“Smart Cites, Technology Innovation & Their Effect on China’s Facilities”

Paul Doherty, President, the digit group inc.

As our world quickly emerges as large, urban environments, facility management professionals are challenged with integrating their buildings and workplaces into the urban fabric of Smart City initiatives. The stewardship of the digital DNA of China’s facilities through data-centric tools like CAD, BIM and IWMS is no longer valued just for the individual Smart Building project. The extended value is in the interconnection and interoperability of this data in the context of Smart Campuses, Smart Neighborhoods and Smart Cities, all driven by technology innovation. Join us for a discussion that will define Smart Cities, identify Smart Buildings and provide you with best practices, lessons learned and a framework strategy for your organization..

Learning Objectives:

  1. Construct a solution framework to address the holistic opportunities of an interconnected world as a best practice for your organization.
  2. Identify emerging technologies, standards and processes for your organization.
  3. Understand the effects of culture and technology on your work processes and workplace.
  4. Implement tools and services that provide practical, measured success.
