Data Drives Infrastructure Construction

Data and analytics are critical to help drive work forward on the construction jobsite, and today many of the large infrastructure construction companies are turning to technology to further deliver this information.

HNTB is an employee-owned infrastructure firm that is serving public and private owners and contractors, and it understands the lifecycle of infrastructure and addresses any challenges.

Similar to many companies, HNTB’s data silos weren’t offering complete information to those working on the project. Further, the analytics process wasn’t fast or turnkey. This made it difficult for the company’s employees to analyze the pool of data derived from the company’s projects.

As such, it recognized that it needed to better leverage the data and develop analytics that could be tapped across the enterprise. To help, HNTB began working with Information Builders to improve its reporting system and build visibility throughout the enterprise, which enables users to quickly access the information they need. Information Builders is also helping to automate the data capture and reporting capabilities.

HNTB is implementing the WebFOCUS and iWay solutions to build a holistic data-management platform that provides real time analysis. WebFOCUS analyzes HNTB’s data for up-to-date insights and iWay technology will integrate data from HNTB’s siloed sources.

All this technology allows HNTB executives to access, analyze, and track program process and success, helping the company maximize the value of its data by tapping into the insights available in solutions.
