Schneider Electric is holding two sessions at the Facilities Show 2019 to show how IT can meet the new needs of Facility Managers.
Lars Henneke, Global Commercial VP of Digital Energy Services at Schneider Electric will hold a seminar on ‘Tangible approaches towards smart buildings’ at 12:50pm on Tuesday alongside Erik Jasper, Director of Strategy and Innovation at Planon.
On Thursday at 11:55am, Jimmy Sohal, Sales Director for the Facilities Management channel, presentation is titled ‘smart workplaces - people, technology and the built environment’ and will look how facility managers can future-proof their investments.
Based on their combined experience and expertise, the two will discuss:
“Over 60% of the buildings that will be standing in 2050 have already been built. With the growth of smart buildings, it is no surprise that facility managers today are under increasing pressure to be more IT-savvy. This shift poses several interesting challenges, but primarily on how to deal with mountains of big data,” said Lars Henneke, Global Commercial VP of Digital Energy Services at Schneider Electric.
“At the Facilities Show, we want to explain the benefits of breaking down silos and connecting all of a building’s most important functions. IoT technology and control software and applications can improve occupant experience, reduce costs and increase output. The event is a great opportunity for us to communicate Schneider Electric’s vision of what a smart building should be” he concluded.
