As advancing technology makes doing more faster a reality, all industries face the same problem. Digital transformation, the Internet of Things, AI, and machine learning are no longer experiments or curiosities – they’re a vital part of effective operational scaling.
Companies are looking ahead to ensure that they have the corporate real estate and critical infrastructure in place to allow their operations to thrive in what is often a very tough market. From a corporate real estate (CRE) and critical facilities management (FM) perspective, there are many different approaches. Behind their global offices is the need to offer digital solutions, data storage, and meet an increasing demand for big data analytics.
All require infrastructure to keep operations running efficiently and smoothly. Data centers provide the backbone. But without cabling and super-fast connectivity, these businesses would be unable to compete.
It is therefore crucial for global heads of facilities management and corporate real estate to ensure they have the right people, processes and technical infrastructure in place to maximize their organization’s ability to deliver products and services to their customers.
