Bentley Systems, an infrastructure engineering software company, announced that it has acquired eagle.io, provider of a cloud-based environmental monitoring platform.
“We are very excited to have the eagle.io team join us,” stated Cory Baldwin, vice president of infrastructure IoT at Bentley Systems. “Their years of experience in the sectors they serve, particularly water, are invaluable to us. Working jointly will enable the accelerated expansion of our cloud platform focused solely on simplifying the creation of evergreen digital twins connected with real-time, real-world data.”
eagle.io provides a highly configurable and customizable cloud-based environmental monitoring platform serving water and met-ocean, meteorological and mesonet, air and noise, and construction related applications. The platform works well in processing data from a multitude of environmental IoT sensors and generating valuable insights. Customizable dashboards offer a flexible way for systems integrators and consultants to develop insights about the performance of the assets.
eagle.io complements the IoT technologies that Bentley previously acquired, including sensemetrics and Vista Data Vision. The combination of eagle.io’s customizable monitoring platform with sensemetrics’ end-user-focused applications and Vista Data Vision’s self-hosted solution will help the company create a more holistic infrastructure IoT offering.
The acquisition also marks Bentley’s first step into the environmental monitoring market. eagle.io’s expertise in the industry positions Bentley to better serve users in this new area.
eagle.io CEO Ben Starr said, “We are proud to be a part of Bentley’s global infrastructure engineering software solutions. We see great value in combining our customizable, environmentally focused software with Bentley’s infrastructure IoT offering. Evergreen digital twins provide an opportunity for asset owners to combine and understand both internal and external information streams in real time, allowing for better protection and management of the asset and the surrounding environment.”
