Asite Prepares To Launch 'Game-Changing' Adoddle 17

Tuesday 18 March, 2014
Construction collaboration and technology developer Asite will change the way those working in the health sector communicate from March 17th with the launch of Adoddle 17 - the latest upgrade to its award-winning collaborative cloud-based platform.

Adoddle 17 is set to be officially unveiled at the 'Adoddle Hooley Celebration' at Asite's Annual User Group event in Shoreditch Town Hall, London. The result of over £20 million of investment, Version 17 is a cloud-based collaboration platform that allows users to create, store and share knowledge in a secure environment.

Research has shown that traditional methods of information management such as filing cabinets will cause businesses to lose one document in 20, before spending an average £70 to retrieve it and £150 to recreate it. And as workers spend almost five times as long looking for information as they do reading it, the cloud-based platform not only improves efficiency, but accuracy and productivity too.

Integrated at major projects worldwide including Heathrow Terminal 5 and Dubai International Airport, it has helped to deliver time and cost savings of up to 70% through efficient project management.

So what is Adoddle 17 and how does it work? Adoddle is a mature and full-featured content management system used by major clients and projects such as Crossrail, Environment Agency and Balfour Beatty.

The new launch offers improved mobile support, enhanced whole life management and superior user experience. Its features include:-

Enables automation of workflows throughout a building's lifecycle - from concept to completion and management of the asset.

Integrates information into one seamless process in the cloud.

Hosts all project information and details in a central, secure repository.

Includes planned preventative maintenance and asset registers through facilities management tool, Adoddle FM.

Promotes collaboration at every point of the supply chain from the client to the suppliers, main contractors, sub contractors, facilities managers and more.

Catering for everything from pre-contract product sourcing and procurement to document collaboration and project management - it makes life easier and more efficient for all project personnel. The system's cBIM (Collaborative BIM) platform also helps the user to connect commercial information with design detail, enhancing their BIM coordination processes.

As users work in the context of the overall model, Adoddle reduces errors from designing in isolation. By connecting and organising multiple teams, it also delivers secure instant access to information from any location, and helps to maintain a clear audit trail through version control and updates to the model.

Described as a 'game-changer' by Chief Operating Officer Nathan Doughty, Adoddle 17 will be augmented by Apple iOS and Windows 8 apps with Android versions to be added after the launch. With HTML5-supported technology and better offline capabilities, it also provides improved access to Asite's full service offering to deliver greater integration.

Asite's COO Nathan Doughty explains, "Our customers deserve the simplicity of the web and mobile apps they use at home in the tools they use at work. Adoddle 17 is revolutionary simplicity. Corporate collaboration in the cloud with government grade security - made easy."

Encouraging users to upload, share, collaborate and action - Adoddle 17 enables construction professionals from all over the world to deliver the truly joined-up thinking which will set them apart from the competition in a highly competitive industry.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discusse...
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Peter McCallum, Vice President of Datacenter Solutions at FalconStor, discussed using predictive analytics to mon...
What does it look like when you have access to cloud infrastructure and platform under the same roof? Let’s talk about the different layers of Technology as a Service: who cares, what runs where, and how does it all fit together. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Lead Technology Evangelist at SoftLayer, an IBM company, spoke about the picture being painted by IBM Cloud and how the tools being crafted can help fill the gaps in your IT infrastructure.
Most organizations prioritize data security only after their data has already been compromised. Proactive prevention is important, but how can you accomplish that on a small budget? Learn how the cloud, combined with a defense and in-depth approach, creates efficiencies by transferring and assigning risk. Security requires a multi-defense approach, and an in-house team may only be able to cherry pick from the essential components. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Vlad Friedman, CEO/Founder o...

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
