    For the last two years during the pandemic, Jacobs’ digital delivery team in Australia has been aware of the increasing challenges posed by remote project collaboration and stakeholder engagement. We’ve developed a platform named SIFT that is built on top of Autodesk Forge, Microsoft Power Platform, and Microsoft Azure services to help accelerate our internal digital transformation. SIFT democratizes building information modeling (BIM) data by helping design teams better consume and understand design information from intelligent models, bridging the gap between specialized BIM software and end users, and making information from Autodesk Construction Cloud easily accessible through enterprise-level IT infrastructure like Microsoft 365. When used together with Microsoft Power Platform, SIFT helps us effectively remove most coding requirements and lower the threshold for adoption and operation of BIM technologies, making BIM data more accessible and actionable.
