Connecting the Cloud with Process Over Platform for the AEC Industries

Apr 16, 2019

More than any industry, the AEC (Architecture, Engineering & Construction) has always struggled with content chaos. Members of an AEC project have particular needs based on their particular skills that drive what platforms and applications to help them best do their job.

The specific and unique challenges on the content and information that needs to be managed on a project, has traditionally meant the advantages of the cloud, have been out of reach for the AEC. However, whether on-premise or in the cloud, the daunting challenge of content chaos has been a perennial burden for a team comprised of a wide range of skills. That challenge has been to easily collaborate and drive a consistent process to drive efficiency, profitability and success on a project.

Connecting the Cloud for the AEC

But with platforms such as SharePoint Office 365 & OneDrive now supporting CAD drawings and DWG files, the power of Autodesk BIM 360 and systems like accounting and CRM all moving to the cloud; there are real choices for the AEC to take advantage of the incredible value of the digital transformation of the enterprise the cloud represents

But your project isn’t a platform.

A project is collaboration between people with specific roles and skills and who work with the tools that are best for them to do their job. Its success is measured by working within a budget, delivered on time with quality. To do that everyone needs to be on the same page and sync.

To take advantage of the digital transformation of cloud platforms and services, you need to rethink and transform the idea of a project itself.

Systems need to be connected, not just through traditional technology connections like application interfaces and web services. The only meaningful connection that will really drive value and not increase overhead is a way to apply process, always in the context of a project.

ProjectReady understands this challenge, delivering a unique solution to the market place which focuses on high value and return on investment for the enterprise, driving process over platform and getting more value from what you already own.
