Project control – Unit4 targets market with BC Assure

As SaaS construction collaboration technology vendors have sought to differentiate themselves from document management providers, we have seen how some have focused on various areas of workflow (eg: contract administration, project costs, health & safety) in recent years. In the process, one or two vendors have dropped, or reduced, their use of the term ‘collaboration’, …

Who sits at the Sword CTSpace table?

The latest Sword-CTSpace news release concerns an integration between the company’s on-premise FusionEnterprise platform and ECM systems EMC Documentum and Microsoft SharePoint 10 (somewhat confusingly, Sword-CTSpace talks about Engineering Content Management, as opposed to Enterprise Content Management, a term much used by other firms and industry analysts). I only mention this as the news release …

Collaboration vendors unveil (old) plans for deeper interoperability

Last month, members of the UK-based Network for Construction Collaboration Technology Providers (NCCTP) announced plans to provide greater integration between their different applications (see news release). At the time, I was too busy to write about it, but the topic cropped up briefly in conversation with the Incite guys (post) recently, so I’ve had another …

Evening, Standard?

Earlier this week, technical people representing several construction collaboration technology vendors (all members of the NCCTP) met at Constructing Excellence‘s offices in central London. The purpose of their meeting – as has just been described by Aconex‘s Rob Phillpot (see NCCTP: Flogging a dead standard?) – was to take the next steps towards creation of …

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). …

More website woes

I talked last month about the problems of websites suddenly becoming unavailable. After BIW, 4Projects and ePIN, the latest UK collaboration vendor to suffer a website outage is Sarcophagus. [Update (27 November): Site back live again.] Tweet

Goldfish coincidence

Last year, UK collaboration vendor ePin updated its website and I remarked upon its use of goldfish images. I have just been forwarded an email from Emap Glenigan, the business information people, and noted that they also employed goldfish imagery. I am none the wiser about what the images are supposed to convey – being a …

Website woes

Last week was a bit of a nightmare. The main BIW corporate website, www.biwtech.com, suddenly became unavailable due to a server problem at the hosting company used by our website designer (important note: the production servers delivering BIW’s collaboration applications are, of course, totally separate – with a different company, Attenda – and have remained online throughout). The hosting company …
