Building Information Modeling (BIM), is now becoming a standard, adopted by many companies in the AEC industry. Software vendors are in the process of enabling BIM compatibility into their software to support standards demanded by companies and regularities. With many stakeholders involved in a large BIM project, exchanging information, lack of integration, governance and visibility of information could lead to a host of complexities. To address these issues, Mitra Innovation has developed a lightweight, robust, scalable and extendable platform called BIM Exchange, which is built using open source products that includes the WSO2 middleware platform.

In this joint webinar, Sudaraka and Derek of Mitra Innovation will focus on

  • The requirement for BIM and and how it can help meet the AEC industry’s challenges
  • An overview of the BIM Exchange platform: architecture, BIM Exchange API, user portal, and admin console
  • Why they picked WSO2’s middleware platform to build the BIM Exchange and their ongoing partnership with WSO2

Dassana from WSO2 will explain how the BIM Exchange leverages the WSO2 platform’s capabilities in integration, API management, security, and scalability; he will briefly talk about the use of

  • WSO2 Identity Server to manage API and data security of the BIM Exchange
  • WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus to provide seamless integration between applications
  • WSO2 Business Activity Monitor that enables the collection of data, and provides intelligence and operational analytics
  • WSO2 Complex Event Processor which enables real-time analytics
  • WSO2 User Engagement Server which allows end users to create their own dashboards and share them with necessary security permissions
