For most people, the phrase construction data analytics is enough to make eyes glaze over.

Construction projects continue to grow more complex, creating new challenges for minimizing risk and improving quality and construction safety initiatives.
Digitization of construction processes and the use of mobile devices on jobsites captures more data than ever before, data that could be used to improve quality and reduce risks. But, 95% of that data is going unused by construction and engineering firms, according to FMI.
