McGraw Hill Construction's Dodge Global Network, a suite of information resources built on a database of current project leads and detailed project information, is completing transition of its subscribers to a new technology platform. The user interface coincides with the release of several new features. Early feedback indicates the system is now more useful and user-friendly.
The transformation is due to a shift from the old service model, in which project information was packaged and pushed to clients on request, to a user- managed pull of data, made possible by the embrace of big-data management and search tools and the use of cloud technology, says Isaac Sacolick, McGraw Hill Construction's CIO. Like Dodge, ENR is part of McGraw Hill Construction under the parent company, McGraw Hill Financial.
