The Internet of Things (IoT) is shifting the facilities management paradigm. The idea of convergence between information technology and operational technology (IT/OT) systems has been the cornerstone of intelligent buildings since the market’s inception. The reality is, however, most teams responsible for IT and facilities operations and management work in isolation. These teams follow separate and distinct goals and mandates, thereby losing the opportunity to capitalize on the cross-discipline capabilities essential to creating strong IoT frameworks
Casey Talon, principal research analyst at Navigant Research, moderates a discussion with Rick Lisa, Group Sales Director, WW Internet of Things and Machine Learning at Intel and Sonu Panda, CEO, Prescriptive Data, and John Gilbert, EVP of Rudin Management, around the benefits of breaking down business unit siloes to support IT/OT integration and the successful deployment of IoT platforms in commercial buildings. The panelists present their perspectives on how organizations can realize operational and energy efficiency improvements, cost savings, and better occupancy experience by deploying intelligent building technology with the support of both IT and OT staff.
