Data continues to fascinate the construction industry. Where other industries are much more mature in terms of their ‘big data’ journey, in construction it’s still gaining traction.
Construction is often considered being behind in its digitisation journey, but in this weakness lies a significant strength: the ability to innovate like never before. The opportunities presented by technology are starting to justify the cost more than ever.
We’re at a stage where it’s challenging to understand how construction and engineering companies managed without what we now consider ‘big data,’ particularly considering the level of control, transparency, threat awareness, and accountability it provides.
