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.

@CloudExpo Stories
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Organizations from small to large are increasingly adopting cloud solutions to deliver essential business services at a much lower cost. According to cyber security experts, the frequency and severity of cyber-attacks are on the rise, causing alarm to businesses and customers across a variety of industries. To defend against exploits like these, a company must adopt a comprehensive security defense strategy that is designed for their business. In 2015, organizations such as United Airlines, Sony...
Amazon and Google have built software-defined data centers (SDDCs) that deliver massively scalable services with great efficiency. Yet, building SDDCs has proven to be a near impossibility for ‘normal’ companies without hyper-scale resources. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, David Cauthron, founder and chief executive officer of Nimboxx, will discuss the evolution of virtualization (hardware, application, memory, storage) and how commodity / open source hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) so...
In their Live Hack” presentation at 17th Cloud Expo, Stephen Coty and Paul Fletcher, Chief Security Evangelists at Alert Logic, will provide the audience with a chance to see a live demonstration of the common tools cyber attackers use to attack cloud and traditional IT systems. This “Live Hack” uses open source attack tools that are free and available for download by anybody. Attendees will learn where to find and how to operate these tools for the purpose of testing their own IT infrastructu...
The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
IBM’s Blue Box Cloud, powered by OpenStack, is now available in any of IBM’s globally integrated cloud data centers running SoftLayer infrastructure.

With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and a...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of I...

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps.
