||Building IT 2000 - A hypertext database of predictions on the use of information technology in building
||Hypertext is a medium particularly suitable for providing easy access to diverse information andmaintaining it. It was used for a database of papers on the future of many aspects of informationtechnology and their likely use by the year 2000. The recommendations include the development ofproject databases to integrate the use of computers by all parties to a building project, and theestablishment of a building IT forum in the UK. CICA acted as research co-ordinator for theproject and already carries out many of the functions of the building IT forum which will also needto include other organisations in the UK and in other countries.The data in Building IT 2000 will be maintained on hypertext and will take advantage of futuredevelopments in hypermedia These new techniques, with the ability to provide selective access to,and payment for, digital data could help solve the problems of managing building project data.Building IT 2000 will be demonstrated at this conference to show its flexibility. It is available as aprinted report or on disk for Macintosh or PC Windows 3 computers.
