In construction, every decision makes a difference. To make those decisions with confidence, owners and delivery teams are increasingly looking to construction software to help them work in smarter and better-connected ways across the project and asset lifecycles. A new breed of construction technology, the intelligent platform, is helping the industry realize new levels of productivity to effect better project and business outcomes.
Over the last two decades, point solutions have delivered basic improvements in efficiency and standardized specific workflows for specific individuals and departments. But since these solutions are by nature disconnected, they create information silos and communication problems between teams and phases of construction.
Cloud-enabled platforms integrate point solutions to connect teams and applications across specified workflows. But data continues to be locked in specific applications, proprietary formats, and project silos, making it difficult to gain a complete view of performance across projects, processes, or portfolios. While first-generation platforms have facilitated better collaboration, faster decisions, and fewer errors, they fail to truly automate construction processes, and each step still requires significant manual effort.
Now with intelligent construction platforms, data is unlocked, and artificial intelligence and machine learning are leveraged to empower every go-forward decision. Organizations learn from the past to continuously improve the future. Intelligent platforms automatically synchronize every step of the construction process. As progress is captured in the field, decisions are made, and changes happen, downstream activities, teams, and supply chains are automatically adjusted.
The new generation of intelligent platforms accelerates performance by predicting outcomes, optimizing processes, and continuously improving the way you build and manage projects. The Oracle Smart Construction Platform accomplishes this by focusing on three principles.
Easily share information and keep everyone on the same page to avoid delays and rework. Configure workflows to boost efficiency, and preserve your margins with project controls and effective change management. Capture a complete, unalterable record of each project.
More than 30 organizations, including designers, contractors, cities, and permitting agencies, were able to collaborate seamlessly with each other while owning their specific data.
