Bentley Systems Launches Virtuosity, a Bentley Company
Bentley Systems, Incorporated announced that its Acceleration Fund has invested in launching Virtuosity, a Bentley company. Virtuosity exclusively offers Virtuoso Subscriptions that bundle — with a Bentley infrastructure modeling, simulation, or construction application — the virtually delivered services of Virtuosity’s experts to accelerate and advance the success of an infrastructure practitioner.
Virtuoso Subscriptions are now available, at virtuosity.com, for Bentley applications, including MicroStation, OpenBridge, OpenBuildings, OpenFlows, OpenRail, OpenRoads, OpenSite, OpenTower, OpenWindPower, AutoPIPE, ContextCapture, LEGION, MOSES, PLAXIS, RAM, SACS, SoilVision, STAAD and SYNCHRO, and Bentley’s iTwin Design Review cloud service. Virtuosity’s expert services, accessible through Virtuoso Subscription “keys,” include a range of training and one-to-one mentoring activities, and on-demand learning and content, increasingly integrated during actual application usage.
Bentley Systems Launches The Cohesive Companies, Advancing Infrastructure Digital Twins to Improve Asset Performance
Bentley Systems, Incorporated also announced that its Acceleration Fund has launched The Cohesive Companies, a wholly owned subsidiary, anchored by the acquisition of Atlanta-based Cohesive Solutions. The new business venture will include the services team from Bentley’s AssetWise business and the offerings of Bentley, Cohesive, and IBM’s Maximo to support the digital transformation of infrastructure owner-operators.
The Cohesive Companies will act as a digital integrator to help infrastructure asset owners upgrade their enterprise environments to leverage digital twins—digital representations and simulations of a physical asset, synchronizing digital context (current existing conditions), digital components (engineering content), and digital chronology (lifecycle change management). Infrastructure digital twins can empower asset operators with immersive visualization and analytics visibility to predict and optimize performance.
Cohesive Solutions is one of the largest North American reseller of IBM’s Maximo enterprise asset management (EAM) software, and Cohesive Solutions’ domain expertise and consulting capabilities can now be extended to advance EAM to infrastructure digital twins.
As digital integrators for infrastructure asset performance, The Cohesive Companies’ charter is the convergence, through digital twin cloud services, of digital engineering models (ET), with IT and OT, for infrastructure and facilities assets. Asset performance digital twins can provide continuous operational insights, enhanced through machine learning, for reliability, efficiency, compliance, safety, resilience and decision support to adaptively sustain and advance fitness for purpose.
