New Bentley ProjectWise-to-Newforma Project Center Integration Validated by RS&H

Leading Design and Consulting Firm Streamlines Workflows Using Bentley Collaboration Software and Newforma Project Information Management Software

MANCHESTER, NH -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/14 -- Newforma, a project information management (PIM) software company integrating people, projects and processes to transform building and infrastructure project delivery, today announced customer validation of the added value created by integration with Bentley collaboration software for distributed project design and construction teams. Specifically, Newforma® Project Center functions such as search, markup, and email management are being applied to documents stored within Bentley® ProjectWise® software. Importantly, all project documents, wherever they reside on the company's network, including those saved in ProjectWise, may be searched and accessed via a single window, the Newforma Project Files activity center.

Behind the scenes, Newforma servers index the contents of the ProjectWise system, adding its files to Newforma Search results. As a result, with one sortable, filterable search, Newforma users can see all files that contain their search terms, whether those files reside in ProjectWise, in email or email attachments, or in other files or folders saved anywhere on the company's network of servers, including servers in different offices.

RS&H Technical Services Manager David Brazet, P.E., LEED AP, M.C.S.E., after using the Newforma Project Center-ProjectWise integration on live projects, reports that it further streamlines workflows for the architecture, engineering and consulting firm. "Our ProjectWise power users are happy that the Newforma integration makes it easier to file email with other ProjectWise-managed documents," Brazet said. "And our Newforma users are happy that we've expanded the scope of project documents that we can access and manage using Newforma Project Center. The Newforma-ProjectWise integration combines the best of both worlds. For example, users do not have to leave the Newforma interface to check files into and out of ProjectWise. This integration provides users with the convenience of not having to switch back and forth between software products. For more advanced ProjectWise functionality, users can still use the ProjectWise interface."

Newforma Co-founder and Executive Vice President of Development David Plunkett said the Newforma Project Center-ProjectWise integration works to the benefit of joint customers. "Bentley ProjectWise solves the multi-office information sharing problem and brings rigor and discipline to work processes that can spin out of control otherwise," Plunkett said. "Newforma Project Center is perhaps most notable for removing impediments to productivity. When you combine the two, you get the risk mitigation and consistent workflows of ProjectWise with the friction-reducing efficiencies of Newforma Project Center."

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities."

Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.
