Do you have real insight into your data center or HPC operations? If you don’t understand everything going on throughout your entire facility and energy grid, it is very difficult to be truly efficient. How does your power consumption fluctuate? Do you have hot spots? Would you know if your systems were fighting each other or short-cycling? Are you looking across disparate systems to understand your environment? You can’t properly manage power demands, energy consumption, power fluctuations, or operational efficiency without understanding your data but that can be difficult with so much data everywhere. How can you see what is important through multiple systems, multiple screens, and a sea of data?

A recent survey finds that government agencies involved in overseeing the construction of buildings or infrastructure are beginning to come around to Building Information Modeling. The concept of BIM is still new to the public sector, but the survey shows that agencies value the benefits that BIM delivers—greater insight into the cost, schedule and feasibility of projects, reduced document errors, and a consistent management process from start to finish. In this webcast, leading experts in BIM will review the results of the survey in depth, and discuss how BIM will reshape design, engineering and construction projects in the public sector in the years ahead.
