Overview:

Dr. Joachim Hohmann and Ted Ritter (of Germany and U.S. respectively) are partners in surveying of FM technology use and trends.  On the date of this podcast, they presented a much longer FMCC webinar (archive available), detailing the background and implications arising from the subjects this brief interview.

What approaches can a consultant use to ensure value to a client over the life cycle of a technology? Prof. Hohmann focuses on the life cycle itself, as the hub of a project that introduces a critical technology, emphasizing that, at the present time, a technology should realize value promptly to meet a life cycle of approximately five years.  Ted Ritter outlines the technical and organizational characteristics and trends making a short a life cycle feasible and desirable: cloud computing, viewing technology as an operating expense versus a capital expense, and pushing down technology decisions to business line managers.  Despite globalization of technology, a consultant must be mindful of customs and expectations in the client’s country in guiding the Project.

Questionaire:

1. What approaches can a consultant use to ensure that a technology delivers value to a client?
2.  What evolving FM technologies show particular promise?
