Extranet Evolution glitch: apologies

Apologies to anyone affected by a sudden flurry of apparent new Extranet Evolution blog posts yesterday – they were, in fact, as recipients quickly remarked, reposts of old blog posts. I was doing some extensive blog ‘spring-cleaning’, including dealing with a host of broken links (one of the the consequences of having maintained a blog …

267,000 Extranet Evolution page views in 2014

Blogging on narrow niche topics (SaaS collaboration, BIM, mobile, etc) still attracts a growing audience for ExtranetEvolution. At the end of some years, I do a quick review of traffic to ExtranetEvolution (here are my 2012 numbers, for instance), but it’s not a regular occurence – I didn’t talk about 2013 last year – and the numbers have …

My Bigstep interview: SaaS attitudes are changing

“When it comes to SaaS, there are the early adopters and those who need some more convincing. There are plenty in the construction industry who still view SaaS with suspicion, preferring to keep their information on premise and behind their firewall. This attitude is eroding, but it’s still there.” This is the opening to an …

Thinking BIM and FM

ThinkBIM is helping formulate industry thinking on BIM for FM, but we need more integrated, cross-disciplinary approaches. It is now almost exactly two years since the UK government published its Construction Strategy committing to the adoption of BIM by 2016 (July 2011 launch), and gradually the thinking is becoming more joined up. Over the past …

2012 was the first full calendar year for ExtranetEvolution on WordPress, and I have just been looking at my annual statistics from Google Analytics, and comparing the year’s traffic with that of 2011 (post). During the year, the blog delivered 82,936 page impressions (up over a third on the near-60k recorded in 2011), generated from …

These are being held again, and remain distinctly social. Nominations for the BeAwards 2012 (which opened yesterday) are being crowd-sourced, and will be voted upon by the same crowd. The …

Does Social Media Belong in CAD Applications?

Via the excellent TenLinks newsletter, I found this Cadalyst article by Robert Green on social media in the CAD workplace. Robert admits he is not a big fan of social media in the workplace: I do see some value in it for CAD managers, as long as it is used judiciously. However, I foresee nothing …
