtually concurrent release of this comprehensive portfolio of products is, by any measure in the software industry, an ambitious undertaking. Its timeliness is underscored by the importance of the challenges met by our users as they strive to sustain the worlds infrastructure and address such critical issues as aging bridges, water system losses, energy and commodity supply, building efficiency, and environmental resilience.

He continued, We have developed V8i with these pivotal needs in mind, including the most critical challenge the global shortfall in engineering resources in relation to infrastructure requirements. Moving emphatically beyond merely computer-aiding the production of traditional deliverables, including design, drawings, and models, our mandate for the V8i portfolio has been to provide our users with the capabilities they need to increase their cost-efficiencies and maximize the return on their investments in innovation, empowering them to design, build, and operate better-performing infrastructure projects and assets.

Two critical advantages of the V8i portfolio are intraoperability and interoperability. Together, they enable broader reuse of project and asset information generated during the design, construction, and operation of infrastructure, and enhance the ability of project teams to choose among multiple software offerings. The intraoperability occurs across and between tightly coupled V8i products without loss of information. The interoperability occurs across necessarily distributed projects where participants can now increase their choice of software offerings from Bentley, loosely but usefully coupled with the work of other practitioners using software based on DGN, PDF, DWG, ISO 15926, IFC, and other industry standards and related APIs.

Some of the key business benefits of V8i to user organizations include:

--   Infrastructure project improvements leading to lower total installed cost coupled with lower operating expenses,
-- More efficient retrofits and modifications throughout an asset's lifecycle,
-- A competitive edge in the face of increased global competition,
-- Increased efficiency, safety, and reliability of infrastructure and the services it provides.
