Advances in technology has transformed the AEC Industry. For a sector which is highly project based there is a requirement for collaboration between various people on a number of systems usually within many locations. This, alongside strong data sharing and processing requirements creates many challenges.
Adoption of the Cloud has consistently met these challenges head on, instantly dismissing the constant need for storage and space whilst simultaneously making valuable data available to access anywhere, any time. The cloud is certainly paramount to business agility and makes a winning contribution in shaping the digital age. For businesses who require an instant solution to their daily needs AEC Cloud computing is a solution, in fact it has now become such an integral part of standard business processes that 65% of existing Rapport3 users are now on the Cloud. This is even more relevant when we determine that 100% of new Rapport3 clients for the last 3 years have been Cloud-based, resulting in these practices working within a more collaborative, adaptive and virtual environment.
Here at Cubic Interactive, we offer a complete Cloud-based solution to our clients which can be provided on a subscription basis, meaning there are no hidden charges. Monthly maintenance based customers can also take advantage with a small annual charge per user. The move to the Cloud has similar time-scales to that of a server move minimising any risk of disruption.
Gartner is predicting that in 2016 over one third of all digital data will be stored in the Cloud and it’s estimated that by the end of the year, 90% of UK businesses will be using at least one Cloud service. Now is as good time as ever to start the new year by jumping on the Cloud bandwagon and reaping all the benefits it has to offer.
