The Future of Building Operations Management
Technology continues to shape how tasks are completed; it’s important for the effectiveness of what may have always worked to be tested and improved. The managing of building operations is a great example. Growth is best facilitated when the right technology is used to make these processes more efficient. ‘Facility managers still need to understand those building systems, but they also need to know how to take advantage of the many available connected devices to improve their buildings’ performance.’
Predictions state that there will be over 34 billion operational connected devices globally by the year 2020. This means that if you have yet to embrace the capacity and capabilities of technology for your business (or your life in general), there’s no greater time than the present.
Building Operations Management
Adrian Thomas of reminetwork.com noted the growth of IoT enabled buildings and what that means for the future. “The difference today is that the IoT allows building managers to connect more devices and gain enhanced insight at a much lower cost. Facilities managers can now quickly and easily install wireless thermal sensors onto their main electrical bus bars, giving them early warning of a potential overheat condition in their electrical system. They can also monitor the status of their stand-by power system, their data centre uptime, control lighting room by room, know when their elevators need servicing before they go down, monitor their access control and security cameras, all within a single platform.” (source: reminetwork.com)
