San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
Recently, at the IT Forum Conference in Chicago, the COSA initiative was announced. The goals of this project are to create a standard schema for documents in all fields of construction resulting in an easier way to share information. This would solve, what is considered to be, a major problem for companies using software systems, lack of interoperability. Information from one part of a project could be useful to another sector, for example: information from an architect could be useful to an electrician working on the same project. Other examples of such documents include owner/contractor agreements, schedules of values, requests for information (RFIs), requests for proposals (RFPs), etc. At the IT Forum Conference, Benham, the founder and president of JB Knowledge Technologies, Inc., stated that “in order to impact change, users must demand integration, participate in the standard and try cloud integrated software”.
