MAKING CONCRETE A MORE SUSTAINABLE BUILDING MATERIAL

November 11, 2022

Making concrete whitepaper
Concrete is an outstanding building material. It is widely available, economical, hard and durable like stone, and easy to work with – all attractive properties for the construction industry. However, concrete also has its disadvantages. The cement contained in concrete consumes a lot of energy during its production process and emits large amounts of CO2. This, combined with the enormous demand for concrete and the simultaneous low recycling rate, makes concrete less-than-friendly for the environment.

INTERNET OF THINGS IN CONSTRUCTION

whitePaper | February 27, 2022

The term Internet of Things has become increasingly popular over the last few years, although it has actually existed for a long time, i.e., going back many years. It is probably one of the most talked about technological developments in the construction industry at the moment. But how far away are we from actually using and benefiting from the Internet of Things in construction? How complex is it and what can you do with it? Or perhaps how do you get ready for it if the Internet of Things is to change the industry considerably in the coming years?

Engineering Data Management and Document Control

whitePaper | February 20, 2020

Engineering Data Management is all about the creation, version control and fast retrieval of documents. It has little or nothing to do with formal change management, or building a reliable audit trail. Engineering Data Management Systems should make life for the engineer as simple as possible without introducing too much complexity. Document control on the other hand, is the management of documents through their life cycle with a much higher degree of reliability for security, version control, review cycle, visibility, availability and, most importantly, for a controlled and reliable audit trail.

THE TELECOMMUNICATIONS INDUSTRY EMBRACES CLOUD-NATIVE ENGINEERING

whitePaper | February 24, 2022

Cloud-native engineering empowers organizations to design and develop scalable, agile, cost-effective applications and run them in dynamic environments such as on-premises or in public, private, or hybrid clouds. A cloud-native application consists of microservices working together in an application that can be scaled easily. These microservices are often packaged in code along with libraries and dependencies to run anywhere. In a cloud-native app, the application code is designed, built, and delivered very differently than it would be for conventional, monolithic apps. Cloud-native engineering enables loosely coupled systems that are resilient, manageable, and observable to be combined with robust automation, allowing engineers to make changes frequently.

ENGINEERING THE NXT

whitePaper | May 24, 2022

The pace and degree of digital transformation has accelerated in the past year as businesses were forced to devise newer strategies to ensure business continuity while minimizing the negative impact of the pandemic. Enterprises that had made significant investments in digital technologies were better poised to face the unexpected and rapid changes in business scenarios, whereas those with low digital maturity had to spend a significant part of the early days of the pandemic in transforming their operations to suit the new normal. External factors such as customer needs and requirements, quality, reduction of production and control costs, environmental impact of products, etc., are pushing enterprises to re-evaluate their business strategies. They are continuously striving to find the right balance of increasing the margins of legacy products and to generate revenue growth through investments made towards digital innovation, new products, and services.
