“BYO BMS – The opportunities and challenges to the future of building management and CAFM systems”


For many years building management systems have been closed, expensive and rigid in their design both in back of house systems and client side. Attempts to integrate with Facilities Management and other systems has been difficult and retrofitting upgrades costly.  With the new trends in open source and mobility, the future of the traditional BMS infrastructure is being tested. This presentation will look at the future trends not only in building management systems but also in how home automation is becoming more affordable and open with the Internet of Things. These changes though also raise a number of concerns for users and stakeholders in the built environment. The future will be interesting and Facility Managers need to be at the forefront of changes in technology and the role they will need to play and advice they will give.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Present trends in the Building Automation System (BMS) and Computer Aided Facility Management (CAFM) systems
  2. Identify limitations to current system architecture and effects on Facilities Management (FM)
  3. Discuss trends in the Internet of Things (IOT) and how this is effecting built environment
  4. Highlight future trends and hypothesise what trends will succeed and what the implications for FM’s will be
