ARCHIBUS Ranked as One of World’s Largest Software and Services Providers for 6th time by Software Magazine

Top Real Estate, Infrastructure&Facilities Management Software Developer Enhances Latest Offerings with Advanced Enterprise Asset Management, Strategic Space Planning, Environmental Sustainability, Mobility and other Applications

December 14, 2015 — Boston, Massachusetts

ARCHIBUS,  the #1 developer in the world of real estate, infrastructure, and facilities management software and services, today announces its inclusion in Software Magazine’s Software 500 ranking of the world’s largest software and services providers. ARCHIBUS and its associated ARCHIBUS Federated Eco-System is ranked #55 on the list, with total annual software and services activities exceeding $2.7 billion (USD). Rankings also indicate that ARCHIBUS is: the World’s 3rd Largest “Enterprise Application/Data Integration” Provider; Boston’s Largest Software and Services Provider; and, the largest Family Owned/Privately Held Software and Services Provider in the World.

“The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers, and IT staff research and create the short list of business partners,” says Thomas Tetreault, publisher/editor-in-chief of Software Magazine. “It is a quick reference of vendor viability. The ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue from the 2014 fiscal year. This includes revenue from software licenses, maintenance and support, training, software-related services, and consulting.”

The “Intelligent-Advancements” of ARCHIBUS V.22 were enabled by the expertise of over 8 million ARCHIBUS Federated Eco-System (AFE) Members who manage over 22 million properties and buildings in over 190 countries. Research and Development (R&D) activities, which were supported with an R&D budget of over $768 million, and recommendations from AFE Members produced significant results. Four of the areas of advancement include:

  1. “Intelligent Extensions,” via ARCHIBUS Intelligent-Enterprise Information Modeling™ (i-EIM™) Elements for World-Class apps, enabling i-EAM, i-CAD, i-BIM, i-GIS, i-CMMS, i-ERP and many others
  2. Advancement of over 100,000 i-EIM-driven Connectors for legacy systems, point solutions and other technologies enable creation of Ubiquitous BIG Data Solutions™ that are founded on the syncing of an organization’s data, information, knowledge, and wisdom
  3. Intelligent City and Community Transformation™” (ICCT™) Programs and Initiatives focus on the evolution of “Smart” Properties, Building & Cities into “Intelligent” Properties, Buildings and Cities
  4. Advancement of Intelligent Cities Councils (ICCs™) in dozens of countries around the globe.

“The ‘Intelligent Extensions’ of ARCHIBUS are proving to be a bellwether of technology direction,” saysBruce K. Forbes, Founder/President and CEO, ARCHIBUS, Inc.  “For example, Intelligent-Enterprise Asset Management enables the creation of ‘intelligent assets’ through i-EIM-driven i-EAM elements such as Quad-directional Connectivity™ connecting and integrating Alpha/Numeric, CAD, BIM, and GIS Apps with intelligent consoles and other apps. One great example of the benefit of i-EAM is at a leading European Telecommunications Company who, within just 18 months of utilizing ARCHIBUS i-EAM and other ARCHIBUS offerings, were able to save over 1,000 million (USD). The savings were then utilized to increase their productivity and profitability as reflected in their market value increasing over 160% during the following two years.”

In 2014, the 100,000+ Connectors were empowered by 90+ ARCHIBUS Applications and Activities helping ARCHIBUS Users save their organizations over $175 billion (USD), while increasing productivity and profitability. Some of the savings were utilized for environmental sustainability, “Smart” Properties, Buildings and Cities initiatives and ICCT Programs and Initiatives.

“ARCHIBUS, over the last 40 years, has been involved with the development and deployment of “Smart” and “Intelligent” technologies, practices and workflows for properties, buildings and cities,” says Mr. Forbes. He also noted, “ICCT Programs and Initiatives have progressed at a remarkable rate this last year and include best practices, benchmarks, balanced scorecards, TCO and KPI metrics, Needs Analyses and Alignment Initiatives — all of which are supported by AFE Peer Advisors and Consultants who enable the cost efficient and timely evolution from ‘Smart’ offerings to ‘Intelligent’ offerings, as well as rapid new initiatives of Intelligent Cities Councils.”

With the assistance of ARCHIBUS and AFE Peer Advisors from around the globe, over a dozen countries have been involved in establishing and/or advancing their Intelligent City Council initiatives. The remarkable news is that the millions of AFE professionals involved in the use of ARCHIBUS and in ARCHIBUS User Groups (AUGs), Special Interest Groups (SIGs), and Centers of Excellence (CoEs) have been willing to share their experiences with others, helping them realize extensive savings of time, effort and money.

5 Reasons Your Company Needs a Painted Picture: Pt. 3 — Present a Unified Growth Strategy

This is part 3 of a 5 part series on “The 5 Reasons Your Company Needs A Painted Picture”

With each New Year, I noticed many friends and family, myself included, making resolutions to finally “get in shape.” While “getting fit” is a great goal, it is rather arbitrary. Simply stating you want to get in shape or get fit lacks the detail others need to adequately comprehend your goal. My understanding might be to simply drop ten pounds, while yours consists of a lifestyle change resulting in healthier eating habits and establishing a routine exercise plan. It is only when we are able to share the full picture that we are able to fully understand and help each other accomplish our goals.  Having a Unified Growth Strategy at work is no different.


Share your vision: Paint the Picture
By now, you understand the basics of a Painted Picture. Thus, you know that it is hands-down, a good tool for a CEO to express their vision to staff. Therefore, one component of the painted picture should address how the company is going to move forward and grow in the upcoming years.

Not only do we need to share what and where our destination is; We need to share with our teams how we are getting to our destination. Driving cross country on Route 66 is a much different experience than a direct flight from JFK to LA. You can’t leave your staff guessing what they’re doing, where they’re going, and how they’re going to get there or you will wind up at different destinations or even worse getting to the same destination at completely different times.
exactly

Which Growth Strategy is right for you?

Well, it’s going to depend on what you want. Perhaps your company’s strategy is going to be working with existing clients and helping them with their needs. That is a viable and sustainable growth plan. On the other hand, perhaps you’re going to look at selling to new clients and having a strong marketing strategy. If that is the case, then you’re going to need to look at implementing a sales force to go and do the legwork. Or perhaps you’re looking at expanding into new geographic areas. Maybe it means bringing in new software or technology to increase your ability or reach.

Once you made your decision, the point then is to clearly express the goals to your staff. Because if you just say, “We need to grow this year,” each team member is going to envision a different process to reaching that goal. Once your team fully understands the vision, though, they will jump on board. They will be behind you and they will understand what their role is in the plan or they will leave to other opportunities that fit their goals more closely.

Again, it all ties back to painting the picture for your team: whether it is in a growth strategy meeting or in the gym, you must have a very clear and specific goal you are reaching for if you want to get anything done.
