AVEVA World Magazine 2011|Issue 103Welcome to a new year, a new-look magazine and new business opportunitiesIt seems that every time I write these introductions there are important and exciting developments to talk about; this issue is no exception! The most conspicuous change you will already have noticed on the cover - PIPELINE has evolved into AVEVA World Magazine. But the most important business development has been AVEVA's recent acquisitions, which were still being finalised when I wrote the last PIPELINE introduction. Let me explain what these developments will mean for our customers.Engineering is all about change. Some changes are driven by the opportunities that AVEVA technology creates, while others arise out of the business, technical and social environments. One of the most significant has been the globalisation of the engineering community.Recognising the importance of this, we felt the time was ripe to create an integrated industry forum - the AVEVA World Community - that brings together engineering professionals from the once largely autonomous plant and shipbuilding industries. This gave rise, in 2010, to the fusion of the successful ISEIT and Marine User Meeting events into three AVEVA World Summits. As you can read here, the success of these events has reinforced our commitment to the AVEVA World Community. This new-look magazine is the second step along this journey, building on PIPELINE's success and encouraging new developments in the future.Successful communities build themselves, and AVEVA World's foundation is the network of formal and informal links that already exist among AVEVA staff, our user community and the many delegates at the Summits. AVEVA will actively encourage this, creating and supporting an environment in which we and our customers can meet and share ideas, both face to face at future Summits and user group meetings, and online through e-newsletters and well-managed social media channels.Turning to the business developments, our new acquisitions are indeed proving an excellent fit with AVEVA, both technically and culturally, and customers have expressed considerable enthusiasm for the business opportunities our expanded services and technology portfolio can now offer them. This issue includes three in-depth articles which describe these acquisitions, how they fit into AVEVA's long-term development technology strategy, and how the rapidly evolving AVEVA NET solution will benefit the engineering industries. As before, this issue also contains a variety of high-quality articles on technology developments and customer successes. The common thread binding all of them is the way in which AVEVA technologies are enablers of success at both the business and economic levels. Ultimately, our technologies bring measurable benefits to people all around the world, something of which we are enormously proud.Richard LongdonChief ExecutiveAVEVA Group plc'Engineering is all about change.
