I will be participating in a free Enterprise Informatics webinar on the topic of reducing risk, improving efficiency and ensuring compliance. I hope you can join us. Here’s the registration link.

This webinar is very timely. With $155 billion invested world-wide in 2008 and $1 billion in federal stimulus money allocated in 2009 for green energy initiatives in the U.S., the EPC (engineer-procure-construct) industry is facing an unprecedented growth opportunity as new energy construction projects begin around the globe. The EPC industry faces the major challenge of ensuring the visibility and communication of millions of pieces of information related to thousands of milestones and accessed by hundreds of contractors over several years. In order to reduce project risk, it will be imperative to manage the complete information life cycle of project-related activity from the planning, design engineering and construction phases to the operations and maintenance phase. Program managers, project managers/leaders, design engineers, quality/safety managers, change managers and compliance managers should plan on attending

I look forward to speaking at this webinar and answering your questions as part of the forum. – Jon C. Arnold, Microsoft Managing Director, Worldwide Utilities Industry
