Launch of Cityzenith

As I mentioned in my last post, Cityzenith launched last week in Chicago. Thanks to everyone who turned out to see us move out of beta and into a full blown data platform for BIM and GIS. We were lucky enough to have many special guests speaking including State of Illinois CIO Hardik Bhatt, City of Chicago Chief Data Officer Tom Schenk, John Kizior of AECOM, Tom Coleman of WSP-USA, and Gordon Feller of Meeting of the Minds. Michael Jansen, our CEO, lead the discussion and talked about the road to where we are today and how we’re going to change how things are done.

Note: There was a video here of the launch but it has been scrubbed from Vimeo by Cityzenith. My apologies but it was amazing.

A warm thanks to attendees from Arup, HOK, HKS, CannonDesign, Foursquare, Perkins+Will, SOM, AECOM , Gensler, DeWalt, CallisonRTKL, WSP USA, BuiltWorlds, the University of Illinois at Chicago, the Illinois Institute of Technology, Argonne National Laboratory and many more who attended. The hard work has begun for us and we’re looking forward to helping companies connect with each other around the world.

If you’d like to give Cityzenith a spin free of change, sign up now. Let us know if you’d like to see a demo first. There is so much more to come, stay tuned!


Cityzenith Beta Release

Well today is a big day at Cityzenith, we are announcing our beta program.

Chicago CIO Brenna Berman presents Cityzenith’s 5D Smart City to Mayor Emmanuel of Chicago and Mayor Khan of London.

Cityzenith’s 5D Smart World™, the focus of the BETA User Program, is a complete, web-based Software-as-a-Service platform designed to help AEC firms and Real Estate companies transform their existing investments in BIM and other technologies into valuable tools for aggregating, searching, managing, analyzing, and reusing project information. Designed to help Smart Cities manage the massive amounts of data generated in today’s cities, the platform has been modified and adapted for this Beta Program to suit the specific needs of the professional AEC and CRE communities who design, build, own, and operate Smart Cities, Smart Campuses, and Smart Buildings the world over.

We are excited to be working with some of the biggest names in the AEC and Real Estate industries including; AECOM, WSP-Parsons Brinkerhoff, Gensler, SOM, Microsoft, RMW, Accenture, Surbana Jurong, UI Labs City Digital and the GSA.
