From the opening of canals to the interstate highway program, infrastructure has helped the United States (US) become the global economic engine it is today. However, infrastructure has been aging over the past several decades as capital needs are being deferred and the lack of investment is challenging the ability of the US to sustain its economic prosperity.

Each segment, such as state and local governments, healthcare systems, universities, utilities, and transportation issuers, requires a different analytical approach and distinctly different data sets.
