Bentley Continues to Advance Commercial Innovation with Cloud Services Subscription Program

Program Encompasses Comprehensive Range of Bentley Services, Including ProjectWise CONNECT Edition as a Service

LONDON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 2, 2015 — The Year in Infrastructure 2015 Conference — Bentley Systems, Incorporated, a leading global provider of comprehensive software solutions for advancing infrastructure, today announced a new, comprehensive subscription program for cloud-based access to collaboration services and apps, managed services, administration of term licenses, professional services, Bentley Institute LEARNservices, and new CONNECT Edition Cloud Services. With the new Bentley Cloud Services Subscription program, user organizations can subscribe to any or all of these offerings within the framework of a predictable annual budget.

The Bentley Cloud Services Subscription program is designed to be equitable and flexible:

  • organizations will set their subscription level to an annual budget that matches their anticipated usage;
  • only services actually used will be charged quarterly against the subscription balance;
  • the subscription balance never expires, so when actual usage does not match anticipated usage, any remaining balance rolls forward – in other words, there is no “use it or lose it” risk.

Bentley Systems CEO Greg Bentley said, “Connecting through cloud services is so fundamentally valuable to our users, their projects, and their enterprises that we want to eliminate any commercial deterrent to user organizations’ taking full advantage. As an enterprise user of many cloud services, I think we have worked out how to improve on the vendors’ business models we’ve seen to date. We’re introducing all the benefits of being connected, but with full visibility and accountability for costs, and without headaches or risks to budget. We believe that our Cloud Services Subscription program, like our many commercial innovations that have preceded it, provides our users with the simplest and fairest approach possible.

“Our user organizations will continue their SELECT subscriptions for Bentley software licenses they already own, and our larger accounts will continue with their Enterprise License Subscription at a fixed annual fee. However, our ProjectWise passports, visas, and CONNECT Edition cloud services for collaboration, and our other CONNECT Edition cloud services, will be provided through this new commercial approach so that our incentives directly align with the value users generate from their actual utilization.”

The Cloud Services Subscription is comprehensive. Under this program, project delivery or owner-operator organizations can subscribe to:

  • ProjectWise CONNECT Edition as a service, cloud provisioned, on premises, or in hybrid implementations;
  • new CONNECT Edition cloud services, including Scenario Services and Catalog Services;
  • professional services for Bentley Institute learning and for other implementation and configuration requirements;
  • managed services offerings, inclusive of computing resources, software, implementation, and operational support; and
  • term-licensed applications for design, analytical, construction, and/or reality modeling.

The Cloud Services Subscription program offers ProjectWise CONNECT Edition as a service and greatly simplifies ProjectWise licensing. With this program, user organizations will no longer need to pay for, limit, or even keep track of ProjectWise servers – as ProjectWise CONNECT Edition fees are only associated with quarterly passport and visa utilization. Access to ProjectWise services begins with a CONNECTIONS Passport, with more advanced services charged through service-specific visas. User organizations can choose managed (hosted) services, on-premises servers, or any combination, in a hybrid environment. Organizations that wish to use on-premises servers have complete flexibility to deploy any number in whatever architecture best suits their requirements, for optimal performance without additional software cost.

ProjectWise CONNECT Edition (CE) extends the scope of ProjectWise from a “behind the firewall” engineering work sharing solution to an enterprise-wide project delivery environment. ProjectWise CE spans the entire project ecosystem, allowing the extended project team to collaboratively participate throughout the project lifecycle.

ProjectWise CE is availed through Bentley CONNECTIONS Passports and service-specific visas, with actual usage for each logged and settled quarterly:
