Technology permits designers to display their thought processes and decision-making options faster and more transparently than ever before. This is one conclusion of the DesignIntelligence Technology Survey released in June.

The research tracks trends in the use of such tech tools as project collaboration Web sites, CAD software, building information modeling, office productivity, and social networking as well as IT spending in design firms.

{techsurvey, align=left}The research is published in the May/June issue of DesignIntelligence. In addition to the survey results, the issue contains in-depth articles from industry leaders such as James P. Cramer, Peter Beck, and others on topics including strategic opportunities enhanced by technology, how technology is reshaping the AEC industry, digital design’s ability to empower innovation and environmental response, and the challenge of return on investment.
