Realcomm and IBcon 2013 Embrace the Real Estate Technology REvolution
Conference theme announced: Embracing the Real Estate Technology REvolution – REdefining REal Estate Operations through Technology, Automation & Innovation
The transformational impact of technology has radically redefined how commercial and corporate real estate organizations operate today. Continued economic issues and financial pressures to contain costs have propelled automation into mainstream discussions. Cloud computing and increasingly powerful mobile technologies have permeated the marketplace and technology, overall, has matured and become less expensive. All of these fundamental trends have contributed to the accelerated pace technology, automation and innovation are being introduced into real estate organizations.
“We believe we are now at a critical point where the speed of change is taking place so fast that we are at the beginning stages of a REvolution - point in time where things will change so radically there will be no turning back,” said Jim Young, Co-Founder and CEO of Realcomm. “The old ways of doing business will soon be obsolete. It is no longer a function of if, but when. The technology is in place; it is now a question of how quickly each organization can change its own culture to take full advantage of this new operating paradigm.”
The other REvolution that is taking place is inside the real estate organization itself. Technology has historically been limited to the activities found in the IT department. Over the last few years, automation and innovation have crept into the activities of every department, from the receptionist to the CEO, forcing everyone to rethink how technology processes are impacting job functions. This is a REvolution!
Realcomm 2013 will showcase business solutions trends, from real-time integrated ERPs and the hottest new mobile applications and platforms, to discussions on new job titles coming up in the industry and the skillsets required to fulfill them. IBcon 2013 will feature the latest intelligent building automation trends, such as networked IB, high tech impacted sustainability, the “Building of Things” and many others.
