BIM, SaaS and mobile driving Newforma developments

Once scathing of the attractions of Software-as-a-Service, Newforma is now actively embracing the cloud, SaaS, BIM and mobile, and eyeing potential social media ideas for future product development. Last week I learned more about Newforma, developer of the enterprise-based Newforma Project Center application and now a recent entrant to the Software-as-a-Service collaboration space with its …

If you really, really don’t want SaaS …

While I am a champion of Software-as-a-Service and I spend a lot of my time looking at SaaS-based solutions for construction collaboration, I appreciate there will always be people for whom keeping things within the company IT infrastructure, or paying once up-front rather than by pay-as-you-go subscription, is preferable. For such people in the architecture, …

HP ePrint & Share – a follow-up

Further to yesterday’s post about HP ePrint & Share, I have now received a response from product manager Iolanda Montserrat (right), so I can shed a little more light on this cloud service’s capabilities. Email notifications – As regular readers will know, I like services which can be managed online without (m)any emails – perhaps …

Union Square acquires Archetype

I recently read about a series of Autumn Cloud Computing events that Nottingham-based Union Square Software is organising. The series starts at the RIBA in London on 13 October with a seminar entitled Maximising Profit – Project Accounting For Professionals, Union Square having added project accounting to its Workspace product earlier this year (post). The …

Partly through my involvement with Be2camp and partly because of my interests in online collaborative spaces, I was contacted by US-based architect Ryan Shultz of Studio Wikitecture to have a look at a very early, ‘alpha stage’ website concept, OpeningDesign.com. As Ryan candidly admits, this application is still experimental, and is currently a combination of …

Union Square adds project accounting option to Workspace

Union Square Software and its Workspace product haven’t featured very often in this blog, partly because my main focus is on Software-as-a-Service applications for the construction sector, and Workspace tends to be hosted in its customers’ premises, with extranet-type functionality available as an option alongside its core intranet and email management capabilities. However, it’s worth …

Glasscubes updates interface

I wrote about Glasscubes last October (post), and have just received an email from Rob Hallums telling me about a new, more intuitive user interface to the application (read his blog post). There are changes to the navigation to create a Dashboard view (right) and a files repository, and the ‘Cubes’ have been renamed Workspaces …
