Work Smarter: Eliminate Inefficiencies in Construction with Big Data

According to a 2017 survey by KPMG International, construction companies are optimistic about the role technology will play in their progress. In fact, 63 percent of chief information officers acknowledge the opportunities therein. Unfortunately, a majority of respondents — 57 percent — described their own technology as lagging behind the adoption curve; meanwhile, a paltry 5 percent consider their organizations to be "cutting edge."

IT adoption in construction is hampered by a few industry-specific considerations. The major concern is a highly distributed employee structure, which creates mobile security vulnerabilities, raises challenges for remote connectivity, and file version control. Most construction companies have one or more centralized offices, but their employees are spread across project sites. This distribution can make it difficult to sustain certain IT standards, such as ensuring consistent patch management across devices and workstations.
