Digital transformation of capital projects

Modernizing the infrastructure, construction & engineering industry to optimize entire capital project portfolios with digital technologies.

Are your projects running over time and budget?

You’re not alone. The construction of today’s capital projects looks very similar to how it did 50 years ago. The difference is, today’s project costs twice as much. That’s in part because, despite accounting for the 13% of global gross domestic product (GDP), the construction industry ranks among the least digitally enabled. This lag has resulted in a lack of transparency across the value chain, which in turn causes a lag in productivity, and puts budgets, schedules and asset performance at risk.

So are everyone else’s

Only 25%

of capital projects come within 10% of original deadlines.

Just 31%

of them come within 10% of their cost baselines.

Over 95%

of major projects (over $1bn) are delayed or over budget.

We’re here to help fix what’s broken …

Accenture has helped clients from a wide variety of industries improve their portfolios, projects, and capital asset performance. Client success examples include:

Technology businesses struggling to reliably deliver and start-up new data centers on time and budget.

Public agencies unable to modernize transit and other infrastructure to drive regional GDP growth.

Utility companies under pressure to build new capacity in order to meet growing demand.

Manufacturers seeking to increase both the safety and remote serviceability of sites during the COVID-19 crisis.
