re: Cloud Collaboration Tools: Big Hopes, Big Needs
A particularly insightful article which captures both the challenges and the opportunities of cloud collaboration. In the construction and engineering industries that Aconex serves, technology adoption for collaborative project management tools tends to be driven by users rather than IT leaders G㢠with the former receiving the full support of the latter. One example is mobility and the BYOD movement now pervading construction sites in various regions of the world. Another is Building Information Modeling (BIM), which expands big data from the design phase to the build phase. This user-driven model is entirely consistent with multiparty collaboration for managing processes, information and people on complex projects. It also leverages the economic and practical advantages of SaaS. A secure, neutral platform G㢠specialized for the vertical markets that it serves G㢠provides the Gă cloud collaboration ecosystemGăÍ required to optimize efficiency, productivity and profitability in delivering high-quality projects.
