Executive Thought Leadership - View From the Top for Commercial Real Estate
Last year was an interesting year for the commercial real estate technology industry — mergers and acquisitions, new startups and evolving technology —- it all contributed to the changing landscape. The challenges that our CIOs face grow exponentially each year. At one time, the CIO was only concerned with issues like e-mail and property management but today's CIO has to deal with a host of new entrants like social, mobile, analytics and cloud. While still wrapping their arms around the most recent wave of changes, they get hit from a different side with new technologies in the form of Cyber, IoT, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Autonomous Vehicles and the many others that are beginning to make their way into our industry. With all this change happening so fast and the increasing need to understand the business, how is today’s CIO expected to keep up? This cutting-edge discussion will review the last 6 months and the next 6 months of the real estate technology industry to better understanding both the challenges and opportunities.
