The CIO and the PM: The New Dynamic Duo
With the integration of IT into building management and operations, the new building team includes not only the property manager, but now also the CIO. The role of the CIO in commercial real estate is quickly evolving from overseeing the fundamental network operations of the organization to developing the technology strategy for the operations of the buildings. The CIO and the IT team play a critical role in building management, as they are best equipped to automate building systems, obtain data from building controls and devices, and advise on how to maximize building operational efficiency. This session will discuss the importance of the CIO and the PM as a critical new partnership.

You’ll learn:
  • How IT can contribute to all aspects of real estate operations
  • New technologies and applications that require new IT skill sets and experience
  • The benefits of moving your IT department from the back room to the Boardroom
  • How to effectively integrate your IT team into building management and operations
