Terminations are the not-so-happy endings to construction contracts. A termination occurs when the owner decides to stop a project before it is complete.

Get Insights from Data Faster with Cloud Computing

State and local governments have access to a wealth of data, yet many agencies are still starved for valuable insights. Gaining insights from data can be a lengthy process – it requires a thorough understanding of and speedy access to data, the ability to analyze data and a method to present findings for further consumption. This process has been coined as ‘time to insight.’ As more agencies seek to leverage data, many are aiming to reduce the time this process takes.
