BISL® NEXT – The NEXT level for optimizing BIM

BISL® NEXT – The NEXT level for optimizing BIM

 We start with plenty of “known”acronyms, so just to be clear:

BISL: Business Information Service Library

BIM: Business Information Manangemnt

NEXT: this is not an acronym, it is just the word NEXT, meaning: following, coming right after.

BiSL® Next is therefore an up-to-date version of the successful BISL® and describes the framework of the next generation BiSL®.

BiSL® Next is a public domain standard for business information management with guiding principles, good practices and practical templates.

It offers guidance for digitally engaged business leaders and those who collaborate with them, with the ultimate goal to improve business performance through better use of information and technology.
