Smart Buildings & the Digitalisation of the Workplace

Thursday, 14 November, 2019 @ 18:00 - 20:30 GMT

Event Navigation

Hosted by IWFM & Microsoft

In 2018 IWFM published a report, Embracing Technology to Move FM Forward. It highlighted a lack of awareness and expertise around emerging technologies; perhaps that’s to be expected. But it also highlighted that currently FM’s are focused on the tools that can make managing the building easier and were less switched on to how smart building technology can enable better work. Are they in danger of experiencing a digital marginalisation or could they hold the key to a digital reinvention of the profession?

A year on, and in partnership with global tech giant Microsoft, a second edition of this report will investigate the art of the possible and over the course of 2020 fresh research will explore how the profession can navigate the digitisation of workplace and facilities management and the opportunities and challenges that it presents.

This event will form the start of that work. Hearing from IWFM and Microsoft, along with perspectives from suppliers to, and occupiers of, workplaces, attendees will be able to hear about the latest innovations, the ethical challenges, practical implications and challenge the current thinking.
