Planning service
How the planning service works
Bentley will mobilise a project team to work with you to set up, configure and deploy the BC CDE. Under the control of an experienced project manager the activities will be scheduled including CDE infrastructure set-up. Workshops are required to confirm the details of the configuration, followed by the set-up of the system, user acceptance testing, training and deployment. Details of the system configurations will be recorded in a System Protocols document.

Training service provided
How the training service works
Bentley provides three standard training courses
(1) Expert USER - designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the day to day operation of BC CDE to allow the attendee to fulfil the role of a "local" or team subject matter expert.
(2) Adminstration User - building on the content of the Expert User course this module will equip the attendee to administer the CDE. This includes, but is not limited to configuration (for example, managing the terms and conditions of use, branding etc); user management, including creating new users, retiring users who have left, managing membership groups and setting access rights; project setup, including creating new projects, configuring project specific metadata values, granting access; creating and managing simple search reports.
(3) Metadata Schema Management - building on the previous two courses this one covers all aspects of managing the system metadata schema(s), including document types and metadata tags, workflows, forms etc. To complement these, a comprehensive range of e-Learning materials is being developed. It is also possible to develop custom classroom courses, or more often e-Learning materials, that can be incorporated into buyer's LMS.

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
How the setup or migration service works
Bentley will work with you to ensure that the required services are provided to enable you to transition your current solution to BC CDE. Bentley provides services to transfer your existing data to the CDE, typically in a legacy data area from where users can copy required information into the active project spaces. Bentley’s services team will analyse the existing data, configure the receiving spaces appropriately, and where necessary develop scripts to transfer and tag the transferred information appropriately. The migration will be planned and executed as part of the overal BC CDE deployment project.

How the support service works
