Bentley Announcements from Year in Infrastructure 2018
We’ve been in London UK for 3 days now attending Bentley’s Year in Infrastructure event and awards, and there’s been many exciting announcements.

Here’s a glimpse of what’s been happening.

We’ll start with the news of iModel.js., what Keith Bentley, co-founder and CTO, Bentley Systems said in his technology keynote on Wednesday,"I've been coming to these conferences for 35 years. This is the biggest announcement we've ever made." This fits into the whole theme of Bentley’s new focus on digital twins and going digital. See more news on digital twins, acquisitions and new product announcements from this week’s event below.

Bentley Acquires Agency9 to Realize Digital Twins for Every City

OpenCities Planner takes advantage of city-scale reality modeling to span GIS and BIM

LONDON, U.K. – The Year in Infrastructure 2018 Conference – 15 October 2018 – Bentley Systems Incorporated, the leading global provider of comprehensive software solutions for advancing the design, construction, and operations of infrastructure, today announced the acquisition of Agency9, based in Stockholm. Agency9 has already provided nearly half of Sweden’s larger municipalities with city-scale digital twin cloud services for city planning and related web-based 3D visualization. Since 2012, Agency9 has taken advantage of reality meshes created by Bentley’s ContextCapture reality modeling software as the digital context for visualizing urban infrastructure assets represented in GIS data, terrain surveys, and BIM models. Bentley’s new iTwin™ cloud services, introduced at the conference, add digital alignment and change synchronization for infrastructure engineering digital twins, and will enable OpenCities Planner (formerly Agency9 CityPlanner)to uniquely serve urban planning requirements at fuller levels of detail.
