INCITE = ThinkProject!

Just last week, I was discussing the state of the Australian AEC collaboration market. Following that conversation, I decided to have a look at what other domestic players in that market had to offer. Putting Aconex into context, I have already mentioned QA Software in the past (see 4 July 2006 post), so I examined what used to be …

How big is the AEC SaaS market?

Suvendu, commenting on my first SaaS and construction collaboration in 2008 predictions post, asks “do you have an idea about the market size of SaaS for Construction industry?” I suppose the answer to the question depends upon how you define the market and then how you measure it…. So, sorry if this is quite a long answer…. …

SaaS and construction collaboration in 2008

After Reviewing 2007, I started thinking about some predictions or trends for 2008. My first instinct was simply to repeat last year’s five, but that would be too easy. Instead, I have decided to update two, and add three new ones. Here are the first two (the others will follow over the next couple of days). …

Aconex results hit by legal row

Some three months ago, I had a look at the 2006 financial results for Australia-based construction collaboration vendor Aconex, noting that its 2007 results would be available in November (as per Aconex marketing chief Frank Carron’s comment). After a slight delay (auditors requested an extension of time as some areas required additional testing), the latest …

New kids on the blog

I see that Aconex joint MDs Rob Phillpot and Leigh Jasper have just started a blog, Built on Collaboration, in which they will “discuss some good industry practices and, along the way, share some … stories about running a business”. I look forward to reading future posts. Welcome to the blogosphere, lads! Tweet

Aconex court case – latest

Somebody asked me today if the Aconex dispute with one of its shareholders had been resolved (see previous post). The answer is no, at least not yet. Court hearings were held on 9, 10, 12, 15 and 16 October, and the next hearing is scheduled for 2 November. A final ruling may, therefore, still be some …

Just over a week since my post mentioning the second running of the Construction Computing Awards 2007, I have just received an email from the organisers saying that online voting for the shortlisted candidates is now under way.
