Smart Buildings: A Holistic View for Building Owners & Operators: IoT, Data and Technology Enabled Environments

February 13, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am


Construction and real estate companies have long been incorporating smart building technology to minimize building costs, optimize asset performance, and hit energy efficiency requirements. However, the most forward-thinking players understand that IoT-generated information creates value in ways that disrupt traditional commercial real estate business models.

Insights gleaned from building systems technology provides these companies with opportunities to differentiate their services to the market and create new sources of revenue. However, as interconnectivity between building systems grows, so too does the volume and detail of the data captured, and therefore, the threat of cyber-attack.

Commercial real estate companies will need to reconcile the opportunities smart building technologies provide while addressing the significant risks if they are to remain competitive in the coming years. This session will help owners and operators think about technology-enabled environments in a holistic manner, while providing a broader discussion of what the future of building data utilization looks like.
