The CIO and the PM: The New Dynamic Duo

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. Learn More

Telecom 2011: Empowering Access to the Cloud

It started in the 1990s with high speed internet and smart buildings. Fast forward to 2011. The volume of data coming in and out of buildings has grown exponentially. More and more tenants require 100 Mbps of bandwidth (or higher!) for cloud computing and complex data applications -- and building owners are dependent on this technology for internal communications as well as system monitoring and controls. This session will discuss current and future requirements for bandwidth, as well as present the highlights and implications of a recent BOMA member survey regarding telecommunications needs and solutions.

Analyzing Building Operations: What Do We Do With All This Data?

The market has become flooded with software solutions and dashboards that provide real-time monitoring of building operations. But how much data is too much data?

This was perhaps the best, business-related webcast I have ever attended. It was well run and went off without a hitch -- but more important, the quality and value of the webcast was excellent. The presenters spoke to real issues in a candid and informative way. It wasn't fluff or a sales pitch. We are extremely happy to have been a sponsor and believe it reflects very well on our company.

I attended the webcast on “Advanced Lighting Solutions” and found it to be very enlightening. The presenters used various visuals to demonstrate that a thoroughly integrated approach should include much more than simply a lamp replacement project – and economic benefits were clearly presented. I have attended several other CoR Advisors™ webcasts and found them all to be engaging and informative.
