CMiC, the leader in creating open and advanced enterprise-wide software solutions for project based organizations, recently wrapped up Connect 2011, its 13th Annual User Group Conference, and the largest gathering of industry leading professionals from technologically progressive AEC firms and capital project owners. Attendees gathered at the Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas, NV and the number of new clients illustrated the success of CMiC’s growing user group, which was formed to share information, innovations and strategies for each generation of CMiC Solutions.
According to Vince Sarubbi, Vice-President of Technology at Webcor Builders, “The CMiC Connect conference is an excellent opportunity for all members of the user group to discuss and share CMiC best practices and case studies. In the current financial environment, CMiC Connect is a key component in making sure that Webcor maximizes its investment in CMiC. As an active participant in the sessions, I appreciate the client driven nature of the conference and look forward to next year’s conference.”
The three day conference saw CMiC unveil its next generation suite of cloud based enterprise project solutions, notably X Cloud, X Projects and Tools 2.0. CMiC also unveiled Open Enterprise v10X, a comprehensive upgrade for its current flagship product, Open Enterprise v10. Open Enterprise v10X is set to launch in January 2012, and will be centered on the user experience, with more expansive customization functionality built into the product. Layton Construction, Webcor Builders and DPR Construction were announced as the winners of the prestigious CMiC Innovation Awards.
“This was definitely the most collaborative Connect conference yet” said Bassem Hamdy, Chief Marketing Officer, CMiC. “In the past, we challenged our user group to fight the status quo and set out about developing the tools to empower them do that. The response has been phenomenal. This year’s conference saw a marked increase in the number of client driven sessions and I’ve been amazed to see how different companies have customized CMiC to perform the exact set of functions that is right for their projects and their organizations”.
