Latista logo

Latista says its BI toolset will help users quickly identify and resolve issues by highlighting key indicators and trends, and BIM seems to be firmly on the roadmap. I have mentioned US-based mobile construction solution provider Latista only occasionally since 2010, most recently in connection with its now parent Textura, who acquired the Virginia-based business in November …

More mobile, BIMaaS, ‘Big data’ and M&A?

January 2015 calendar

Paul Wilkinson dusts off the ExtranetEvolution crystal ball to see what 2015 might bring: more mobile collaboration, BIM-as-a-service and ‘Big Data’, maybe. In the noughties, I wrote several New Year blog posts with predictions about SaaS and collaboration in the coming year. In January 2008, for example, I predicted: Further polarisation of the UK construction collaboration …

Aconex’s IPO prospectus reviewed

Aconex prospectus cover

Aconex’s IPO prospectus delivers a wealth of information, but there are some omissions too. I have been browsing through the IPO Prospectus (sent to me – thanks! – by an Australian contact) published on 17 November to support SaaS construction collaboration vendor Aconex‘s on-off-on-again flotation. The exit of private equity partner Francisco Partners is significant, I think, but …

4Projects adds Revit plugin

Viewpoint Revit plugin

Watching the SaaS construction collaboration vendors adding building information modelling (BIM) capabilities to their platforms, it’s clear some have been moving more quickly than others. As regular readers may recall, Asite was one of the first to champion what it called collaborative BIM (cBIM) and, recognising the high market penetration of Autodesk’s Revit BIM authoring software, it added …

Valuing the UK SaaS construction collaboration market

I was recently asked what proportion of the UK market used a construction collaboration system from a particular vendor, and this led on to a conversation about the overall value of the UK market for SaaS collaboration.
