When you look at a skyscraper, what do you see? A looming tower made of steel and glass? But what about what you don’t see? Think about all of the considerations that need to be made before a skyscraper can come to fruition: the materials required to build it, the hours put into construction and the planned cost of the project versus the actual cost.
A small structure might generate hundreds of such questions, let alone a building towering looming over forty stories into the sky! For leading global construction software provider Construction Industry Solutions (COINS), all of these minute details need to be answered with high-integrity data — but that’s easier said than done. That’s where Progress stepped in to help.
COINS uses Progress DataDirect software to improve its customers’ profitability by rapidly and easily connecting raw information with third party BI applications. This allows COINS to automatically and transparently enable data to be queried, without the need for significant SQL coding.
Following industry best practices, COINS stores raw data in a form that is optimized for transaction processing. Progress plays a crucial role in connecting that varied construction data with COINS and third party analytics tools to answer the customers’ complex questions.
