CARLSBAD, CA, February 04, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The tech space has been inundated recently with the new catchphrase describing the next generation of the Internet, the IoT (Internet of Things), and its close cousin, the IoE (Internet of Everything). Realcomm Conference Group, LLC, a global leader in providing technology education and networking opportunities for the commercial, corporate, government and institutional real estate, announced today that it will feature BIoT - BUILDINGS Internet of Things [TM] at Realcomm | IBcon 2014, to be held on June 18-19 in Las Vegas. To clarify and further define how the IoT is going to impact the commercial, corporate, government and institutional real estate industries, Realcomm has add a "B" to the acronym for BUILDINGS.
"We are excited about embracing this new concept of the IoT by adding our 'B' (BUILDINGS) as technology and automation continues to be an integral part of the commercial, corporate, government and institutional real estate transformation," said Jim Young, co-founder and CEO of Realcomm. "If you were to ask industry insiders what the predecessor to the IoT was, most would likely answer M2M (Machine to Machine), which did not catch on as the IoT seems to have. And while this catchy phrase may seem new, the concept of connecting devices and managing buildings over the Internet goes back more than a decade, it's just finally more affordable and becoming part of mainstream conversations." (Realcomm 2002 article, Connecting Buildings and Processes to the Net)
The BIoT [TM] discussion will focus on all the components in a building that can be connected to the network (the Internet) for the purpose of creating operational efficiencies, reducing energy consumption, improving occupant experiences (DAS to security), achieving sustainability goals, and effectively optimizing financial performance.
This new way of thinking about real estate, overlaying an IT network, connecting all traditionally unconnected equipment, monitoring, analyzing and controlling business processes (integrating with ERPs) without much human intervention, will lead to much better managed assets, which translates to happier occupants and improved finances. This concept is in alignment with the conference theme: Embracing Change: REThink, Innovate, Transform. Embracing the change in business processes required to successfully implement new tools and opportunities will be an important discussion this year. The only unique differentiator remaining in the adoption of these invaluable tools by organizations are its people--the individual, the department, the company. Understanding all aspects of a company and discerning their respective barriers to change can help accelerate the transformation of real estate organizations through the use of technology, innovation and automation.
