PROJECT DATA REPOSITORY
VitroCAD is an on-premise Engineering Data Management system based on Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft SQL Server. All project metadata is centrally within in SharePoint to prevent data loss, ensuring version control and an up-to-date audit trail.
We usually advise customers to configure SQL to store only file references, in order to save disk space. Data files that are themselves located on the company’s secure data storage system and can only be accessed via SharePoint.
CENTRAL DATA ACCESS
Microsoft SharePoint provides you with centralized secure access control and user permission. To find out more about SharePoint access control, please visit the Microsoft website.
To enable efficient and convenient work with project data files, VitroCAD has a built-in project permission mechanism that assigns users to specific projects or project types. This allows you to easily control and protect your data, or update the project team.
Users have three ways to work with data.
The first and most powerful way to work is via Portal using Internet Explorer or any other internet browser. The second and more convenient wayto work is with AutoCAD plug-ins. The final and most popular way is to use Windows Explorer. This allows VitroCAD users the capability to work with documents and drawings through a already familiar interface.
