BIM As a Subset of Big Data

Peter Cholakis nails the connection between BIM and Big Data in the post linked below.  Peter has been way out in front to the pack for a long time on the topic of BIM to FM.  It's worth paying attention to what he has to say.

James, I am confused by the post by Peter and further confused by your advocating Peter's premise.

Maybe there is a typo in his premise sentence. "3D visualization software products currently promoted as BIM (Building Information Modeling) are not solutions for this task."

The ONUMA System is 3D visualization software currently promoted as BIM and it is a solution for Big Data tasks.

Peter later goes on to talk more favorably about BIM's contributions to Big Data solutions, so I am getting mixed messages.

Maybe I missed something. Any clarifications would be appreciated.
