Backup, storage and recovery
The integrity and security of your data are paramount. Backups of project data are captured hourly and retained for the life of the project for all clients. These backups are stored securely within the Amazon S3 infrastructure in Sydney, Australia. Recovery from a backup can be completed in less than 1 hour on request (charged additionally).
Data ownership and retention
Our clients retain ownership of all uploaded and created data within Envision. Envision allows easy download of project snapshots and analytic data exports for storage elsewhere – as frequently as desired. Projects can be archived for easy recall on request once a project has finished. At the end of a project, data and assets can be exported as a series of .csv files with a ZIP file of uploaded assets (eg photos, documents) and generated assets (eg reports, notices).
Security and encryption
All connections with Envision include transport layer security using HTTPS.
External system integration
Envision includes a fully documented ReSTful API and a custom API for specific external system integrations. Many integrations already exist for external systems including planning, finance, document control, correspondence, building information management (BIM) and geographic information systems (GIS).
Release and update cycle
To ensure ongoing compatibility with changing web browsers and mobile operating systems, we constantly update Envision, releasing these updates weekly.
In addition to security updates for web and mobile platforms, and any defect fixes, we also add incremental functional enhancements to meet the evolving needs of our clients.
- Most updates involve zero downtime.
- Updates that do require downtime are completed outside of business hours or on negotiation with clients to minimise disruption.
The availability and performance of Envision is continuously monitored. We are proud of our availability record, which typically exceeds 99.95% including planned maintenance and release activities (over a 12-month period).
