Modern buildings run on software. But in order for buildings to take advantage of all the benefits that this software can provide, the data that buildings create need to be put to good use. By connecting digital systems, building software can provide the basis for continuous improvement of almost every building function, making them more efficient, more useful, and more profitable.
From HVAC control to accounting to management processes, data can form the basis for better decisions. Once data is centralized, segmented, and standardized, machine learning algorithms can find patterns and make adjustments that humans would not be able to do alone. Training, testing, and deploying software capable of high level analysis of building functions will require expertise that many management teams do not yet have.
Join experts Sandy Jacolow, CTO of Empire State Realty Trust and Tim Curran, Executive Managing Director of Building Engines, in a detailed exploration of how data can and should be used to make buildings better. Data architecture, systems integration, machine learning techniques, and cyber security best practices will all be discussed in this in-depth webinar for building managers and owners. Have your own questions answered by the pros. See you there.
