"We were one of the earliest adopters of Textura-CPM, going live with the solution in 2007," said George Heacox, VP of Finance, Donohoe Construction. "By using Textura-CPM, we've standardized the billing process throughout our organization and eliminated clerical errors from the payment application process. CPM has allowed us to provide our subcontractors with more visibility into their compliance and payment status, which has helped our relationships with our subcontractor community. And, we've been able to scale our financial operations as our company has grown."

Among the Top 25 General Contractors in the Washington, D.C. area, according to the Washington Business Journal and on ENR's Top 400 General Contractors list for over 34 years, Donohoe Construction has worked on high-profile, award-winning projects such as the Long Bridge Park and Recreation Centre in Arlington, VA, the Yale West Apartments in Washington, and The George Washington University Ames Hall Renovation & Addition. Donohoe Construction recently on-boarded it's 80th project on Textura-CPM.

Donohoe Construction uses Textura-CPM to automate invoicing, lien waiver collection, electronic payments, document compliance and reporting. CPM electronically integrates all construction payment management process into a powerful, but easy-to-use workflow that allows Donohoe to automate manual processes and eliminate the stacks of paper traditionally involved in the payment process.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
Any startup has to have a clear go –to-market strategy from the beginning. Similarly, any data science project has to have a go to production strategy from its first days, so it could go beyond proof-of-concept. Machine learning and artificial intelligence in production would result in hundreds of training pipelines and machine learning models that are continuously revised by teams of data scientists and seamlessly connected with web applications for tenants and users.

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
