With technology gaining big buzz in construction, how is your organization navigating through all the solutions in the marketplace? Whose job is it to help navigate the noisy marketplace to select the solution that is right for you? Most importantly, once you pick the right solution, whose job is it to guide implementation and adoption? Many companies create a cross-functional group to assume this charter. But there are two critical roles that must not be overlooked: the Construction Technologist and the IT Director.
Join the “Ironman of IT” Jeff Sample as he hosts Travis Voss, Construction Technologist and Director of Innovation at Mechanical, Inc. in an engaging discussion on the rising role of the construction technologist who may or may not also be your IT Director.
With a strong background in software development, Jeff has spent the past 20 years guiding companies on the transformative value of technology. His depth of IT experience in a variety of industries and his passion for outdoor adventures and Ironman competitions has made Jeff widely known as the “The Ironman of IT.” He is a popular speaker and vocal thought leader in construction, spending much of his time educating on a variety of topics to better the industry as a whole.
Travis is a recent convert to the construction industry. He has spent years in software development focusing on getting data in the hands of people who need it. This is a mindset he brings to construction now as the Technology Manager at Mechanical, Inc. His goal is to help Mechanical leverage new technologies and evangelize the concept of open data standards so project teams can share information seamlessly.
