Construction Industry Primed For Global 2025 Digital Transformation

Published on: August 15, 2018

Building and Construction Sector Awareness – Making Ready For the 2025 Global Digital Transformation

For a long time, the construction industry suffered loss in almost every aspect of digital transformation. This delay was partly due to the late introduction of construction-focused operations management software. But cause and effect also involves contractor resistance to new technology. However, the software and equipment side of the equation has not only broken out in force, it has also in many ways evolved beyond current expectations. This leaves only one remaining cause for construction industry arrears in the global arena of digital transformation:

Too many construction companies still refuse to embrace the possibilities.

But a change is at hand. According to report a from Research and Markets, there is a new building and construction sector 2025 forecast for global acceptance of digital transformation technology.

Construction Industry Digital Transformation – A Glimmer at Cause and Effect

So what is the hold up? Why are so many contractors missing the digital operations management revolution? Let us consider current hindrances to efficient gains in construction-related productivity. Such matters involve the likes of:

  • Ineffective planning
  • Poor risk management
  • Inadequate communication processes
  • Poor control over:
    • Equipment maintenance scheduling
    • Workforce and asset allocation
    • Safety compliance and confirmation
    • Timesheets, payroll and integrated billing processes
    • AND more.
  • AND The Lack of reliable automated digital management resources.

Individually and as a combined unit, any lag or shortage in the construction document management process can result in poor productivity, excessive rework and many other significant preventable job-cost increases. Therein lies the power of effective construction-orientated digital solutions. Accurate and comprehensive digital management of resources, documentation and auditing is a reliable yet long ignored solution for an industry that remains hampered by pen-to-paper, spreadsheet and word-of-mouth operations management.

Advancement Into An Age Of Digital Transformation Inevitable

At core to the building and construction sector, global digital transformation 2025 forecast is a focus on three primary areas of impact:

  1. A demand for bulk real-time management, transparency and sharing of big data
  2. Automation of workforce, assets, documentation, data integration and more
  3. Introduction of standardized asset management processes, including equipment maintenance and scheduling.

To linger behind is to risk falling out. The forecast presents an expectation of new mega trends, trends that involve combining the likes of artificial intelligence, real-time communications, social media platforms, cloud-based data exchange and automated data analytic projections. In technology, challenges to the predicted growth in digital construction management involve:

  • Complications with broad-spectrum roll-out across multiple projects, operations and sub-sectors
  • Lack of a current platform that promotes absolute interoperability
  • Weaknesses within the current regulatory framework
  • AND Misconceptions by industry stakeholders

Yet again, it is the general construction industry resistance to change that causes the greatest setback to a perfectly exacting solution to old-way construction operations management. Even so, this advancement into an age of digital transformation is inevitable. Moving forward is now. Go ahead and advance your company.
