Reading through the articles in this PIPELINE, it's hard not to get excited by the manyways in which global engineering is quietly and professionally meeting the challenge ofsimultaneously raising living standards while caring for our environment.Clean water is the pre-requisite for a healthy society and a healthy environment, so it isparticularly pleasing to find AVEVA software being put to good use in water and wastewater treatment engineering. The multiplier between the cost of the software used andthe huge value it ultimately delivers in public health is incalculable. This really is'enabling technology' that can benefit everybody.Globally, we are now seeing effective, concerted efforts being made to clean up themess we humans create. One of the more conspicuous areas is in ship recycling, which isat last being brought under international regulatory control. Beach breaking of today'svessels is an environmental and human disaster; hopefully, its days are numbered nowthat shipyards like Harland & Wolff are demonstrating the economic and environmentalvalue of controlled deconstruction. Awareness is gradually growing that informationmanagement technologies can deliver value even at this final stage of a vessel's life.AVEVA technology continues to help raise living standards right around the world. Thisyear we mark 20 years of our business growth in China, where AVEVA solutions havebeen a foundation for the country's astonishingly rapid industrialisation. We are alsoproud to be associated with the economic rebirth of Iraq, where vital oil and powerprojects are being executed using AVEVA Plant.In a shrinking world, information exchange becomes ever more important, so AVEVA haslong been pioneering many initiatives to remove the barriers to effective sharing andexploitation of digital information. Two of our senior technologists have beendeservedly recognised by the Fiatech industry consortium for their outstandingcontributions to the achievement of this vision.'In a shrinking world, information exchangebecomes ever more important, so AVEVA haslong been pioneering many initiatives toremove the barriers to effective sharing andexploitation of digital information...'
At the time of going to press, AVEVA has announced agreements to acquire two businesses - Logimatic's MARS division and ADB Systemer AS' oil & gas business - that bring powerful new capabilities to our information management solutions. We have worked with these businesses for several years and have many customers in common, so we are confident that these acquisitions will deliver measurable benefits to the engineering industries. With the acquisitions scheduled to be finalised this summer, readers can look forward to more details in the next PIPELINE. Meanwhile, I am delighted to welcome the two teams to the growing AVEVA community. On the subject of communities, we have this year launched AVEVA World, a new forum for the global engineering industry. With the increasing integration of engineering technology and the projects it supports, it is clear that AVEVA's user community needs a more integrated approach to sharing insights and ideas. So AVEVA World will begin by hosting three World Summits, to bring together delegates from both shipbuilding and the plant industries. As time progresses, AVEVA World will grow and evolve in ways which will serve the needs and aspirations of all our customers. Truly, we do live in interesting times.
