AGC One-day Tech Summit 2017: REcAp

2017 One Day Tech SummitFor anyone not in the know on this, AGC put together a side “one-day” conference for the techies. AEC Cloud was a proud sponsor of this event.

From what I understand it was a first attempt at putting this together, and I have to say it was a complete success!!

The panel of speakers were boots on the ground personnel with real world experience in helping get their respective construction company into the 21st century technology wise. Really interesting to hear the stories, the challenges and the successes these folks had to share.

Another aspect of the meeting was the way they brought the audience in on the conversations. It ended up being a really great experience learning about novel approaches to the tech issues we all face everyday. Discussions ran the gamit from software integration and data sharing, to drones and BIM, to introducing new software and technologies, how to handle the introduction of personal devices into the office environment, among other things. If you click the logo above, you can go to the meeting website and view the details.

Extremely informative. The speakers were great at keeping the conversation moving and engaging. Again, I can’t say enough about how much value our team took away from this. A definite win!

It was an honor to be a sponsor of this incredible event!

 

 

 

Thanks again for everyone that came and participated. It was great to see old friends and meet new ones.

Until next year!

2017 AGC Convention Las Vegas: Just WOW!

98th Annual AGC ConventionWhat an amazing experience! This year’s conference went above and beyond any expectations we had here at AEC Cloud.

It was an honor to be a sponsor of this incredible event!

The sessions were on point and extremely informative. The people we met were energized and excited for the upcoming year.

It’s an exciting time to be in the Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) Industry. So much new technology is becoming available to help increase productivity and give team members an in-depth view of the project at hand. Drones, laser measuring devices, BIM modeling, virtual reality & 3D, and integration of software data across applications. All of this adds up to a revolution in construction and how the industry approaches and executes a project.

An interesting angle that was present at the conference this year was the “human element”. How are the building and projects affecting the communities and people that are using them. It’s a factor that I never thought about, but is a critical element in the project development process. Homes, hospitals, schools. These buildings are used by people in communities everyday. The design and construction affects these communities at many levels, hopefully in a positive way. The work that we are doing today, has a real impact on this and future generations.

If you missed the event, or just want to view the agenda and speakers, go to the AGC Convention website here.

Thanks again for everyone that came and participated. It was great to see old friends and meet new ones.

Until next year!

AEC Cloud EVENT: How to Increase Your Construction IT ROI :: RECAP :: THANK YOU!!!!

Just WOW!

Our first event was more than any of us here expected.
Great speakers, great space and great audience!!

Christine Burger, President of Burger Consulting Group, opened the session in our space at Stone Brewery in San Diego, CA.

If you have never heard him speak, the guy is literally full of incredible knowledge, experience and insight into technology today in the work space, and in particular with the AEC industry.

Next up was Jeremy Sibert, CIO at Hensel Phelps. Jeremy has literally transformed Hensel Phelps’ IT department, processes and corporate thinking when it comes to IT and the ever changing landscape of adopting technology in the work place. Incredible hands on experience over the past 8 years working there, which he freely shared with the audience. A truly incredible opportunity for us all.

Steve Maddox of Viewpoint brought his expertise and knowledge of technology in the AEC space and how his clients were utilizing different software suites to maximize their ROI in the IT department.

The event then went into a round table discussion between the three along with our CEO here at AEC Cloud, Wes Smith joining in with insights into current challenges and future opportunities in the AEC IT space.

Just an incredible experience to listen to these speakers, and the audience was blown away. Here are a couple of the comments from the post event survey:
