EllisDon's Digital Transformation Journey: Charting the Path for the Construction Industry
This IDC Perspective examines the transformation of EllisDon, one of Canada's leading construction and services firms. In response to the shifting priorities of sustainable and responsible business practices, EllisDon has become a leader in the digital business paradigm by transforming its guiding principle as a business that operates in a market that consumes large quantities of natural resources and is responsible for an overly large proportion of greenhouse gas emissions.
"At a fundamental level, the digital business paradigm is about the evolution of business and business operations. As a country, Canada is often associated with a conservative nature that disproportionately favors followers rather than market leaders. EllisDon is an example of a Canadian company that is using the principles of digital transformation and the IDC Digital Business Model and science-backed, data-driven insights to be a market leader in the construction and services industry," says Jim Westcott, research manager, Application Solutions at IDC Canada.
