Practical Digital Workflows for Addressing Key City Initiatives

Course Information

With urbanization and the continuous threat to infrastructure from climate-related forces, it is time for cities to seek solutions to help minimize the chronic stress on current infrastructure as well as mitigate, respond to and recover from acute shocks from these recurring events. As cities continue to advance “smart” initiatives, city leaders continue to challenge city departments to digitally advance in support of those initiatives. But there still are information silos inhibiting collaboration and information sharing, which slows initiatives and creates an uneven pace of digital advancement across city departments. The digital city is data-centric using a city-wide digital twin to improve infrastructure and deliver services. All data owners/users benefit from an open and connected environment. Bentley Systems offers a comprehensive set of solutions to help cities manage the data associated with and generated by their infrastructure assets.
