Oracle Aconex is the first project management solution to achieve British Standards Institution (BSI) Kitemark certification of the ISO standard and DIN specification for Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. This global certification gives engineering and construction organizations the confidence that Oracle Aconex complies with the latest BIM standards, which can speed software procurement, mitigate project risk, and save companies time and money.
Oracle Aconex is a project management cloud application that construction and engineering firms use to unite teams and centralize the management of information and processes across projects worldwide.
"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. "As the digitization of the industry and move towards BIM continues, choosing the right solution can be difficult. This certification demonstrates that we are providing cloud solutions that support best practices across construction environments and aligned with BIM standards."
Achieving the BSI Kitemark for BIM Software, validates that:
- The functionality of Oracle Aconex enables information management in accordance with the relevant process requirements of the ISO 19650 standard and DIN SPEC 91391 specification, helping ensure efficient collaboration across the project life cycle.
- Oracle has adopted a security-minded approach in accordance with the relevant requirements of the ISO 19650 framework.
- Oracle is providing assurance to users of its software that it is taking and responding to feedback to ensure customer satisfaction.
"Oracle's commitment to adopting best practice in the building industry is impressive and it is demonstrated by the engagement of the senior leadership of Oracle Construction and Engineering and by the achievement of the BSI Kitemark certification to ISO 19650 and DIN SPEC 91391" stated Pietro Foschi, BSI Group Director Assurance Services. "These are exciting and challenging times: organizations can rest assured that Oracle's software is fully embracing those BIM best practices."
"I would like to congratulate Oracle on their commitment to encouraging a collaborative approach across the life cycle of a built asset," Andy Butterfield, managing director 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 utilizing the appropriate BIM software to support their needs."
