Receives Strategic Investment from Bentley Systems<p style="text-align: center;"><em>New investment will increase global footprints of both organizations in municipal and investor-owned water and wastewater infrastructure</em></p> <p>Denver, Colorado USA – Digital Water Works, a leading global innovator of digital twin solutions for smart wet infrastructure, today announced a strategic investment in the firm by Bentley Systems. The investment allows Digital Water Works and Bentley to expand their leadership in bringing superior infrastructure digital twin solutions to municipal and investor-owned water and wastewater utilities worldwide — solutions with the power to enhance their operational visibility, improve efficiency, optimize capital spending, and lower total cost of ownership of their wet infrastructure. <br /> <br /> Digital Water Works’ strategy is to implement its own integrating applications around best-of-breed commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software such as Bentley Systems’ OpenFlows and iTwin offerings, which Bentley will license directly to Digital Water Works’ customers. The software partnership is not exclusive; Digital Water Works will continue to collaborate with leading software vendors and engineering and technology consulting firms to best serve the water industry. By virtue of the investment, Bentley will be entitled to appoint two directors to the Digital Water Works board. <br /> <br /> With deep industry knowledge, world-class capabilities, and cutting-edge technology, Digital Water Works is uniquely positioned to help water and wastewater utilities deploy a scalable, flexible, and holistic digital twin geospatial infrastructure platform based on industry standards and COTS software. This revolutionary geospatial platform enables utilities to operate and sustain more resilient wet infrastructure while maintaining compliance, meeting appropriate levels of service at the lowest total life cycle cost, and increasing customer satisfaction. <br /> <br /> Combining real-time intelligence with spatial analytics, digital twins enable pervasive simulation of water distribution and sewer collection systems with immersive visualization and analytics visibility of decision support results for operational performance monitoring and efficiency optimization, powered by artificial intelligence. Digital twins also enable work and asset management (both discrete and linear assets), reliability-centered maintenance with bad actor and root cause analysis, and risk-based strategic lifecycle asset management to optimize life cycle costs, extend infrastructure useful life, and prioritize, manage and deliver capital improvement projects.<br /> <br /> “We’re pleased and honored to receive this strategic investment from Bentley,” said Digital Water Works founder and CEO Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, Dist.M.ASCE, NAE. “Their global footprint and product leadership in infrastructure digital twins for the power, oil and gas, transportation, and mining sectors are extensive, and our collaboration for the broadened application of their experience and solutions portfolio will greatly benefit the water industry and deliver tremendous value to our customers.”<br /> <br /> Boulos said that the infrastructure digital twin product suite would be rolled out in phases during the next five to ten months, and that “Next month, we will launch an early adopter program for progressive water and wastewater utilities and engineering firms who want to help with the product design plans and then beta-test the software.”<br /> <br /> Bentley Systems CEO Greg Bentley said, “Bentley Systems’ investment in Digital Water Works signifies our recognition that a specialist ‘digital integrator’ entity will play an indispensable role in helping infrastructure owners to take full advantage of digital twins’ potential. We believe that our industry-leading OpenFlows modeling software and iTwin Services offerings can advantageously anchor water and wastewater utilities’ advancements in going digital. But we believe even more strongly that an open approach, supported by an independent integrator leveraging our unprecedented open-source solution environment, can achieve the greatest benefits for each utility, while accelerating the learning curve for all. <br /> <br /> “And given his track record towards digital advancement for the world’s wet infrastructure utilities already, there could be no one more effective than Dr. Paul Boulos in leading their engineers and engineering firms, through Digital Water Works, to realize the unlimited opportunities now opened up by digital twins.”<br /> <br /> <strong>About Bentley Systems</strong><br /> Bentley Systems is the leading global provider of software solutions to engineers, architects, geospatial professionals, constructors, and owner-operators for the design, construction, and operations of infrastructure. Bentley’s MicroStation-based engineering and BIM applications, and its digital twin cloud services, advance the project delivery (ProjectWise) and the asset performance (AssetWise) of transportation and other public works, utilities, industrial and resources plants, and commercial and institutional facilities.<br /> <br /> Bentley Systems employs more than 3,500 colleagues, generates annual revenues of over $700 million in 170 countries, and has invested more than $1 billion in research, development, and acquisitions since 2012.

Construction Projects Using Microsoft HoloLens 2 at Mobile World Congress Event<p style="text-align: center;">Bentley’s SYNCHRO XR brings the benefits of mixed reality to users in the <br /> architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry.</p> <p>EXTON, Pa. – Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading global provider of comprehensive software solutions for advancing the design, construction, and operations of infrastructure, presented <em>SYNCHRO XR</em>, its app for immersively visualizing 4D construction digital twins with the new Microsoft HoloLens 2, which Microsoft announced during a press conference at <em>Mobile World Congress</em> in Barcelona. <br /> <br /> Selected as a Microsoft mixed reality partner representing the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry, Bentley demonstrated how with SYNCHRO XR for HoloLens 2, users can interact collaboratively with digital construction models using intuitive gestures to plan, visualize, and experience construction sequencing. <br /> <br /> Project digital twin data is visualized with the HoloLens 2 via Bentley’s connected data environment, powered by Microsoft Azure. With the mixed reality solution, construction managers, project schedulers, owner operators, and other project stakeholders can gain insights through immersive visualization into planned work, construction progress, potential site risks, and safety requirements. Additionally, users can interact with the model together and collaboratively experience 4D objects in space and time, as opposed to traditional interaction with a 2D screen depicting 3D objects. <br /> <br /> Noah Eckhouse, senior vice president, project delivery for Bentley Systems, said, “Our SYNCHRO XR app for HoloLens 2 provides a totally new way to interact with digital twins for infrastructure projects. Users benefit from a new perspective on the design and a deeper, more immediate understanding of the work and project schedule. Instead of using a 2D screen with a mouse and keyboard, the user can now walk around the model with their body and reach out and grab digital objects that appear to co-occupy physical reality. This is a powerful way to review work that is completed and to prepare for upcoming work at the jobsite.”<br /> <br /> Menno de Jonge, director of digital construction for the Royal BAM Group, said, “We are currently using SYNCHRO and HoloLens 2 mixed reality solution for the construction site for a large museum project in the city of Rotterdam. The real need for a digital transformation in our industry is about avoiding rework at our construction site. Using this technology, we can easily visualize the construction schedule. Then, we can see if we are behind in schedule, we can flag any potential problems or issues, look into the problems, and get back on track.”<br /> <br /> Alex Kipman, technical fellow, AI and mixed reality at Microsoft, said, “The newly announced Microsoft HoloLens 2 is a self-contained holographic computer that enables hands-free, heads-up interaction with digital models. It builds on the breakthrough innovation of HoloLens and is even more immersive, more comfortable and delivers industry-leading value right out of the box with partners like Bentley. We’re excited to work with Bentley, a mixed reality partner, to provide the opportunity for customers to take advantage of the HoloLens 2 and SYNCHRO XR technology to experience a new dimension of creativity and teamwork for their AEC projects.”<br /> <br /> Microsoft’s Mixed Reality Partner Program is focused on enabling and supporting solution providers who are committed to building mixed reality solutions. Upon acceptance to the program, Microsoft provides training, technical assistance, sales and marketing enablement, and business planning. <br /> <br /> In 2018, Microsoft awarded Bentley Systems as its <a rel="noopener noreferrer" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="http://www.dacn.tw/en/about-us/news/2018/june/14/bentley-named-2018-microsoft-citynext-partner-of-the-year" target="_blank" title="learn more">CityNext Partner of the Year</a>.<br /> <br /> <a rel="noopener noreferrer" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="http://www.dacn.tw/en/Perspectives-and-Viewpoints/Topics/Campaign/Synchro-and-Microsoft" target="_blank" title="learn more">More about SYNCHRO</a> <br /> <br /> <a href="https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/hololens" title="learn more">More about HoloLens 2</a> <br /> <br /> <strong>Caption and Image:</strong><br /> <a rel="noopener noreferrer" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="http://www.dacn.tw/-/media/Images/Press%20Release%20Images/2019/SYNCHRO_Hololens_MWC_1" target="_blank" title="view image">Bentley’s SYNCHRO XR and Microsoft HoloLens 2 bring the benefits of mixed reality to construction sites. </a></p> <p><strong>Attribution</strong>: Image courtesy of Bentley Systems</p> <p style="text-align: left;"> <a rel="noopener noreferrer" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="http://www.dacn.tw/en/about-us" target="_blank" title="learn more">More about Bentley Systems</a><br /> <br /> <br /> Bentley, the Bentley logo, and SYNCHRO are either registered or unregistered trademarks or service marks of Bentley Systems, Incorporated or one of its direct or indirect wholly owned subsidiaries.
