Cyril Verley, President and CEO of CDV Systems, an ALN Organizational Member, is a registered architect and a software architect. He will be our guest this week on ALN Th@3 pm ET to discuss an asset management governance approach for mapping facility assets that has emerged this year as an outcome of networking through the ALN. While the technology has been available for a long time, when combined with his company’s software that “harvests” data from Building Information Models, asset management success can be accelerated.
