We live in a great era for the information technology.

A lot of powerful tools allow us to build, deploy and scale, fast and easily, software and services or infrastructures: we can setup a cluster in few minutes (using an IaaS), through a SaaS configure our backend while technologies like real-time scaling allow Ops teams to sleep peacefully.

 In this scenario micro-services architecture is spreading wide, greatly responding to the dynamism and cheapness our era requires. Read more

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an innovative technology that represents a new way to build. According to a recent market analysis, in a few years BIM will become the standard process for building construction and the world’s biggest countries are already studying specific laws to spread the development of this construction standard.

The acronym BIM was first used on “Modelling multiple views on buildings”, a study conducted by architects Tolman and Van Nederveen in 1992, to widespread in the beginning of the new millennium.

Internet Of Things, mostly called by its acronym IoT, is a market worth, only in Italy, almost 3 billion euros, registering a 40% growth during the last year. IoT is a term coined back in 1999, by Kevin Ashton (aged 49), a tech pioneer and visionary, founder of the Auto-ID Center research consortium, at MIT. While working on RFID, the radio frequency identification, he conceived a sensor system capable of linking the physical world to the web, extracting data from objects and making them digitally usable. Within IoT we will always find three basic components: sensor-equipped instruments + an integration software + the internet connection to the outer world (and possibly also AI or soft cloud softwares, necessary for additional services).
