CEMEX has announced that it will be joining a global initiative to develop OpenBuilt, a new platform designed to securely connect fragmented construction industry supply chains. Through OpenBuilt, the participating companies aim to offer new digital solutions to help innovate and drive more efficient, sustainable, and safer construction projects.

CEMEX, EDIN Network, AS Backe, Sol Services, and Element will form a cross-industry ecosystem that will work together with IBM, Red Hat and Cobuilder, to develop OpenBuilt. The platform will be developed on the Red Hat OpenShift hybrid cloud platform and run on the IBM Cloud.

OpenBuilt will allow companies across the global building industry to securely connect their current technology platforms and digital solutions to partners, suppliers, or subcontractors in their supply chain via a single integration hub. The platform will improve communication and securely exchange data across the supply chain. Companies will have access to technology providers' latest applications and services to expand their digital platforms without complex, bespoke software development.

"OpenBuilt is a strategic initiative that will help integrate the construction value chain by increasing productivity, innovation, and collaboration," said Fernando A. Gonzalez, CEO of CEMEX. "At CEMEX, we are constantly seeking to provide a superior experience to our customers through the innovative use of digital technologies."

As a pioneer in the construction industry's digital transformation, CEMEX has been looking for opportunities to maximise productivity and efficiency through the CEMEX Go Developer Centre. It is a platform that allows customers to integrate directly to its systems and interact via APIs to provide a better customer experience by optimising internal processes and reducing operating costs. By joining forces with OpenBuilt, CEMEX aims to strengthen its digital strategy, boost innovation, and accelerate the industry's ongoing digital transformation.
