Sweden: BIMobject has collaborated with IBM to develop a cloud solution for manufacturers' product information. The collaboration will support both product and building lifecycles. IBM SoftLayer and Bluemix development tools will help BIMobject create new opportunities for scaling the bimobject.com platform to fit new markets, thus enabling a more frictionless integration of future technology. The IBM Bluemix tools, IBM's Watson and other products from the IBM analytics portfolio will be used for business and predictive analytics in the BIM process.
For IBM, the collaboration will provide a valuable extension of the IBM Smart EC&O (Engineering Construction & Operations) solution. Smart EC&O enables clients to manage BIM data across asset lifecycles and thereby utilizing optimization and predictive capabilities to reduce waste, risks and costs.
