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 …

BIM = Better information mobility?

McGraw Hill Information Mobility

A US survey suggests growing benefits of mobile information, but its respondents weren’t enthusing about mobile access to digital models.
