Session Name: NextGen Buildings at Scale – Do We Have Enough SKILLED PROFESSIONALS to Execute?
Location: LVH Ballroom F
Date: 6/19/2014
Time: 3:00PM
Description: There has been much talk about jumping the chasm as it relates to smart, connected, high-performance, intelligent buildings. New, high profile case studies have emerged that suggest we could be moving from early adopter to early majority. The big questions that arise now are: Do we have the skill set on the supply side to implement and support smart buildings at scale? Where will the new expertise come from? This session will also explore whether it will be traditional controls integrators, major suppliers, IT companies, managed service providers or others who will take responsibility for large, multiple asset, multiple application deployments.
  • Do we have enough skilled professionals to implement this next generation of smart buildings?
  • Where will this next generation of smart building engineers come from?
  • What skills does this new job description require; BAS, IT, Facilities, Energy or others?
