Oracle Aconex project management software has secured the BSI Kitemark for BIM software.
Oracle Aconex is a project management cloud application that construction and engineering firms use to unite teams and centralise the management of information and processes across projects worldwide. Oracle claimed it is the first project management software to secure the Kitemark.
“With a wide range of BIM software available, being the first solution to achieve Kitemark certification for both ISO and DIN standards with Oracle Aconex is a significant milestone,” said Mark Webster, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Construction and Engineering. “This certification demonstrates that we are providing cloud solutions that support best practices across construction environments, and aligned with BIM standards.”
Securing the BSI Kitemark for BIM software means the software meets the three key tests:
- its functionality enables information management in accordance with the relevant process requirements of the ISO 19650 standard and DIN SPEC 91391 specification;
- Oracle has adopted a security-minded approach in accordance with the relevant requirements of the ISO 19650 framework; and
- Oracle is providing assurance to users of its software that it is taking and responding to feedback to ensure customer satisfaction.
“I would like to congratulate Oracle on their commitment to encouraging a collaborative approach across the life cycle of a built asset,” said Andy Butterfield, MD of built environment at BSI. “As the demand for digital transformation in architecture, construction and asset management continues to grow, this certification ensures that users are utilising the appropriate BIM software to support their needs.”
The Kitemark for BIM software was introduced in the spring.
