Enhancing Digital Outcomes Through Optimised Data Sharing



By Adam Beck | Executive Director, Smart Cities Council Australia New Zealand | Secretariat, Centre for Data Leadership | Administrator, ANZ Digital Twin Hub


The session at DTW explored options to improve data sharing across sectors. It included a discussion on how to build trust in the quality of data across sectors for construction and asset management, particularly:

  • What are some of the current barriers and opportunities to sharing data and information between organisations in relation to BIM and Digital Twin?

  • What is the role of having a common information classification and nomenclature scheme such as Uniclass or VBIS?

  • How might we build validation of data from different organisations and seek to build a universally accepted approach, by building on existing approaches from other organisations such as BIM4Water UK?

Presentations included:

  • Session overview (Greg Ryan, WSAA Director Business Excellence)

  • Sydney Water (Shane Reilly, Digital Engineering Manager) will discuss how they see the future of data sharing – opportunities and barriers

  • Level Crossing Removal Project in Victoria (Ben Fox and Robert Theadore) discussing their approach to data sharing, opportunities and issues

  • Virtual Buildings Information Systems (VBIS) (Heshan Samarawickrama, Manager VBIS Australia) outlining their current approach to data classification and how it will benefit.
