Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) VirtualizeIT

In today’s economy, information managers in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) firms are looking at ways to get more hardware for their money, from desktops to servers, and deciding what can wait. Firms are considering holding off on most major upgrades and looking for solutions with low capital investment, low recurring costs, and high flexibility.

IT Challenges

  • IT Budgets are focused on items with a less-than-18-month return on investment (ROI)
  • High-priced computers are required to run projects on Autodesk’s Revit software
  • Software upgrades and BIM are increasing the demand on infrastructure and staff
  • Mobility is not an option when architects are unable to leave their computers while designs are being rendered
  • Improving efficiency is forcing firms to review and renegotiate IT contracts, software licenses, and maintenance agreements
  • Increasing file sizes from 3D Modeling and other applications are driving storage capacity and network bandwidth
