Realcomm | IBcon 2017 Digie Award Finalists Announced!
Realcomm has been presenting the "Digie" Awards (short for Commercial Real Estate Digital Innovation Awards) since 1999 to recognize those outstanding companies, real estate projects, technologies as well as the people who have gone “above and beyond” to positively impact our industry through the intelligent application of technology, automation and innovation.
Commercial, corporate, government and institutional real estate involve an inordinate amount of information, systems and business processes to operate the business. This data intensive, manual, mostly disconnected environment provides the perfect opportunity to radically transform how we do our business. For this reason, we continue to recognize those who are leading the charge for a more efficient, effective and profitable industry.
In 2012, we created separate award categories for Realcomm and IBcon to more clearly address the difference between automating real estate business processes and creating intelligent building systems, buildings, portfolios and cities.
This year's Realcomm Digie Award categories are:
Best Use of Automation
This award is given to those companies in the following categories who have applied an extraordinary level of automation, technology and innovation to their business processes:
- Property|Facility Management
- Commercial Services
- Commercial Real Estate
- Corporate Real Estate
- Real Estate Investment Management
This award is given to two companies who’ve introduced new products to the market that strive to re-engineer our very manual and disparate industry through the creation of innovative automation solutions.

Mining the Opportunities for Data Integrations - 4/5/2018
2017 generated a lot of focus on the topic of data and application integration, which could be one of the most important topics for commercial real estate technologists today. We've barely scratched the surface potential for exposing valuable business intelligence derived from integration and analysis of newly combined data sets, both public as well as proprietary. To facilitate these complex integrations, a host of new tools such as Integration Platforms as a Service (IPaaS) are being widely deployed. Also, many organizations are experimenting with a host of various API strategies. The question now is how can we affect these integrations while reducing the complexity? How are they driving value?
