TOO MUCH DATA – What Will We Do With It All?
Many AEC firms load their BIM models with data, but don’t have an effective way to analyze or visualize all the data that a project receives. RTC Events North America 2016 is debuting a day’s worth of discovery and discussion, appropriately named “Data Day”.
The time has arrived for the AECO community to address the data explosion that is happening in the industry. Our clients are buried by all the data, and are looking for firms to provide insightful analysis.
So the question is “Where do we start?”
This RTC inaugural event will not be training. It will be about exploring the questions around data, hear what steps others have taken to start the journey, and participate in what ‘next steps’ the AECO industry should take. Some presentations will be made, but a good portion of the time will be spent in an interactive round-table discussion exploring the key data-direction questions.
This event is targeted at Principals, Decision Makers, CIO, and other Executives who are tasked with moving their firms in a new direction and to set a new vision. You don’t need to be doing deep data analysis and visualization, but you must be convinced that your firm needs to lead the way into the new data world that is coming. You must be willing to share your company’s perspective, concerns and vision regarding Data and the AECO industry.
Data Day will be held on Wednesday July 13, 2016 as a part of the week-long RTC North America. Registration opens on Tuesday 15 March 12 noon MDT.
