Open standards, open standards, open standards !

Many years ago, people were happy to download a desktop application on their machine to view a file sent by a partner or a colleague.
Today, Enterprise Visualization enables Real Time Collaboration between design and manufacturing centers that are on each side of the planet. It provides a centralized mechanism to review, discuss and argue on any documents and track the decisions over time. It delivers self sufficient visual work packages for your field engineer to take with them while going on site. And the list keeps growing...
In short, Enterprise Visualization is now a value enabler more than a self contained application and as such, needs a simple yet powerful integration framework that is open and standard based so it can empower the overall enterprise stack built around many systems developed by many vendors including Oracle.
We started to heavily invest in open standard APIs several years ago and have increased the investment since then. Our integration SDK which is the foundation to connect AutoVue to data repositories is now fully web services based, AutoVue ships with more and more visualization services such as printing, conversion or text extraction and more recently, we started to package our printing service as a separate product for customers who require only this capability in some parts of their business processes.
It has been and continues to be an exciting journey to transform our application into an enterprise enabler and to see how creative our partners have become in developing advanced business solutions leveraging our core Enterprise Visualization capabilities. Today, many people use AutoVue as part of a bigger enterprise solution, from citizens applying for ePermit, to customers buying products on line who see their choices dynamically rendered, to field crew leaving the office with printed work packages executed over night by a workflow AutoVue is plugged into...
Although it's great to discuss with customers who use AutoVue today as a full application to collaborate on documents, the thing I am the most proud of is to hear some of our users suddenly realize that they have been using AutoVue in their critical business processes for years without ever knowing about it. Delivering business solutions efficiently in a non invasive way using open standards is the key difference between simple viewing and Enterprise Visualization and is what will help customers transform their business and drive process innovation. Onto the next visual enabled business process....
