Smart Buildings in 2025: What Will The Technology Ecosystem Look Like?

In 2025 newly constructed smart buildings will be designed to enhance the productivity of building users, deliver more sophisticated energy management and maximise space utilization. But what will the technology ecosystem to manage smart buildings look like? This presentation will draw on recent Verdantix research studies into building technologies to share two likely scenarios for the future development of technology ecosystems for smart buildings. In this session we will consider the role for IoT platforms, facilities optimization software, artificial intelligence, smart equipment, workplace apps, robots and other technologies. Real estate investors, property developers, facilities managers, product manufacturers and technology vendors should attend this session to get an independent perspective into the range of technologies that will infuse smart buildings of the future.
