It is difficult to choose which technological developments are the most relevant in shaping the future of the Facilities Management Industry. Key considerations are to reduce costs and improving productivity whilst at the same time boosting sustainability and carbon impact. Software solutions that will ensure healthy building and infrastructure operations but are not effective unless deployed correctly. Here are the top trends that we think will transform the Facilities Management Industry.
IoT, or the Internet of Things, is the collection and exchange of data between physical devices connected via internet protocol; more simply put, it refers to connecting things (machinery, sensors) to the internet.
Machine Learning and Predictive Analytics
Using AI to monitor physical assets and gather intelligence makes it easier to predict the performance lifecycle for an asset before its performance is affected or before the asset fails. This can help facility management teams perform preventive maintenance more effectively and address potential issues before they become problems.
With the proliferation of the Internet of Things comes a requirement for more innovative analytics. Enter Big Data. The advanced analytics with Big Data allows facility managers to gain meaningful takeaways from the information constantly being collected from machinery.
Mobile technology has significantly impacted the enterprise industry, leading to improved communication, on-site access to computing functionality, and accurate data recording. With a software solution that Facility Managers can use smartphones and tablets, inspectors, technicians, and facility managers can bring their software with them in the palm of their hand, wherever their work takes them.
