Finally, a Yelp for Enterprise IT IT Central Station Launches the First Tech Product Review Site for the Fortune 1000

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 04, 2012

New York-based startup IT Central Station announces the launch of its new free social network for enterprise technology professionals at http://www.itcentralstation.com. IT Central Station is the industrys first online review site for the software, hardware and services used by Fortune 1000 enterprises.

Enterprises worldwide spend nearly $ 3 trillion annually on technology products and services. The technology professionals who spend this money base their decisions primarily on information from vendors, consultants and analysts. However, what they really want is access to actual users of the products and services to get unbiased opinions based on their real world experience. IT Central Station enables technology users to speak out and make their opinions heard while enabling technology buyers to tap into this wealth of knowledge to make the best buying decision.

The site has been in private beta since May 2012 and already includes hundreds of reviews of products and services from companies such as CA, Cisco, HP, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, VMware, as well as from smaller vendors.

IT Central Station was built for the needs of enterprise technology users. Site features include:

3D Engineering Solutions Uses Long Range Laser Scanning & Building Information Modeling (BIM) to Help Safely Move Massive Equipment into Fortune 100 Energy Facility

Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) March 28, 2012

Using long range laser scanning in combination with 3 software platforms and Building Information Modeling (BIM), 3D Engineering Solutions created a clash detection simulation that highlighted interferences preventing replacement equipment from entering a Fortune 100 power plant. After calculating the interferences, engineers cut away concrete from a plant door and shifted two sections of high-power conduits measuring 2-feet in diameter. Riggers then moved in massive turbines, with only 4-inches of clearance on either side of the turbine crate.

3D Engineering Solutions combined use of SolidWorks3D CAD design software; PolyWorkspoint cloud manipulation software; and FARO Scenescan alignment softwareto generate the simulation and recommend which interferences to eliminate. Our main focus was safety around the high power lines, said Rob Glassburn, Vice President of Operations at 3D Engineering. Our long range laser scanning device captured precise measurements of the power plant as millions of data points, and then our software models allowed us to figure out a path for the turbines that would physically work.

The energy facility, originally constructed decades ago, did not plan on future expansion requirements of todays equipment size and scope. The replacement turbines that needed to be installed were too large to fit through the plant doors.

Project Manager Piet Swanepoel said, The most difficult part of the project was the uncertainly. No one knew what the exact size of the turbine crate would be or how far away the crane would have to stand from the building. We accounted for the uncertainty of elements by setting up worst-case scenarios. We looked at the situation from all different angles using our software. We ended up with an established plan that went well. After interferences were eliminated, the turbines were moved into the building in about 3 hours. The plant never fully went offline.
