Construction Collaboration Technologies

The construction industry is not as sleepy as it sometimes thought to be. Project collaboration (sometimes also called "project portals" or "project extranets") are becoming recognized at the start of the 21st century as a powerful tool for the development and management of complex projects. They center on the effective and efficient use of web-based software and are designed for a wide range of operators.
What is it? How does it work? Why have these applications become important now? How does it fit with partnering and other current industry developments? Is web-based software desirable, secure and economic? What things should we look out for when choosing a system or a provider, and what are the technical requirements? What are the costs and benefits? How is it currently developing and how will it be used in the future? Answers are here.
Paul Wilkinson is one of the sector's leading analysts and is well placed to present an authoritative work with up-to-date practical information and advice.
