Cadac Organice sounding bullish

Preliminary results released by Cadac Organice suggest the Netherlands-based vendor of Microsoft SharePoint-based solutions for engineering document management had a successful 2011. It highlights its introduction of a cloud-based solution – discussed in October 2011 with Gert-Jan de Kieviet, right, following his recruitment from Sword-CTSpace – and also mentions that David Parry, former CTO and co-founder …

CTSpace name to disappear

The latest change of ownership of CTSpace – whose software portfolio includes Software-as-a-Service and on-premise construction collaboration technologies – saw the company disposed of by Lyon, France-based Sword Group and acquired by IDOX last week (see IDOX acquires CTSpace for £11.6m cash). Some reports suggest this will mean the disappearance of the CTSpace brand as it …

de Kieviet thinks SharePoint is the future

To paraphrase Mandy Rice-Davies, Well, he would, wouldn’t he! Following my recent blog post about his move to Netherlands-based SharePoint reseller Cadac Organice, Gert-Jan de Kieviet (right) talked to me about his move from Sword-CTSpace and his somewhat controversial view that Microsoft SharePoint is the future of construction collaboration. BuildOnline and CTSpace In the mid-2000s, …

Former CTSpace MD now at CadacOrganice

Over the past few years, I have seen numerous employees move from one construction collaboration technology vendor to another. This ‘musical chairs’ process has been common among sales people – I’m still in contact with some individuals who have worked for three or more providers – but it also occasionally extends to directors. The latest …

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 …

Personnel changes, and an iPhone app, at Sword CTSpace

When I wrote about the forthcoming ICT4Construction conference (taking place in central London next Thursday, 28 November), I mentioned John Pomeroy was speaking on behalf of construction collaboration technology vendor Sword CTSpace. He isn’t any more, though, as he joined unstructured information software provider MarkLogic as vice president, Europe in August (see news release). John’s …

CTSpace launches FusionLIVE – end of the road for BuildOnline and Citadon

Catching up with recent announcements in the world of construction collaboration technologies, I see that Sword CTSpace has launched a new Software-as-a-Service application, FusionLive, that looks like it will eventually replace both the BuildOnline and Citadon applications inherited when Sword acquired CTSpace in December 2007 (post). The 7 April news release quotes Gert-Jan de Kieviet, …

Sword subsidiaries Cimage and CTSpace to merge

Just over 15 months ago, following the acquisition of CTSpace by the Sword Group, I briefly mentioned existing Sword subsidiary and UK-based EDMS vendor Cimage (see CTSpace put to the Sword). Last month, Sword announced that Cimage and CTSpace would become a merged entity, Sword CTSpace. MD of Sword CTSpace and operations director for Sword …

Newsletter gives CTSpace update

I have just been forwarded a copy of the latest e-newsletter from construction collaboration vendor CTSpace (a business with an interesting past – see related posts below). The email features an editorial from Gert-Jan de Kieviet, the company’s managing director of its EMEA operation. In it he writes glowingly about the aftermath of last year’s …

De Kieviet’s Gambit – more CTSpace ‘spin’

The latest spin on CTSpace comes in a one-page ‘Company focus’ feature in UK trade weekly Building (see PDF on CTSpace’s website). At first glance, the article, written by Mark Leftly, makes CTSpace seem a very credible venture, but I think there are some very debatable assertions. I was puzzled by the claim that the merger …
