IMAGINiT Technologies Releases New Version of IMAGINiT Clarity at Autodesk University 2013

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 has released key new features for IMAGINiT Clarity, IMAGINiT Clarity LT, and IMAGINiT Clarity Workshare.

IMAGINiT Clarity and Clarity LT extend the Autodesk Revit Server platform by improving team collaboration and time savings through security, management and monitoring tools, task automation and project dashboard reporting. Firms not using Autodesk Revit Server can improve their traditional file based work sharing approach, automate time consuming Revit software related tasks, build reports and more with IMAGINiT Clarity Workshare.

“The IMAGINiT Clarity product line is specifically designed to address key challenges BIM teams face and this latest release further extends the functionality in an intuitive user experience,” says Tim Johnson, senior vice president, IMAGINiT Technologies. “Our development team has not only improved enhancements for saving time by automating manual tasks and collaborating more securely with everyone on the BIM team, but we’re also giving more business friendly purchase options by offering a perpetual license model as well as an annual rental option.”

“While we chose to utilize IMAGINiT Clarity Workshare for a specific project, we have found that every project has the potential to benefit from the functions IMAGINiT Clarity offers specifically, the new Web Editing feature that allows our clients to provide comments and feedback that ties directly to Revit,” says Jason Gardner, BIM Manager of Hoefer Wysocki Architects. “IMAGINiT Clarity has been instrumental in not only saving us time and offering our clients more insight into their projects earlier, but it has also enabled me to automate many manual, project-based tasks, allowing me to focus my efforts towards critical company-based initiatives that would otherwise be postponed.”

The latest enhancements to the IMAGINiT Clarity product line continue to help solve the toughest challenges facing BIM teams today. IMAGINiT Clarity products:

  • Increase collaboration between all members of the BIM team regardless of their location or if they are a Revit user. For example, any BIM team member with permissions such as an interior architect, a facilities manager or marketing staff can review data and submit change requests back to the model via an intuitive web interface.
  • Offer greater task automation to ensure both people and technology resources are used most efficiently. Intuitive daily graphical views and weekly scheduling options show what resources are used to generate PDFs, DWG’s, reports and more.
  • Improve master planning by querying room data and datasheets across selected previous projects.

Whether it’s liberating valuable information from the Revit model and allowing it to be shared with the expanded team or finding and solving a model block with a host server remotely using a tablet, the IMAGINiT Clarity family of products saves BIM teams time while making project management easier and more secure.

Exclusive Presentations

To highlight the business benefits of the IMAGINiT Clarity product line, IMAGINiT will be hosting an exclusive presentation at Autodesk University 2013 on Wednesday, December 4 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Hoefer Wysocki Architects will co-present, along with IMAGINiT experts, offering attendees feedback to their toughest questions from both developers and users. Attendance is free, but advanced registration is required.

On Thursday, December 12, IMAGINiT will also be hosting a free 60 minute webcast to highlight the latest features in the IMAGINiT Clarity products. Led by a member of the team who developed the software suite, the webcast will take place at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Eastern. Attendance is free, but advanced registration is required.

IMAGINiT Technologies has a long history of creating productivity enhancing software products that extend the value of Autodesk products, such as IMAGINiT Utilities for Revit, IMAGINiT Utilities for Civil 3D and IMAGINiT Utilities for Vault Server, Scan to BIM, and IMAGINiT Clarity and Clarity Workshare. With experts who are focused on design technology automation and customization, IMAGINiT is both an Autodesk Authorized Developer and a member of the Autodesk Developer Network.

Availability and Pricing

All three IMAGINiT Clarity products are available through a perpetual license, but now a new annual rental plan is also available to meet the needs of those working on a project by project basis. IMAGINiT Clarity Workshare offers an unlimited number of users and projects and also includes basic installation and training. Maintenance and subscription fees apply.

For organizations interested in a solution specifically for Revit Server, IMAGINiT Clarity and IMAGINiT Clarity 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. For more information, visit: imaginit.com/clarity.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
Web conferencing in a public cloud has the same risks as any other cloud service. If you have ever had concerns over the types of data being shared in your employees’ web conferences, such as IP, financials or customer data, then it’s time to look at web conferencing in a private cloud. In her session at 14th Cloud Expo, Courtney Behrens, Senior Marketing Manager at Brother International, will discuss how issues that had previously been out of your control, like performance, advanced administration and compliance, can now be put back behind your firewall.
Next-Gen Cloud. Whatever you call it, there’s a higher calling for cloud computing that requires providers to change their spots and move from a commodity mindset to a premium one. Businesses can no longer maintain the status quo that today’s service providers offer. Yes, the continuity, speed, mobility, data access and connectivity are staples of the cloud and always will be. But cloud providers that plan to not only exist tomorrow – but to lead – know that security must be the top priority for the cloud and are delivering it now. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Kurt Hagerman, Chief Information Security Officer at FireHost, will detail why and how you can have both infrastructure performance and enterprise-grade security – and what tomorrow's cloud provider will look like.
The social media expansion has shown just how people are eager to share their experiences with the rest of the world. Cloud technology is the perfect platform to satisfy this need given its great flexibility and readiness. At Cynny, we aim to revolutionize how people share and organize their digital life through a brand new cloud service, starting from infrastructure to the users’ interface. A revolution that began from inventing and designing our very own infrastructure: we have created the first server network powered solely by ARM CPU. The microservers have “organism-like” features, differentiating them from any of the current technologies. Benefits include low consumption of energy, making Cynny the ecologically friendly alternative for storage as well as cheaper infrastructure, lower running costs, etc.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.
