Bentley Systems, Inc., a leading global provider of comprehensive software solutions for advancing infrastructure, announced it has successfully upgraded Crossrail's Common Data Environment (CDE) for asset information through Bentley's AssetWise managed services to a hybrid cloud-computing platform powered by Microsoft Azure. This provides a single location for storing, sharing, and managing information for approximately 1 million assets.
Europe's largest construction project, Crossrail has been designed in a virtual environment for 3D, 4D, and 5D BIM, powered by Bentley's comprehensive modeling software. Bentley's asset information management solution, AssetWise, based on Bentley's eB technology, manages the engineering and asset information in the Crossrail project and provides a complete, federated view of "digital railway" information.
"We're proud of our work together with Bentley Systems, one of our most important global collaborators," said David Epp, alliances director, Microsoft. "We're particularly impressed by Crossrail's groundbreaking ambition in building both a digital and physical railway and are delighted to have had the opportunity to come together with Bentley to address the challenges and requirements of this world-class endeavor."
