Bentley Systems is Sustaining Infrastructure: creating comprehensive solutions for designing, building, and maintaining buildings, bridges, transit, utilities, and more. Bentley delivers 2D / 3D architecture and engineering design software solutions for the entire lifecycle of the infrastructure asset, tailored to the needs of the various professions—the engineers, architects, planners, contractors, fabricators, IT managers, operators and maintenance engineers—who will work on and work with that asset over its lifetime. Founded in 1984, Bentley today has 3,000 employees in 45 countries and is a global leader in developing engineering and architectural software solutions.
A major component of Sustaining Infrastructure is the inspection and maintenance of the nation’s infrastructure, and these numbers reflect the need and commitment to those objectives:
Inspectors often work in remote areas far from connectivity to their office and have typically relied on relaying paper records to and from their inspection. Even as modern technology has enabled easier methods of electronic recording of results, inspectors still have a need to reference paper drawings of CAD designs and typically are required to overlay observations to drawings manually.
The growth of mobile devices and associated applications present an opportunity in infrastructure design just as much as any other industry. Engineering field workers now have easily portable devices that can be leveraged to deliver documents, mark up designs, record inspection data, and collect location-aware photos and observations.
Recognizing this, Bentley has developed a next generation i-model file format utilizing SQLite (www.sqlite.org) for use on mobile devices. This mobiledgn file format is a self contained database engine holding data and graphics, enabling distribution and querying of infrastructure design projects across every major mobile platform.
Graphic of sdk (get from Mike) slide after this The opportunity : When inspectors bring data and models to the field they have faster access to existing measurements, they reduce identification time of inspectable components, and they increase the accuracy of recorded observations. Bentley’s next generation i-Model format also makes the inspection results portable with design models.

Data exchange is a critical step in the overall operation,maintenance and performance monitoring in water andwastewater treatment systems.Timely exchange of data helps field personnel anddecision makers produce significant savings at theenterprise level. Examples include operational dataanalysis, compliance reporting, asset management,minimizing environmental and health risks, enhancingsystem efficacy through the use of predictive modelingplatforms, driving energy or chemical savings.
Inspiring Innovation in the Ops Water /Wastewater Space (2of 2)The current proposal is the first step towards a moreextensive water ops app market , which will allowwater/wastewater operators brake from the currentformat, which is driven by proprietary technologies anda few key vendors.A possible example, could be a combination ofInstagram in the social media (http://instagram.com/ )and public stuff (http://www.publicstuff.com/ ). In thecase of the FLOWatch example the utility customer willbe communicating directly to the utility through theFLOWatch app.
Interaction and engagement: ◦ One weekly conference call with all hackers to answer general questions ◦ On the third week of the competition a pre-selection process will take place by the Hacketon/ FLOWatch team. ◦ FLOWatch will work with the 5 finalists on FLOWatch interface and sand box testing. ◦ E-mail email@example.com with questions anytime Answers will be timely and may result in ad hoc phone discussions Details on the business opportunity ◦ FLOWatch BD Team will be available to answer questions ◦ A FLOWatch demo will be offered at the beginning of the process Details on technical resources ◦ Sample information exchange schema will be made available upon request at firstname.lastname@example.org ◦ FLOWatch Chief Architect available to answer questions
