The intelligent buildings marketplace is at a tipping point, according to a recent Navigant report. This year will see a significant increase in customer adoption of digital technologies and applications such as Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence and building energy management solutions.

To help building owners and operators, IT and facilities managers, commercial real estate managers and consultants stay abreast of trends and learn best practices for deploying intelligent building infrastructure, CommScope is hosting “The Evolution of the Workplace” workshops in four U.S. cities in August 2017. These single-day events, available to registered guests at no cost, will include presentations by intelligent building experts from CommScope, Navigant Research, IBM and JLL.

“The technology evolution in commercial buildings is astounding and includes applications for energy efficiency, space utilization, enterprise mobility, data analytics and the overall in-building experience,” said Ed Solis, director, Enterprise Strategy, CommScope. “To make sense of so much change requires partnerships, advisors and collaborators, which is why CommScope is bringing together players from across the industry for these workshops.”

“The Evolution of the Workplace” will include insights from four unique perspectives of the intelligent building ecosystem:

  • Network infrastructure leader CommScope will review the latest connectivity technologies—wired and wireless—along with best practices for connectivity design to meet IoT requirements and ensure ubiquitous mobile coverage in a 5G environment.
  • International business consultancy Navigant will explore the preparation IT managers and their teams need for enabling the deployment and use of IoT applications in commercial facilities.
  • Tech giant IBM will explain how innovations in artificial intelligence (think “Watson”) are creating unimagined opportunities and challenges in building operations.
  • Commercial real estate services company JLL will address the impact these technological innovations have on building energy efficiency, workplace productivity and tenant satisfaction.

“There is a new competitive landscape and evolving business models in the intelligent buildings marketplace, as the traditional demarcation of technology offerings for facilities management have blurred,” said Casey Talon, principal research analyst, Navigant.

“Vendors who create partnerships and strategies to amplify solution offering capabilities and direction will become market leaders.”
