About the Webinar

Kiewit has been a leader in the construction industry since 1884. Key to the organization’s success is not only its focus on high quality engineering and its forward-thinking workforce, but its ability to manage complexity in a clear, concise, and data-driven way. As part of the organization’s strategic initiative to become even more data-driven in the way it estimates and manages projects, conceptual data models were built to create an overview of critical key data assets. Data architecture diagrams resonated well with key stakeholders who were well accustomed to driving success based on architectural diagrams, and these models were a key driver for the future data strategy for the organization. Join this webinar to learn more about Kiewit’s path to success through business-focused data models.
