As a professional in the commercial real-estate sector, you are probably surrounded by new technologies and solutions. No doubt the changing scenario is driving your curiosity about how to best utilize the emerging disruptors in this competitive market. What is the significance of enterprise-scale IoT and AI-driven platforms, as a catalyst to this much needed change?
The world is now moving towards the point where “technology” and “data” are being added to the list of basic necessities in life. And threading the right message and leading the movement from the forefront is quite imperative. The NYC Real Estate Tech Week focuses on leveraging Technology and Data in Real Estate and Property ecosystem.
Let’s attempt to decipher these trends.
A big part of what has been shaping a modern industry is the access to data, and putting it to use. You are probably aware of just how massive amounts of information generated by building automation and management systems are. It is not likely to surprise you that the future of commercial real estate can be significantly altered in terms of workforce efficiency, asset lifecycle, and sustainability, using data that is already available yet inaccessible today.
So, Here’s a quick guide to plan your way around NYC RE Tech 2019
#1 Creating a data and tech-centric RE ecosystem
Operational data as a resource – most industries have reaped the benefits of data-driven operational efficiency. RE is catching close to it. Building infra has systems from multiple manufacturers and proprietary protocols but now the possibility of true system-wide transparency is here.
The real deal is building owners now have the opportunity to make data-driven decisions on operations & maintenance by centrally connecting diverse building systems a/c portfolio onto a unified data platform and feeding that information to facilities workflows. Succinctly, the concept of “Smart Buildings” will be taking the world by storm, by not just flocking together data but also by paving the right way forward to make strategic decisions on real-time circumstances involving workforce, mechanized assets, sustainability, the tenant experience, and more.
