Over the last 10 years there has been more money invested in RE Technology, CREtech , and Proptech than ever before.

Unpacking the Challenges and Opportunities - CONNECTED BUILDINGS and IoT
Date: 6/12/2019    Time: 3:40 pm - 4:20 pm    Location: Room 206
The smart building discussion has been going on for over five decades. It started first with building automation (one building, one system), then moved to open, integrated and interoperable, and now is focused on the Internet of Things (IoT) for Buildings. While there are extraordinary opportunities for energy and natural resource conservation, operational efficiencies and next generation experiences, the path to success is complex. Understanding and being involved in the creation of the macro vision of a smart building, partnering with IT and OT team members, leveraging outside resources and developing an even stronger communications channel between tenant and landlord are just some of the topics to be addressed in this segment.

Big Data and AI - Taking Property Insight to Another Level
Date: 6/12/2019    Time: 4:40 pm - 5:10 pm    Location: Room 206
Data has always been a part of the Commercial Real Estate conversation. Managing finances, leases, rent rolls, service requests and operating data are just some of the places where critical information is stored, organized and analyzed. In modern times, the ‘spreadsheet’ has been the go-to solution to ‘crunch the numbers’. Over the years we have seen heightened interest in data through conversations about data warehouses, lakes, business intelligence and now Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning. There are many great opportunities in applying advanced technologies to our Real Estate data, but this requires some thoughtful planning. This segment will focus on the future of advanced data applications for Property Management.
