Our intrepid product manager has started a practice of publicly posting the development roadmap for InfraWorks 360, and the latest update to our roadmap is now live on the community forum. Please give it a read, feel free to leave comments, and give Sarah a kudo for giving you insight into where the future of InfraWorks 360 is headed!.
InfraWorks 360 Roadmap Check In - January 2017
It's true that time flies when you're keeping busy! In the 6 months since I first shared the InfraWorks 360 product roadmap (here), two more updates have been released and I've had the opportunity to meet dozens of you. The September update introduced new capabilities for reality capture, road and bridge design, as well as quite a few other enhancements. Not long after that, the team hit the road to attend a variety of industry conferences, including I-HEEP, the AASHTO annual meeting, and the Country Road Administration Board's annual Road Design Conference in Chelan, Washington. Then it was time for Autodesk University. All the while development teams continued to extend and enhance InfraWorks 360, gearing up for the update that released last Friday, January 13th.
In this post I'll go over some of what's in the January update and provide some insight into the current product roadmap. But first a reminder for regular readers and a heads up for new readers about the ground rules:
- We're sharing some of the highlights of our product development roadmap to give you a sense of the general direction InfraWorks is heading. There's a lot more work going on behind the scenes and this roadmap doesn't reflect everything the development teams are working on.
- Roadmaps are plans, not promises. We're as excited as you to see new functionality make it into the products, but the development, release, and timing of any features or functionality remains at our sole discretion.
- These roadmaps should not be used to make purchasing decisions.
Cool? Good. Let's get to the fun part. On the roadmap shown below, planned work is shown in the gray boxes. Things already delivered are shown in bright green. For things delivered in last Friday's update, look for the fire icon - those enhancements are hot off the presses!
