Zovy offers customized solutions to help customers in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry manage all of their data governance needs. Zovy’s experience with the AEC industry gives it a unique perspective of the challenges faced by companies in the industry.
These challenges include:
- The implementation of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and the impact of relational electronic data on the organization
- The introduction of Integrated Product Delivery (IPD) and the changing landscape between partners and customers in a project
- The growing amount of storage needed for customers to retain electronic data for longer periods of time
As firms continue to deal with these challenges, IT departments are facing pressure to efficiently manage data governance needs. In many cases, the amount of data AEC companies are creating in the form of CAD models, email communication, instant messaging, project documentation, scanned information and other data types has increased two to three times in the last five years and is growing at a rate up to 50% or more per year.
Managing rapid data growth and real-time availability of information is critical for companies to truly leverage the power of BIM and IPD. The comprehensive archiving, backup and eDiscovery features of Zovy allow AEC customers to recognize the full potential of both BIM and IPD.
Additionally, changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) have made it clear that the management of electronically stored information (ESI) is essential when working with partners and multiple internal departments on a project. Zovy is built to allow AEC customers to rapidly deploy a solution that enables compliance with all FRCP policies throughout the project management process.
