There are many changes that have happened industry-wide, but the proliferation of mobile technology and the widespread availability of fast internet on jobsites are the foundation and enablers of the technology explosion.

In addition to internet access and mobile devices, computing power also doubles about every 2 years, according to Moore’s law. With that doubling comes the ability to process larger and more complex data sets. With the ability to consume more data, vendors can add more instrumentation and do not have to be as conservative with the amount of data their tools generate.

System development teams are there to aide in decision-making, acquisition, implementation, and integration of construction technology systems. With all of the new technology improvements surrounding data, they are also the team generally responsible for interpreting that data and turning it into an asset that the operations and finance teams can leverage.

Organizational Structures and Leadership Development
As contractors look at their organizational structures with an eye toward both sustainable growth and succession, they must balance the efficiency a functional area structure provides with the leadership development of a business unit structure.
Allocation of Management Resources
Most new initiatives that contractors try often fall short of expectations due to poor management time allocation during start-up. We work with a lot of contractors and rarely see truly bad ideas or teams that truly can’t execute.

A Software Developer is just one of the many roles that make up the systems development team.
