Executive Summary

Improving asset reliability is a core component of virtually every firm’s operational excellence framework. To meet this requirement, over the last ten years infrastructure software specialist Bentley Systems has invested in the development of a fully-fledged asset performance management (APM) software application. The AssetWise product contains content, workflow and analytics to support the end-to-end asset reliability process. The APM software is partnered by the digital twin PlantSight application as well as the ContextCapture suite which helps generate 3D models. As customers increasingly look for a seamless transition of digital information from the design and engineer phase of capital projects into the operate phase, Bentley Systems is in an ideal position to make this happen. The strategic partnership put in place with Siemens in 2016 has enhanced the potential for Bentley’s AssetWise software to penetrate markets outside built infrastructure. A growing customer expectation for 3D visualizations of entire industrial facilities plays into the historic strengths of the engineering design software offered by Bentley Systems.
