Replay Webinar About our Speaker

Do any of the following statements sound a little too familiar?
  • The clutter of cloud solutions and messages makes it difficult to develop a clear direction.
  • Traditional software assessment frameworks aren’t adequate to evaluate cloud solutions.
  • Cloud services require new and different skill sets compared to client/server solutions.
  • Security, data ownership, and liability are challenges when access is widespread.
  • Mapping data for cloud service integrations is an exercise in frustration.
  • Integrating cloud services with existing solutions is a daunting task.
  • It’s not always clear where the value proposition for the cloud is—and where it isn’t.
  • The cloud is completely transforming interoperability strategies—how to you adapt?
  • Development is moving far ahead of standards—what does this mean to early adopters?

Nearly every major solution provider serving the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) and Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) market has introduced cloud-based products and services. In many ways, AEC and EPC are ideal targets for cloud delivered software solutions, but key questions remain, e.g., data ownership, security, liability, and the ability to technically integrate multiple cloud solutions. This webinar is targeted at addressing these questions. Attendees will leave the webinar with a framework for assessing cloud solution providers and key information needed to develop a coherent and sustainable cloud strategy.

What will I learn by attending this webinar?

  • You will learn about the fundamentals of cloud services.
  • You will understand more about the core advantages of cloud services in the AEC/EPC industry.
  • You will be able to compare private, hybrid, and public clouds.
  • You will gain insight into the security implications of the cloud and how to avoid pitfalls.
  • You will gain an awareness of the integration and interoperability—issues to consider for new and existing solutions.
  • You will be in a position to address the issues of data ownership and liability.
  • You will learn how to develop a coherent roadmap in the face of rapid development.
  • You will be able to construct a rational business case for cloud (and maintaining it).
  • You will hear CIMdata’s view of the future of cloud services.
