Construction Industry Institute (CII) Data Warehouse
CII, based at The University of Texas at Austin, is a consortium of more than 140 leading owner, engineering-contractor, and supplier firms from both the public and private arenas. These organizations have joined together to enhance the business effectiveness and sustainability of the capital facility life cycle through CII research, related initiatives, and industry alliances. The CII Data Warehouse is the first of its kind for the Engineering and Construction business.
Capital Asset Analytics in the Big Data Era
Formed in 1996, the mission of CII’s Performance Assessment (Benchmarking) Program was to obtain and evaluate project performance data. Since that time, the program has helped countless CII members and the industry, but the common theme was the wish for more data. There is a profound truth to the aphorism “what gets measured, gets improved.” The Data Warehouse is envisioned to address this issue.
“Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing.”
— Warren Buffet
What's the secret to knowing what you're doing when it comes to capital projects? It's data. The future of our industry, and its ability to understand and mitigate sizable risk, is dependent on data.
CII's Data Warehouse is hosted at the The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC). TACC designs and operates some of the world's most powerful computing resources. The extraordinary resources of TACC are powering the data renaissance at CII and in our industry.
CII is able to leverage the hundreds of millions of dollars of IT investment at TACC for an unmatched (low) price for our members. Most importantly, these data cannot be sold. Precisely because CII is a not-for-profit headquartered at a leading public university, it is the very best place for your data to reside.
