In the first two days of Hexagon PPM’s activities during HxGN LIVE in Las Vegas, more than 300 Technical User Forum members learned best practices for their work processes, and another 150 attendees got top level training from leading software experts.
With a conference theme of “The Change You Shape,” the focus this week is on encouraging and empowering Hexagon customers to envision where they want to be and then chart a road to digital transformation that can help them arrive.
During Hexagon CEO Ola Rollén’s “Big Leap” kickoff keynote last night, 3,000 attendees were told that Autonomous Connected Ecosystems – or ACE – will guide the future of technology. Rollén said that while the creation and flow of data has been one of mankind’s greatest achievements, the staggering amount of data is overwhelming and thus hampers many people.
“We need an accelerator to close this gap and put data to work for us,” he said. “This has been the driving force of our research and innovation efforts for the past few years – the cumulative result of which is an enormous leap forward we call Xalt.
“It’s a framework for accelerating our customer’s ability to harness all data simply, even autonomously.”
Xalt’s app-creating technology will make ACE more possible, where data is connected seamlessly through the convergence of the physical world with the digital, and where intelligence is built-in to all processes.
