Since my childhood, the world of engineering has held an irresistible allure for me. Guided by my father, an engineer in the construction industry whose passion and expertise left an indelible mark, I have developed a deep appreciation for the transformative power of this field. Today, I am excited to delve into this realm of architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) and explore how my company CTERA is revolutionizing data management in this industry. In contrast to the humble drafting table and pens that I grew up around, today, the construction process generates vast amounts of data – from BIM models to engineering blueprints and intricate scheduling information. Managing this data deluge can be a formidable task, but we see these complexities as opportunities to create innovative solutions that bring significant improvement.
Rising to the Challenges of Data Management
Professionals in the AEC world are expected to store, retrieve, and share large files across multiple locations every day. Managing vast amounts of data, facilitating efficient collaboration, and ensuring robust security are not just challenges but critical factors that could make or break a project’s success.
At CTERA, we’re passionate about solving these complex issues. We aim to transform these challenges into a springboard that propels the efficiency of your projects and teams.
We are immensely proud of CTERA’s Global File System – a data management technology designed specifically with engineering firms in mind. This comprehensive hybrid cloud solution effectively addresses the pressing issues around data storage, collaboration, and security. It’s more than a platform; it’s a catalyst for change in data management.
Making a Difference
Consider The Korte Company, a design-build construction firm. They faced the daunting tasks of reducing operational costs and enhancing collaboration across geographically dispersed teams. With CTERA, they streamlined their file management, resulting in a significant boost in project efficiency and collaborative success. Their confidence in our solution reflects our unwavering commitment to our customers.
Likewise, when S.J. Louis Construction was under the threat of a devastating ransomware attack, they deployed CTERA’s Global File System. Our advanced ransomware protection mechanisms, continuous data protection, and instant disaster recovery capabilities enabled them to bounce back and resume their projects without significant disruption.
A New Era for Infrastructure Development with CTERA
We firmly believe that the construction industry is on the brink of a digital revolution. Data science, machine learning and global file access are becoming pivotal in this field, and CTERA is at the forefront of driving this change.
From providing limitless storage for remote construction crews, efficient file collaboration across the globe, and advanced data protection and recovery solutions, CTERA allows engineering firms to unleash the full potential of their data.
