Cisco, Google, Intel, Microsoft, Tridium & Yardi to Discuss the Internet of Things and Its Impact on Commercial and Corporate Real Estate at Realcomm | IBcon 2014

Realcomm Conference Group, LLC, a global leader in providing technology education and networking opportunities for the commercial, corporate, government and institutional real estate industry announced today that it has assembled industry leaders from Cisco, Google, Intel, Microsoft, Tridium and Yardi to discuss the Internet of Things (IoT). This world-class group will discuss IoT and its impact on the commercial and corporate real estate industry during the Opening General Session at Realcomm | IBcon on June 18th in Las Vegas.

“The last twelve months have seen a flurry of activity within the commercial and corporate real estate industry around the topic of IoT. Every major technology company now has an initiative surrounding this movement,” commented Jim Young, co-founder & CEO of Realcomm. “We are very excited to have gathered, for the first time anywhere in the world, these global giants to discuss IoT and its impact on our industry.”

Participating in the General Session panel discussion will be:

  • Rick Huijbregts, VP, Industry Transformation, General Manager, IoE | Smart + Connected Communities, Cisco Systems
  • Patrick Nielsen, Director, NorCal Real Estate & Workplace Services, Google
  • Rick Lisa, Group Sales Director, WW IoT Business Development, Intel
  • Darrell Smith, Director of Energy and Building Technology, Microsoft
  • Nino DiCosmo, President & General Manager, Tridium
  • Anant Yardi, President, Yardi

While similar to the machine-to-machine (M2M) initiatives of recent years, the IoT movement goes well beyond and includes both business and consumer activities, and encompasses mobile and cloud platforms. For the commercial and corporate real estate industry, this means that ultimately every device in a building could be connected to the network, sharing information with integrated information management platforms and radically changing how we operate buildings, portfolios, campuses and cities.

The BUILDING Internet of Things™ (BIoT™) is the beginning of the next chapter of the industry’s transformation. Disconnected analog processes will be replaced with highly automated systems, which will lead to more efficient (energy and operations), sustainable, engaging, safe and profitable real estate.

Realcomm | IBcon 2014: Embracing the change in business processes required to successfully implement new tools and opportunities will be the central focus of this year’s theme: Embracing Change: REThink, Innovate, Transform. The only unique differentiator remaining in the adoption of these tools by organizations are its people – the individual, the department, the company. Understanding all aspects of a company and their respective barriers to change can help accelerate the transformation of real estate organizations through the use of technology, innovation and automation. Some of the many trending topics to be showcased at the conference will include the BIoT™, IoT, the Cloud, Analytics, Mobility, Integrated Solutions, Security, Privacy, BIM, Business Continuity Planning, Organizational Transformation and Real Estate Business Process Automation.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
