Notes on attending a Microsoft-hosted construction ICT event

COMIT logo

“Ooh, a free conference on construction ICT! And it’s at Microsoft’s London office!” – probably the reaction of more than a few people when emails dropped into their inboxes earlier this year. I attended last year’s event, having heard of the event through friends at COMIT (Construction Opportunities for Mobile IT), so I was clearly …

Asite’s Appbuilder and Platform-as-a-Service

UK-based construction collaboration software developer Asite is looking to emulate Salesforce‘s Force.com Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering by creating a platform to host construction-related applications built using its Appbuilder development framework. This is the latest development in the competitive world of construction collaboration technology, but is likely to be quickly emulated by Asite’s key rivals. Background Ten …

Panama landmark project for Aconex

Yesterday I talked to Aconex‘s Dexter Bachelder (VP Americas) and Frank Carron (VP marketing) about a major deal that, for me, is a landmark in the adoption of web-based construction collaboration technologies. Australia-based vendor Aconex announced yesterday (see news release) that it had been selected to provide collaboration support services to the US$3.2 billion Panama …

Corecon releases V7

I last wrote about California, US-based SaaS construction software vendor Corecon Technologies almost two years ago (post). In 2008, Corecon’s, er… core business management capabilities were being expanded to include online file storage and collaboration capabilities (though not document markup/red-line or commenting capabilities). At the time, Corecon president Norman Wendl was hoping to launch v7 …

Show us the numbers, Cadac

I have railed before (Give us the figures, Cadweb!) about construction collaboration technology vendors trumpeting how much their business has grown without actually giving us any figures to substantiate their hype.

Putting the social into AEC development

I have been following posts on a blog hosted by PTC, a vendor of product development technology solutions to ‘discrete manufacturers’. Its product lifecycle management (PLM) applications are widely used in the industrial, high-tech, aerospace and defence, automotive, consumer and medical device sectors. OK, not my usual industry interests, but useful nonetheless as the blog …
