At last month’s VERGE conference, a clear message stood out: Data has the power to transform the future of sustainability.
Data, however, is only as transformative as the tools that make it actionable. If data is to define the future of sustainability, then the future of information technology will define how facilities become radically efficient (i.e. true smart buildings).
IDC has projected that social business, big data analytics, cloud computing and mobility are coming together in an unprecedented way to create solutions with entirely new business value. Indeed these pillars of future information technology will enable intelligent industries, solutions and, most importantly, innovation. These are the characteristics of intelligent IT tools that can transform facilities into smart buildings and directly align with the VERGE message of data-enabled market transformation.
