Oldcastle Infrastructure Named a Winner in the Ventana Research 15th Annual Digital Leadership Awards

Oldcastle Infrastructure, a CRH company, and the Atlanta-based industry leader in engineered building materials solutions, has been awarded the top prize in the Data category of the Ventana Research 15th Annual Digital Leadership Awards.

The winning body of work from Oldcastle Infrastructure centered around becoming a data-driven company. With data siloed across so many systems, bringing it together was a significant challenge. The solution was a rebuilding by the Oldcastle Infrastructure team of the foundation of the Data and Analytics platform, which improved technical capabilities and effectively opened the data flood gates.

The Digital Leadership Awards highlight technology leaders across business and IT and spotlight individuals and organizations that have utilized and championed modernization and transformation across their people, processes, information, and technology sectors to grow their business and industry market potential. The Awards span 10 areas of expertise.

The Data category of the Awards was judged on case studies and additional information provided by Oldcastle Infrastructure to evaluate and recognize the organization and technology that best exemplifies leadership in data, and related technologies that support data, and to determine the impact and performance that resulted from the use of technology.

“We’re honored by this recognition in that it acknowledges work accomplished by a fantastic team of people company-wide,” said Nick Heigerick, senior manager, advanced analytics for Oldcastle Infrastructure.
