Cloud Interoperability, Open Standards & Integration for the AEC Industry

So you want to work toward more interoperable, integrated, user friendly solutions? That’s a mouthful so let’s break this down a bit. When we talk interoperability, we are looking at getting several different information silos to “talk” to each other in a seamless manner. Common AEC Industry examples might be Accounting or BIM software talking to Project Management software. Another common example is getting Project Management information out to the field and various mobile devices. The reason we want to do this is to reduce double entry and deliver more real time information, thus creating more high value time for users to focus on the business of building.

This article is focused on interoperability and open standards. For more information on the process of integration and the cloud based technology utilized, see previous articles on Integration [Read More] and Web Services [Read More].
