Rchitects, Inc. Gains Ability to Take on More Projects

Firm Led by Jose Pedro "Bong" Recio Implements Newforma Software for Project Information Management to Increase Efficiency, Drive Revenue and Minimize Risk

MAKATI, PHILIPPINES and MANCHESTER, NH -- (Marketwired) -- 03/23/14 -- Newforma, a project information management (PIM) software company integrating people, projects and processes to transform building and infrastructure project delivery, is pleased to announce that Rchitects, Inc., has implemented Newforma software. The firm, founded by Jose Pedro "Bong" Recio and respected for its work in high-rise and mixed-use building design, says Newforma software has improved overall efficiency, increased revenue and minimized risk, which the firm's production head says increases the company's ability to do more work.

Initially, the firm's leaders were looking for a software solution to help with document management and project team collaboration. When they discovered Newforma's capabilities in these key areas, as well as a variety of other work processes specific to architects, they knew they'd found the right solution for their firm.

Rchitects, Inc.'s Frederick Clemente, production team head, explains, "It's clear that whoever designed Newforma understands the way architects work. Its ease of use really separated Newforma from other solutions we considered. We set out to find a solution that would help us track versions of drawings and find email and documents in order to improve our response time to clients and fellow project team members. Newforma has helped us achieve this and so much more. With improved overall efficiency, not only have we improved our processes and enhanced our client service, we have improved productivity to be able to take on more projects that bring in additional revenue without sacrificing our commitment to high quality design."

Using Newforma software, Rchitects has replaced cumbersome, less secure systems for sharing information such as FTP and Dropbox, neither of which provided the ability to track if recipients received or downloaded the files. Newforma allows project team members to share information with no file size limitations and a verifiable audit trail that is captured automatically.

Rchitects has granted its clients access to key project information via Newforma Project Center's web access function, giving clients transparency and control that simply was not possible before.

Newforma software is not limited to enterprise and web applications. Newforma mobile apps enable Rchitects personnel to access project information on the go. For example, they have stopped printing drawings to take on site to guide the punch list process. Instead, they consult the Newforma Plans app for the latest drawings and specifications, and generate punch list items from the app.

"The construction market in the Philippines is expected to grow substantially in 2014," said Newforma Chief Executive Officer Ian Howell. "This creates a tremendous opportunity for firms based in the region, like Rchitects, Inc., to take on more projects with complete confidence in their ability to manage the extra fee generating work successfully. It's not just the ability to do more faster; it's the ability to leverage the unique capabilities of Newforma to make transparency and team-wide accountability the norm that helps our customers like Rchitects achieve greater profitability."

Internet of @ThingsExpo, taking place June 6-8, 2017 at the Javits Center in New York City, New York, is co-located with the 20th International Cloud Expo and will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. @ThingsExpo New York Call for Papers is now open.
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...
In his General Session at DevOps Summit, Asaf Yigal, Co-Founder & VP of Product at Logz.io, will explore the value of Kibana 4 for log analysis and will give a real live, hands-on tutorial on how to set up Kibana 4 and get the most out of Apache log files. He will examine three use cases: IT operations, business intelligence, and security and compliance. This is a hands-on session that will require participants to bring their own laptops, and we will provide the rest.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Updating DevOps to the latest production data slows down your development cycle. Probably it is due to slow, inefficient conventional storage and associated copy data management practices. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in Product and Solution at Tintri, will talk about DevOps and cloud-focused storage to update hundreds of child VMs (different flavors) with updates from a master VM in minutes, saving hours or even days in each development cycle. He will also...
In a recent research, analyst firm IDC found that the average cost of a critical application failure is $500,000 to $1 million per hour and the average total cost of unplanned application downtime is $1.25 billion to $2.5 billion per year for Fortune 1000 companies. In addition to the findings on the cost of the downtime, the research also highlighted best practices for development, testing, application support, infrastructure, and operations teams.
