    Globalisation has led to fast paced industrialisation which in turn has demanded the need of high technology to enhance productivity. The competitive nature of construction projects today has led to myriad explorations, experimentations and discoveries in software that have aided in making each step of construction a lot more simpler. Software today not only takes care of the design process but also supervises the monitoring and planning of projects, management of processes and the movement of key performance indices. World over Construction firms are experiencing a major enhancement in their works through technology. Whether it is the architect, engineer, builder, consultant or contractor involved in the construction fraternity, everyone has taken to technology to witness improved outputs.

    In India, construction fares as the second largest contributor to economy and has a major pull in attracting the international industry to the country. Any construction project is the outcome of collaborative efforts of a large gamut of people, diverse processes and operations. With the help of technology, the communication and interaction between these many project building steps has become distinct and faster. The construction industry heavily relies on project management which encompasses aspects like good communication networks, organised data etc. Computerisation thus has acquired an inevitable stand in the industry. For the same, courses have also been devised to help the construction professionals gauge how they can implement new software. Such courses are acquiring importance in schools too.

    It would be right to conclude that with the changing scenario of the construction industry, getting adapted to this change in technology will help in the survival and success of many. While becoming a necessity for many, Computer technology has also in turn enabled assimilation, fabrication of innovative and complex forms, leading to a change in Construction perspectives.
