First MIKE by DHI user group meetings of the year held in Vietnam

The very first user group meetings of 2012 were held with great success on March 8 in Hanoi in Vietnam, closely followed by Ho Chi Minh City on March 13.

Approximately 30 and 40 hopeful, enthusiastic, and well prepared participants were gathered for these 3rd annual meetings in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh respectively. During the meetings the participants gained and shared knowledge about various aspects of their work within the world of water, and the meetings provided a good opportunity for the participants to discuss and share essential elements of their daily work across business areas.

The two user group meetings consisted of a mixture of items prepared by the users as well as by representatives from DHI. In order to learn about various possible uses, opportunities, and challenges of MIKE by DHI software, selected users presented real-world case studies including topics such as storm surges, multi-reservoir operations, flood projects, hydraulic calculations, and irrigation planning. Furthermore, the participant, learned about new software features and technologies presented by Torben S. Jensen, and Henrik Bundgaard from DHI, which provided insight into the continuous developments and possibilities of MIKE by DHI software.

“There were some interesting user presentations, which raised some good and instructive discussions among the participants. The participants responded very well to the Software News presentations and especially appreciated our focus on modelling speed for the new 2012 release,” says Henrik Bundgaard from DHI.

The user group meetings in Vietnam kicked off a highly interesting year with many MIKE by DHI user group meetings scheduled across the globe.
