Moving Architecture, Engineering & Construction Files to the Cloud

March 09, 2020 | Jason Patterson Moving Architecture, Engineering & Construction Files to the Cloud

Leading engineering and construction firms of all sizes are struggling with the on-premises file infrastructure that served them well since the mid 2000’s. Now, hitting scalability, cost, and agility issues, it’s time to look the cloud for a new solution.  Moving to a cloud model for storing, sharing, and managing AEC files results in enormous cost savings and workflow efficiencies.

In this 7-minute video, I’ll explain why every AEC firm needs to be looking at a modern cloud solution to support architects, engineers, and BIM managers. You will walk away knowing:

  • What traditional file infrastructure is really costing your firm (hint: it’s not from file servers)
  • How you can centrally store and access all files in the cloud from every office location, even large CAD and 3D files
  • How a cloud-based file infrastructure will never let you run out of drive space or have to perform backups ever again
