Bentley Systems Announces Introductory Access Programs for the CONNECT Edition

Bentley Systems, providing comprehensive software solutions for sustaining infrastructure, today announced new programs at the inaugural CONNECTION Event introducing the CONNECT Edition. The CONNECT Edition provides the first common environment for comprehensive project delivery – comprising a common modeling environment, common performance environment, and common data environment. The CONNECT Edition leverages the Microsoft Azure cloud service to span hybrid computing configurations for every project and enterprise. From the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, Pa., the CONNECTION Event series moves on to 28 cities around the globe over the next five months.

Santanu Das, Bentley senior vice president, design and simulation, said, “I would like to thank the users we invited to robustly exercise MicroStation CONNECT Edition through the Early Access Program. Now we are extending an invitation to every MicroStation SELECT subscriber, along with every SELECT Open Access subscriber and Enterprise License Subscriber, to introduce MicroStation CONNECT Edition (SELECTseries 1) into their current toolset – to facilitate this advancement, there is no change from the MicroStation V8i file format.”
