Building Information Modeling (BIM) delivers value by providing an underpinning for the creation, aggregation, and exchange of models and corresponding intelligent structured data. The availability of powerful solutions in the BIM standard, both on-premise and in the cloud, creates a challenge and, hence, opportunity to implement a scalable integration architecture in the enterprise. While BIM Tools has largely focused on design and construction phases of assets, it also has important applications across entire lifecycles of assets, and is therefore a key enabler of improving asset management. This class will attempt to showcase technology best practices in TOGAF Enterprise architecture to help customers realize the vision of the business stakeholders to connect BIM data with other asset information and also make it available to the entire enterprise and beyond, including their suppliers and end customers. This session features AutoCAD Electrical and BIM 360 Field. AIA Approved
