HCCI Product Info Day 2015

Reflections on HCCI Product Info Day 2015

A sense of excitement and discovery filled the air as all the product units of Hexagon Capability Center India (HCCI) assembled under one roof for a historic day dedicated to cutting-edge innovation. A key HCCI event, Product Info Day is conducted by HCCI, the key R&D incubation center of Hexagon.Thanks to the wonderful turnout of over 800 employees, the interesting products displayed,and the exchange of ideas, the 2015 edition of the event was a resounding success!

Looking back on that day, the most exciting and futuristic technologies, products,and services from the world of core engineering were on display by the product units of HCCI —Intergraph Process, Power,& Marine (now Hexagon PPM); Intergraph Security, Government,& Infrastructure(now Hexagon Safety and Infrastructure); NovAtel; Leica Geosystems; Hexagon Metrology;and Hexagon Geospatial —along with the services units of Intergraph PP&M and SG&I.

A smorgasbord of HCCI’s latest technological breakthroughs across various fields was on display in over 20 demo stalls set up in the venue. The showcase included the latest solutions for public safety;the precision measurement and imaging technologies used in construction, agriculture, and related sectors;the tools for the formation of smart cities; 2D/3D modelling and designing solutions for oil, gas, and power plants;mobile responders for security services;geospatial workflows to extract information;and many other applications of the day’s cutting-edge innovations.

In attendance that exciting day were more than 800 employees from the various product innovation units, apart from select Indian customers and business partners, students of colleges in Hyderabad (who earned themselves a ticket to the event by winning a special quiz contest), and professors of universities associated with HCCI through the Campus Champions program. And when you bring such a diverse set of people together in an environment open to learning, what else can be expected but an informative exchange of ideas and interactive demonstrations? The event successfully bridged the gap between the end users and solution creators by allowing them to pick each other’s brains for valuable,first-hand information and insights.

As one of the visitors, from one of the leading research and development units of the government, perfectly put it, "Such an experience is transformational and reaffirms the immense potential that can be unearthed in terms of sheer innovation."

And that’s exactly what happened at the Product Info Day 2015. It was an incredible experience for all participants as they celebrated the pioneering technologies that have been instrumental in the making of engineering marvels around the world.

As we reflect on HCCI Product Info Day 2015, we recall an amazing celebration of the spirit of learning, exchange of ideas,and innovations HCCI continues to embody to this day.
