Being introduced in 2015, the CONNECT Edition represents Bentley’s next generation of infrastructure engineering
software, providing a purposefully connected environment to improve the performance of infrastructure projects and
assets from design through construction and operations. Leveraging the reach and computing power of the Microsoft
Azure cloud, and supporting a hybrid environment that includes on-premise servers, desktop applications, and mobile
apps, the CONNECT Edition completes the reach of information mobility for advancing infrastructure.
• Application users benefit from a personalized experience with software, learning paths, and content
tailored to their respective roles and direct connections to other users and Bentley colleagues.
• Project teams leverage a collaborative framework to manage all project work and to unify
participants across all stages of project delivery.
• Enterprises gain visibility across their portfolio of projects, and better manage the work of
their connected project participants.
On every infrastructure project, a unique combination of software applications, apps, and services – the Project
Playbook – is recommended for advancing project quality. Each member of the project team will use a fit-for-purpose
subset of the Playbook – a Personal Playlist – to support his or her individual work in a specific discipline or project role.
The use of Project Playbooks and Personal Playlists accelerates project start-up times and improves project
performance and delivery.
