Joint Microsoft/Talon offering brings datacenter availability and ease of maintenance to Capita P&I’s distributed enterprise, enabling BIM 2.0 compliance.
Mount Laurel, NJ –June 9, 2015 - Talon, the leading provider of Microsoft™ File Aware application performance, intelligent file caching solutions for distributed enterprise infrastructure, today announced that Capita Property and Infrastructure (P&I) the UK’s leading provider of business process management and integrated professional support service solutions, has partnered with Talon and Microsoft to optimize its onsite file sharing and data storage needs.
Capita P&I needed to centralize its data for ease of access and collaboration for files, including typical Microsoft Office documents, PDFs, designer files and large project files, including Autodesk AutoCAD, Revit, Bentley Microstation, and other engineering applications. Bringing this data together enabled Capita P&I’s distributed user workforce to access central files and collaborate on projects from the company’s various branch offices. The move was also mandated by the UK government, which, beginning in 2016, requires that all parties involved in the execution of construction projects for the UK government must, at minimum, support a BIM Level 2 process. Talon’s approach allowed Capita P&I to enable the processes for BIM 2.0 compliance, eventually helping to lower costs for the construction and management of buildings.
