AVEVA today announced the outstanding success of its first global AVEVA World Summit, held in Paris 10-12 October. Over 350 AVEVA customer and partner delegates attended from 38 countries and gave an enthusiastic reception to the announcement and demonstration of AVEVA Everything3D (AVEVA E3D) and AVEVA Enterprise Resource Management (AVEVA ERM).
The Summit included high-quality customer presentations and project case studies on a wide range of subjects from companies including Jacobs, Samsung Heavy Industries, AMEC, Worley Parsons, Petrofac, Guangxin Shipbuilding, Lockheed Martin and Technip. AVEVA executives presented new technologies, roadmaps and product updates, including those resulting from the recent acquisition of bocad.
“The summit theme this year was ‘Defining the Future’, said Richard Longdon, CEO, AVEVA. “The new AVEVA E3D and AVEVA ERM represent major new initiatives for AVEVA and demonstrate our continuing commitment to increasing our customers’ business performance and further extending AVEVA’s technology leadership. The Summit also gave us the opportunity to introduce our customers to other new projects which exploit mobile and cloud computing technology. This is a big year for AVEVA and the Summit was a great way to celebrate our first 45 years of sustained growth with the people who helped to make AVEVA so successful – our customers. We intend to repeat this successful global event format next year and I look forward to seeing everyone again at the AVEVA World Summit in 2013.”
The Keynote speakers for the 2012 event were Shell and Microsoft. Shell shared their 25-year history with AVEVA and described the very impressive evolution of the deep-water offshore oil & gas industry in the Gulf of Mexico. Microsoft focused on its technology relationship with AVEVA and the development of solutions based on cloud, mobile and connected devices.
