Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC)
Architecture, engineering and construction enterprises face some of the most demanding file distribution and collaboration challenges of any sector. These organizations work with massive file sets, and the information needs to be available to employees, contractors, branch offices and remote workers based around the world. Any delays or complications in these file sharing efforts will undermine productivity and cause employee frustration—both of which will hurt AEC firms' ability to compete in an increasingly complex global economy.
Talon FAST™ is built to address precisely these issues. With FAST™, AEC firms can ensure that files— including the massive data sets needed by the AEC sector—are readily available to all relevant personnel, without sacrificing security or data accuracy. The FAST™ Fabric ensures local and remote offices can communicate effectively, without sacrificing time on conflict resolution, especially with the new BIM mandates.
With the upcoming BIM Level 2 mandate companies are under increasing pressure to reduce discrepencies in drawings and reports. Now that all central government construction projects in the U.K. will require AEC firms to feature managed 3-D environments and attached data in their proposals, it's become more important than ever for these firms to solve collaboration and file-sharing issues. It certainly doesn't help that the applications these firms employ demand huge amounts of bandwidth and hardware.
Between AutoCAD, Autodesk Revit, and Bentley, AEC firms have to balance BIM regulations and global collaboration, without any errors. That's a tough challenge, even for the most advanced firms. Revit is particularly important thanks to its File-Aware capabilities, as these make it possible for individuals based around the world to contribute to a single BIM project, while providing the enterprise with oversight of these contributions and alterations. Unfortunately that feature is unique to Revit, and doesn't extend to AutoCAD and Bentley. For firms with such a pressing need for global file-sharing and collaboration, there aren't many options.
That's why we've created Talon FAST™. FAST™ features Intelligent File Caching, which minimizes latency and maintains a high level of data availability, all while ensuring files are synced up automatically. Every worker can access the necessary application files, confident that all of the information contained therein is accurate and up to date. For AEC firms, this isn't just a solution to a problem, it's an innovation that drives their firm into the future.
The Revit Challenge: Autodesk Revit offers tremendous value for AEC firms, but only when enterprises can avoid performance issues. Where WAN optimization, data replication, and virtual desktop infrastructure have all come up short, Talon FAST™ succeeds. Click here to learn more.
