For many years, the construction industry had a fairly clear path for automation. New ERP systems every ten years or so, estimating solutions for bidding, a PM application for RFIs and Submittals. Ten years ago, things got more complicated as the marketplace offered many more types of systems and solutions to automate various functions (e.g. Human Resources, BIM, and tool tracking). Today, there is even more congestion in the marketplace, overlapping functions, and varying levels of success as well as consolidation of the smaller developers by the larger ones. How can a contractor make sense of this and make good decisions for his/her own organization? This session seeks to provide some clarity around the position we are in and where the technology is heading. We will also look at how contractors can better plan for evolving IT landscape, select and implement better, and finally, get greater return from the investment in IT.  

Learning Objectives: 

  • Gain perspective on the larger landscape of technology in construction 
  • Explore ways of thinking about your own organization and how to evaluate and prioritize new solutions 
  • Learn proper ways of evaluating software solution and implementing for success
