AEC VALUE CHAIN AND DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
EC vs Manufacturing. The separation between these two industries existed for decades. Software vendors specialized to provide a solution for each of the verticals. Earlier last week I shared my thoughts about AEC and Manufacturing Software converging and it raised a bunch of interesting questions. Thanks to all of you who commented online and offline.
