AIA Collaborates with Ironworks to Launch Website
October 22, 2007

Ironworks Consulting, a management and Web consulting firm, has launched an eKnowledge solution for the American Institute of Architects (AIA) including the creation of a new Web site, which is focused on the development of a robust, collaborative on-line community.

Ironworks was tasked by the AIA to design and develop a vibrant Knowledge Management solution using several unique technologies and innovative concepts. AIA SolosoTM provides the AIA’s membership and the building community with a “one stop shop” for information and knowledge relevant to the architectural profession. In addition, the new AIA Web property will enhance the online collaboration and communication between its membership by implementing several emerging Web concepts, including social networking mechanisms, blogs, Wikis, and RSS capabilities.

Personalized mini-sites allow constituents to optionally view a member’s profile information that may include a listing of favorites, contributed content, and/or a collection of personalized slideshows that can be shared and downloaded. Built into the core of the site experience is the ability to offer comments, ratings and reviews of existing content, find others who share similar interests, and self-publish new content and architectural projects. AIA SolosoTM ( leverages a combination of technology solutions including Endeca Enterprise Search, Oracle Universal Content Management Tool (formerly Stellent) and ThinkMap Visualization Software.
