Bentley’s Ongoing Commitment to Interoperability and Open Standards Includes New Enterprise Interoperability Services
EXTON, Pa. – March 17, 2020 – Bentley Systems, Incorporated, a leading global provider of comprehensive software and digital twin cloud services for advancing the design, construction, and operations of infrastructure, today announced that Alan Kiraly, Bentley’s SVP for asset and network performance, has been elected to the board of MIMOSA, the not-for-profit industry trade association dedicated to developing and encouraging the adoption of open standards for physical asset lifecycle management.
At the same time, Bentley announced the availability of AssetWise Enterprise Interoperability Services that help extend the connected data environment to the entire enterprise, enabling seamless access to multiple data sources and third-party systems, and delivering a common view of asset information as part of a digital twin’s asset information. These services provide generic, broad interoperability based on MIMOSA CCOM BOD standards and specific connectors for INFOR, Oracle EAM, Microsoft Dynamics, Esri ArcGIS, and IBM Maximo, as well as certified integration with SAP.
Alan Johnson, president of MIMOSA, said, “Bentley has been a constant and consistent supporter of MIMOSA and our supplier-neutral approach to interoperability. They have worked pragmatically with us to ensure the software vendors can deliver on our mission, and I am delighted with the commitment Bentley is showing to both supporting our OIIE (Open Industrial Interoperability Ecosystem) OGI (Oil and Gas Interoperability) Pilot and with Alan Kiraly joining the board.”
Alan Kiraly, senior vice president, Bentley Systems, said, “Bentley has always been a leader in driving forward interoperability between systems and supporting open, industry-driven standards. Interoperability provides a huge benefit to our users, and I am extremely proud of what my team has been able to deliver to date with AssetWise Enterprise Interoperability. I look forward to working with MIMOSA to accelerate the adoption of open, industry standards and enable our users to lower their total cost of ownership.”
MIMOSA is a 501 (c) 6 not-for-profit industry trade association dedicated to developing and encouraging the adoption of open, supplier-neutral IT and IM standards enabling physical asset lifecycle management spanning manufacturing, fleet and facilities environments. MIMOSA standards support key requirements for Critical Infrastructure Management on a cross-sector basis, addressing the highly heterogeneous and interdependent nature of critical infrastructure. MIMOSA standards and collaboratively developed specifications enable a Digital Twin to be defined and maintained on a supplier-neutral basis, while also using that Digital Twin to provide Context for Big Data (IIOT and other sensor-related data) and Analytics.
About OGI Pilot
The Oil and Gas Interoperability (OGI) Pilot is a public interoperability testbed jointly run by MIMOSA in cooperation with multiple other industry associations. The Pilot uses the Open Industrial Interoperability Ecosystem (OIIE) architecture and feeds back lessons learned from implementations of OIIE Use Cases. The OGI Pilot’s purpose is to support the broader adoption of the OIIE within both the oil and gas industry (upstream and downstream) by facilitating collaboration between participants and demonstrating the current capability of software products to support the OIIE Use Cases and Scenarios.
