We did it, V8i Launched!

It’s was more than “just another busy day” for me last Thursday, it was the launch day for the V8i Software Portfolio!  

The event itself was absolutely amazing, for those of us at Bentley and for many users who turned out to hear the introduction to V8i in person, and for all of the people around the world who tuned in to the global broadcast.

Keynote speakers included CEO Greg Bentley, CTO Keith Bentley, Senior VP of Bentley Software Bhupinder Singh and VP of Platform Product Management Harry Vitelli. The presentations and broadcast went off fantastically.

You can watch all of the Global Live Broadcast Videos again online here.

But the real thrill for me was talking to users to capture their reactions. All I can say is “Wow!”  I’m awestruck by your responses. When we have invested so much time and energy into these products, it means so much to us all at Bentley to see and hear your responses.

The V8i portfolio emphasizes intraoperability and interoperability, for broader reuse of project and asset information generated during the design, construction, and operation of infrastructure, which enhances the ability of project teams to choose among multiple software offerings.

Find out more for yourself—visit the V8i website. Also, be sure to isit  the V8i User Experience Videos - they are my own favorite part of our launch website. Essentially the videos show real people telling a story about V8i and what it means for practitioners from the perspective of an architect, structural engineer, construction manager etc.

You may also download the V8i Software Portfolio Brochure and print it to read at your leisure. or read the new Interoperability Platform White Paper . They are both well worth a mug of coffee and a comfy chair.

If like me, you are mostly motivated by our users' reactions to V8i then check out the web pages "What Users are Saying ."

This week and next I’m in Europe catching up with more users as we launch a series of BE Seminars, where we’ll continue to introduce V8i to as many people as we can. So I guess there is no slowing down for me! Be sure to visit our website for more details on the BE Seminars.

More to come from Europe...
