Smart buildings: 

Four considerations for creating people-centered smart, digital workplaces

As digital technologies enable the creation of smart, digitally connected spaces, businesses should consider four aspects that would place people at the center of their smart buildings.

The confluence of the Internet of Things (IoT) with building operations and the future of the workplace is creating a significant opportunity for building owners, operators, and occupants to create smart, digitally connected spaces that support the people at their center. Business leaders are increasingly interested in creating a strategy for managing their buildings that reflects the digital transformation taking place throughout their business. Those that do may outpace their competitors in key areas such as employee attraction and retention, operating cost savings, and operational risk mitigation.

Smart buildings are digitally connected structures that combine optimized building and operational automation with intelligent space management to enhance the user experience, increase productivity, reduce costs, and mitigate physical and cybersecurity risks.
