The Power of Collaboration
Accelerating the adoption of data-driven insights to deliver project certainty
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.— May 23, 2019 — It is difficult to gain any actionable insights from a 1,500-page monthly cost report. But 10 years ago, that’s what a project manager on one of Kiewit’s largest infrastructure projects in North America would’ve had to do. Today, InEight is helping to change the way Kiewit’s capital projects are managed, mobilized and measured.
Although 10 years ago technology innovation in the construction industry was lagging, Kiewit recognized the opportunity and initiated a digital transformation to lay the foundation for increased business growth. Today, Kiewit uses InEight solutions to drive data-driven insights and collaboration that minimize risks, improve operational efficiency and deliver project certainty. InEight delivers a common suite of tools designed by real construction professionals and integrated into a system that supports the capital project business – from small jobs to large jobs, whether it is for building a road, bridge, power plant or an oil processing facility.
Built on Microsoft Azure’s secure cloud environment, InEight’s modular project management applications utilize a Microsoft Dynamics 365 integration and leverage Power BI for modern data visualization, analytics and reporting. This combination elegantly supports InEight’s commitment to deliver to its customers a powerful, intuitive view of project and portfolio performance. Microsoft technology provides the right platform and expertise to support InEight’s solutions technology and Kiewit’s overall performance requirements.
“Delivering predictable outcomes is our obsession. When customers have actionable data earlier, it drives better decisions,” said Tad Bungener, executive vice president, InEight. “The deeper you drive digitization throughout your projects, the more impactful and transformative the outcomes. With InEight, contractors and owners can realize far greater levels of project certainty, while embracing a collaborative approach.”
InEight and Kiewit captured this collaborative effort in a video available on the Microsoft In Business blog.
