It looks at how BIMcloud is different from the BIM Server technology that was introduced in 2009 in ArchiCAD 13 to better support model-based collaboration, the problems it was developed to solve, how it can support collaboration by the extended design team and through mobile devices in addition to traditional computers, its deployment options, and additional capabilities.
