Rand Worldwide (OTCBB: RWWI), a global leader in providing technology solutions to organizations with engineering design and information technology requirements, today announced that its IMAGINiT Technologies division released the 2015 versions of the IMAGINiT Clarity suite of products. The intuitive user interface, new task automation options, and integration with Autodesk products such as Autodesk BIM 360 Glue make the latest release of IMAGINiT Clarity a must for firms with project collaboration needs.
“We’re committed to ensuring that the IMAGINiT Clarity product line meets the evolving design needs of architects, engineers and designers, whether they’re using Revit Server or just Revit,” says Tim Johnson, senior vice president at IMAGINiT Technologies. “The new productivity and time saving enhancements in our 2015 releases allow BIM teams to reduce the amount of time spent on manual tasks, such as model exchange and clean-up, and focus on higher level tasks that add tangible value to projects. As the new IMAGINiT Clarity line-up supports Autodesk Revit and Revit Server 2015, 2014 and 2013 versions, many firms can now reap significant benefits.”
Designed to leverage the information contained in Revit models, IMAGINiT Clarity for Revit provides collaborative project management tools and automation of manual tasks. Firms that require collaboration with external team members have the option to use IMAGINiT Clarity Connect or Clarity Connect LT for Revit Server, which add secure project sharing features on top of IMAGINiT Clarity functionality. The 2015 product line includes a redesigned user interface and new and enhanced features improve efficiency and increase productivity, ultimately advancing design quality.
Occasional Model Exchanges
IMAGINiT Clarity for Revit helps BIM Coordinators save precious time throughout the life of a project. Instead of constantly manually publishing models via FTP, email or other sharing mechanisms, a variety of new tools help to automatically publish models to a designated FTP site or network location and retrieve them. Automating this process allows team members to focus on higher value tasks and without fundamentally changing the way teams exchange model information.
Intuitive User Interface
Customer feedback has also been the impetus for a new intuitive user interface that shows more data at a glance and provides quick access to the tools required to perform complex functions. Designed with the mobile user in mind, Clarity is available for desktop use as well as off-site with a laptop or tablet. With new remote functionality and increased ability for users to access information in fewer clicks, Clarity’s new user interface increases efficiency both on-site and in the office.
Integration with Autodesk BIM 360 Glue
To enhance the value of Autodesk BIM 360’s Glue data, IMAGINiT Clarity now offers the ability to automate the publishing of Revit data to Glue and for users to view Glue data inside the Clarity environment. By linking Clarity to Glue, a BIM coordinator transforms a manual process that takes multiple steps into a task that will publish Revit models to Glue when needed. The ability to use both Clarity and Glue helps provide firms a more integrated project collaboration system, reducing errors and increasing profitability.
Availability & Pricing
All three IMAGINiT Clarity products are available with perpetual licensing. Each product is also available on a subscription basis for those who want to use the tools for a specific project.
IMAGINiT Clarity offers an unlimited number of users and projects and also includes basic installation and training. Maintenance fees apply. For organizations that need to collaborate with internal and external teams, IMAGINiT Clarity Connect and IMAGINiT Clarity Connect LT can be packaged with Autodesk Revit Server or can be integrated into an existing installation. Setup and training is included and managed by IMAGINiT’s trusted team of implementation and training experts. Pricing is dependent on number of locations, hosts, accelerators and task servers. Maintenance and subscription fees apply.
See the latest Clarity release in action during webcasts being held on June 4, 2014 at 10:00 AM or 2:00 PM (US/CAN Eastern Time). During these one-hour live presentations, Beau Turner will be on hand to demonstrate and answer questions about IMAGINiT Clarity and IMAGINiT Clarity Connect. Registration available at www.imaginit.com/events.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...
