Busting Myths and Overcoming Fears of Moving AEC Files to the Cloud

Presented by

Gregory Fait, Director, Enterprise Infrastructure @ Perkins+Will & Jason Patterson, AEC Technical Account Manager @ Nasuni

About this talk

According to a survey conducted by AEC investment firm FMI, over 90% of projects are overbudget or delayed. In response, AEC companies are looking to cloud technology to improve workflow efficiencies and streamline their processes. Unfortunately, moving mission-critical CAD and 3D models, and other engineering and project files to the cloud has lagged behind other IT initiatives. In this webinar we’ll debunk some of the myths (AKA concerns) people have had about moving to a cloud-based file infrastructure. We talk with 29-year IT veteran from Perkins & Will to learn how he overcame similar corporate objections and made the transition to a modern file services platform built for the cloud. Join Jason Patterson of Nasuni, who has 10+ years of AEC IT experience, along with Greg Fait, Director of IT Infrastructure from Perkins & Will will discuss the realities of moving AEC files to the cloud. You will walk away with and understanding of: · The reality to myths surrounding using the cloud to store, access, and manage AEC files · What’s involved with transitioning AEC business assets to a file services platform built for the cloud · How Perkins & Will overcame the inertia of continuing to use traditional file servers and NAS hardware
