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.

buildingPoint logo

The Australian collaboration market has been hotting up in recent years, and BuildingPoint is stoking the fires still further.

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 …

Within UK construction IT, building information modelling (BIM) is the hot topic. Even construction software businesses that previously thought it was irrelevant (I’ve …
