We are making a number of changes to the eB product lines. These changes are detailed below.
1. eB Insight Services -> eB Information Manager
Highlighting the role of controlling information and managing change throughout the asset lifecycle, eB Insight Services has been renamed as eB Information Manager.
2. eB Insight Asset Definition Services -> Bentley Asset Registry Server
The Bentley Asset Registry Server combines the capabilities of the previous eB Insight Asset Definition Services and the change management capabilities previously delivered by eB Nuclear Configuration Services, which has been discontinued. Engineering Designer which previously required eB Nuclear Configuration Services would now require Bentley Asset Registry Server.
3. eB Insight Records Management Services -> Bentley Records Management Server
To better position our Records Management capabilities as a capability applicable to both eB and ProjectWise users, the product has been renamed. At this time, ProjectWise users wishing to add Records Management capabilities will need to deploy eB Information Manager, Bentley Records Management Server and the ProjectWise Connector.
4. eB Insight FTR Services -> Bentley FTR Indexing Server
A simple renaming in support of an overall re-branding of capabilities that may become common across multiple product lines.
5. eB Insight Kofax Scanning Services-> Bentley Kofax Scanning Server
6. eB Insight SDK -> eB Information Manager SDK
Simple renaming to maintain alignment of the SDK module naming
7. eB Insight QuickLinks -> eB QuickLinks
Simple renaming to maintain alignment of the module naming
1. eB Insight Transmittal Services
Going forward the existing transmittal capabilities in eB will be licensed using the Bentley Transmittals Services license. This means the same license can be used to enable transmittal capabilities for eB and ProjectWise systems. Today, the same existing eB transmittal capabilities are still used, but in future releases this will be replaced by the new Bentley Transmittals Services software implementation. Users of this product will be migrated to Bentley Transmittals Services, as of their next contract renewal
2. eB Insight Handover Services
This product has been discontinued and the capabilities included in the core eB Information Manager to reduce the overall number of product licenses required. This functionality is now included in eB Information Manager. We will no longer accept new sales of this product, but will allow account to keep this under SELECT for now.
3. eB Data Quality Manager
eB Data Quality Manager is being replace by a new data loading capability specifically for eB Information Manager called Bentley Data Quality Server. The new Bentley Data Quality Server is built on top of Microsoft SQL Server Integration Service. Transition of existing users from the previous eB Data Quality Manager product (based on Lifecycle Server) to the new Bentley Data Quality Server will need to be handled on a case by case basis with the assistance of Bentley Professional Service. This is being replaced with the new product Bentley Data Quality Server. We will no longer accept new sales of this product, but will allow account to keep this under SELECT for now.
4. eB Insight Print Services
This separate license is no longer required. The printing services within eB Information Manager are now enabled by licensing the ProjectWise InterPlot Server instance that the printing services are dependent upon.
