Intergraph Security, Government & Infrastructure (SG&I) participated in HxGN LIVE, Hexagon’s annual international conference, in Las Vegas, NV, the first week of June. This year’s HxGN LIVE conference was once again a rewarding opportunity to meet, network and learn how our customers are making smarter decisions every day. We had a chance to recognize a few of our innovative customers during my keynote with the annual ICON awards. These awards not only recognized an outstanding group of industry-leading organizations, but highlighted key innovation, thought leadership and commitment to customers and the advancement of new technology.
Our annual conference is an exciting opportunity for Intergraph and Hexagon customers and employees, allowing them to exchange ideas, learn from each other and partner to deliver the next generation of smart solutions.
Following the theme of “Smart Solutions,” we showcased numerous solutions and many of our innovative customers presented how they are using Intergraph software to make an impact on their organizations. We also highlighted key synergies with other Hexagon companies and demonstrated how our technologies continue to evolve.
During the keynote, I provided conference attendees a sneak peek into their future – a future built on smart solutions. Contrasting hard work with smart work, I outlined three areas that help governments and businesses work smarter: real-time data, predictive operations and mobile technologies. By keeping up with trends such as these, Intergraph can provide customers comprehensive, integrated solutions that solve their specific business problems. The result is smarter decisions and better results.
Speaking of better results, Teresa Smith and Mark Doherty led the panel discussion, Perspectives LIVE, on how smart technologies stay one step ahead of market needs. Joining them on stage were Intergraph visionaries Mladen Stojic, Kalyn Sims and Michel Gilles. The panel addressed many exciting emerging technologies and innovations and how our customers can benefit from those technologies, focusing on five distinct areas: sensor integration, predictive/analytic technologies, UAVs, cloud and mobile.
We also announced a few changes to help our customers better interact with Intergraph employees. Intergraph SG&I launched a new global magazine, Perspectives. Perspectives explores important issues and trends affecting Intergraph SG&I customers, their industries and the world. The magazine examines industry-specific technologies and solutions for public safety, transportation, utilities and other public and commercial services.
And finally, we wrapped up the week with the unveiling of the new customer support web site, the Intergraph SG&I Support Knowledge Management Web Portal. This new site will allow our customers to access the most up-to-date support information in one, centralized location.
In all, Intergraph SG&I had over 100 sessions, more than 25 hands-on training sessions, four Icon Award winners, two panel discussions and two keynote sessions. Stay tuned to the Intergraph CONNECT Blog for HxGN LIVE session webcasts and recaps in the coming months. And make plans to join us back in Las Vegas next year at HxGN LIVE from June 2 – 5, 2014 for more innovative ideas and opportunities to engage and learn more about our exciting technologies.
Building smarter solutions and futures – that’s shaping change
