The Congress On the Future of Engineering Software Convenes to Map Out Future Software Development

Apr 27, 2001, 01:00 ET from Cyon Research Corporation

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Cyon Research, joined by event
 sponsors Microsoft and Compaq, welcomed over one hundred fifty invited
 engineering software executives, corporate leaders, visionaries and press to
 The Congress On the Future of Engineering Software.  Technology vendors that
 help drive innovations in industries such as automotive, aerospace, high
 technology, engineering and architecture have come together for this two day
 event to present their development visions, map out future product releases
 and plan collaboration between software applications.  Together, the vendors
 at this event represent over $4.0B in annual software sales to the engineering
 community.
 
     Highlights of the technology being showcased by COFES participants are as
 follows:
 
     * Microsoft will be showcasing their developments in enhanced
       collaboration and integration between product design organizations and
       the extended enterprise.  Highlighted at the show is Vision 2002, the
       first Microsoft developed version of the drawing and diagramming
       software application.
 
     * Compaq will introduce new wireless and mobility solutions designed
       exclusively for engineers. For many software developers, this will be
       their first look at these groundbreaking devices that are anticipated to
       redirect new application development in future years.
 
     * Bentley Systems will be presenting new concepts for integrating design
       and asset management systems that they believe will lead to reduced
       costs of operations for design firms and property owners.
 
     COFES participants are responsible for creating and deploying strategic
 engineering applications such as design (architectural, mechanical,
 engineering), project extranets, e-commerce, collaboration, project
 management, facilities management, knowledge management, technical document
 management and others.  Some of the expected topics of discussion include
 collaboration, application development on mobile platforms, new design tools
 and their potential impact, online procurement, application and data
 integration, and knowledge management.
