Graphisoft Unveils BIMcloud in Tokyo

Graphisoft Unveils BIMcloud in Tokyo | BIM, 3D and Structural design application trends | Scoop.it
An architectural software leader in Asia but not in North America, Budapest-based Graphisoft assembles the press to introduce its technology to a wider audience.
Peter Zalman's insight:

Another failing is that the “ArchiCAD” name pigeon-holes the software for architectural design. It is not well known that Nemetschek also owns ancillary software, such as respectable rendering (Maxon) and structure analysis packages (Scia). The company does not market them organically – a disadvantage of Nemetschek’s hands-off management policy of the subsidiaries. (By contrast, Autodesk merges all its software in multiple suites and then markets the heck out of the lot.) Perhaps this silo’ing will change, as the company’s reformed management board consists of the CEOs of Allplan, Graphisoft, and Vectorworks. - See more at: http://gfxspeak.com/2014/04/08/graphisoft-unveils-bimcloud/?utm_source=feedly&utm_reader=feedly&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=graphisoft-unveils-bimcloud#sthash.2hWpEQB0.dpuf

Nice job by Cl3ver but the first sentence is key "The boom is coming … another one. Web standards, HTML5, and WebGL are enabling smart young companies to take 3D online."

This is indeed the truth. 

At 4D Pipeline, we've helped many companies create great 3D WebGL experiences. What is best about it is not only have we helped create great 3D WebGL experiences but UNIQUE and VALUABLE great 3D WebGL experiences.

WebGL and mobile allow young companies to take an idea to market that is rich, visual, immersive, and interactive. No longer do you need a team of 60, instead you do it with 1 or 2 developers in a couple of months. 

Take you idea to market today. Time waits for no one!

Interesting article. 
Often "social" is not viewed as mission critical. Other features come first. 

Social cannot simply be ignored. It's not a feature - it's way more than that. It needs to be part of your product (and company) DNA. Social/sharing matters incredibly. Do it and do it right. Lean from Instagram and Dropbox and other great socially connected Apps.

Focus on workflows that make sense to be social and collaborative. Change your product, change the industry, change the "slow" workflow, reach people. Involve.
