David Haynes, Director at Ideate Software, joins us on this episode 161 of Art of Construction.
The explosion of Big Data happening in construction right now is unprecedented, tribe. With this comes questions, though. What is all this data being collected for? How can you use data to actually grow your business and influence your decisions and operations RIGHT NOW?
At Ideate Software, David and his team work hard to answer this question by creating products such as Ideate BIMLink, where Autodesk Revit users can pull information from a file into Microsoft Excel and push volumes of precise, consequential BIM data back into their Revit model with speed, ease and accuracy. This process of breaking down the information silos and allowing data to be practically shared and utilized throughout the design and build process is exactly what the AEC industry needs. Otherwise, we're just collecting data to collect data.
Join Devon as he goes on a journey with David to find the key to unlocking the potential big data holds for the AEC industry, recap Ideate's involvement in Data Day at Digital Built Week, and predict what the future might hold for the world of construction and technology.
