Bentley Systems announces availability of OpenGround Cloud

Bentley Systems recently announced the availability of OpenGround Cloud. It is a new cloud service that enables geotechnical professionals to access reliable geotechnical data for better engineering decision support and to improve collaboration across the entire supply chain.

OpenGround Cloud brings a complete solution for planning, data entry, borehole log production, lab data management, reporting, visualization, and more to the table. The cloud service enhances and improves the collaboration across multi-disciplinary project teams and significantly increases the value of geotechnical data by making it easily accessible to primary project stakeholders.

Scott Devoe, senior director, geotechnical information management, Bentley Systems, stated in the press release that OpenGround Cloud offers a single enterprise repository of multiple data sources for all ground investigation projects, which is a long-sought improvement for geotechnical and geological professionals.

It makes retaining copies or exchanging data completely unnecessary. Consequently, OpenGround Cloud helps minimize project delays due to encountering unforeseen ground risks during construction.

Richard O’Brien, the principal process engineer with Atkins, said that from a risk management perspective, that identifying the gaps in data, highlighting risk items and, if required, assisting in the planning of targeted ground investigations has become more trouble-free. From the tender process to detailed design, they are now able to undertake data-driven assessments to complement their decision-making.
