Dexter + Chaney to Exhibit New Project Management Software at World of Concrete

Seattle-based construction software developer Dexter + Chaney (http://www.dexterchaney.com) will unveil the new release of its Spectrum Project Management software at the World of Concrete trade show in Las Vegas Feb. 5 – 8, 2013 (booth C4103 in the central hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center). Spectrum Project Management will be available as part of the suite of applications that comprises Dexter + Chaney’s Spectrum® Construction Software product line.

According to John Chaney, Dexter + Chaney president: “Spectrum Project Management represents a significant re-investment in the capabilities of our project management software. The goal was to create a powerful project management system that would be as useful in the field as it would be in the office – and we’ve succeeded.”

A major reason for that success, Chaney explained, is the cloud computing technologies that the company employs. “Just like every other Spectrum application, Spectrum Project Management is 100 percent web-based,” Chaney said. “Users simply launch a web browser from anywhere they’re working to access the full features of the software.”

The new software offers capabilities that typically require several software products to achieve. “Project management is not one task performed in one location,” added Chaney. “Instead, it involves a continuous flow of work, data and documents that move from place to place and person to person. We’ve designed a complete system to help managers handle the work, the documents, the communication and the people that comprise complex construction projects.”

Spectrum Project Management is the latest product to result from the company’s commitment to construction operations. “The feedback we received from last year’s release of Venture™ Project Collaboration Software was that Venture’s workflow tracking and document control features were a real missing ingredient in existing project management solutions,” said Mark Peltz, Dexter + Chaney product manager for Construction Operations Software. “By integrating these capabilities into Spectrum Project Management, we’ve created a new breed of PM software.”

Venture was launched by Dexter + Chaney at World of Concrete in January 2012 where it received an award for Most Innovative Product. At World of Concrete 2013 Feb. 5-8, Dexter + Chaney welcomes everyone to join them each day at booth C4103 for a celebration of the launch of the new release of Spectrum Project Management and a prize give-away.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
