Responding to Change Perhaps one of the hardest parts of a CEO's job is steering a company through the often rapid fluctuations in the global economy. But as we monitor regional and global trends and plan our strategies, one thing stands out: the world's engineering sector continues steadily to grow and strengthen. AVEVA plays a part in this resilience; by enabling our customers to be more efficient or to do more, we help them to anticipate and take advantage of changing market forces. A good example of this is our 3D laser scanning technology, which has proved to be, as we expected, a game changer for the plant industries. With portfolios of steadily ageing assets and increasing demand for their products, operators have been quick to use this powerful tool for planning and executing rapid and safe plant revamps. The combination of best-in-class 3D modelling and laser scanning is at the heart of much of the AVEVA development plans. You can see several excellent examples of just how pervasive the combined technology is becoming in this issue of AVEVA World magazine. Current achievements using AVEVA PDMS™, LFM and increasingly AVEVA Everything3D™ are the result of our development teams across the globe working together to produce truly interactive technology. The enthusiastic reception that the launch of AVEVA Everything3D received has been matched by its strong uptake by our customer community. Early adopters have expressed great satisfaction at its class-leading performance and, most particularly, at the way it interoperates reliably with their AVEVA PDMS installations, even on the same live project. There are enough business risks already without technology updates adding to them. Despite the downturn in global shipbuilding – or perhaps because of it – we continue to see outstanding successes with our marine solutions. Often, these are achieved by becoming more efficient and competitive, as GHENOVA's success demonstrates, but many customers are also taking advantage of the ability to diversify successfully. There is also an interesting story on the use of AVEVA Bocad™ for an offshore wind project, and MAN Diesel and Turbo spoke to us about their own unique implementation of Integrated Engineering & Design. Sadly, with this issue we say goodbye to Magnus Feldt, who retires after ten years as the editor of AVEVA World Magazine. Thank you, Magnus, for reflecting AVEVA's high standards in this super magazine, as well as developing a team to carry on the good work in future editions. On behalf of all at AVEVA and our customers, we wish you a long and happy retirement. Richard Longdon Chief Executive AVEVA Group plc AVEVA World Magazine 2014 | Issue 2 p3
