Facilities of the future are today's challenge! Over the past few years, Facility Management has been flooded with technology systems, such as IoT, in an attempt to modernize/automate data collection. But one challenge still remains, how do we securely collect, process, and prioritize data to make REAL-TIME decisions? Are you managing your facility or are you reacting to the past? Time is always ticking, and the FUTURE is now.
Speakers: Rick Stuart - Vision Technologies, Inc., Douglas Jefferson - Singhal & Company, Inc., Michael Willette - ARCHIBUS, and David Doll - OSIsoft
Poor productivity and failure to be prepared for emergencies are two of the biggest hurdles for facilities teams. Industry insights gathered in 2017 bear this out; 86% of facilities teams are not prepared for catastrophes because their building information is incomplete, unorganized, and unavailable on mobile devices. In this QuickFire session, attendees learn that with best practices, strong implementation, and reliable technology, facilities teams improve both daily productivity and emergency responsiveness.

Speaker: John Solonynko
Today's modern building environments have become smarter. Facility assets and systems have evolved toward communicating data based on operational and nonoperational activities. Historically, they have been speaking their own language with no ability to be heard or better yet understood. If you were to ask them how they are feeling today, how would they communicate their thoughts? Better yet, how can they ask for help? Wouldn't it be great if these assets/systems could communicate what is wrong at the exact moment they are not feeling well? Imagine a "universal interpreter" that allows them to tell their side of the story…a story that personnel can interact with to help provide the correct care. Enter the age of Integrated Actionable Data.
Speaker: Greg Perry
The US Life Safety Code obligates building owners/managers, in relation to Emergency lighting and Exit signs, to ensure the safe evacuation of occupants in an emergency. Complying with Safety Code requirements can be very expensive and labor intensive, especially in large building where testing requires many labor hours spent manually inspecting every emergency light. However computerized monitoring system has been designed to enable maintenance personnel to easily maintain the emergency lighting system without having to walk through the building.
Speaker: Matt Lenuzza
Drones have enabled a new way to literally take facility management to new heights. They have now become a key sensor and component of Internet of Things (IoT) data, which facility managers are also beginning to leverage for preventive maintenance. Join this QuickFire to hear how Infor CloudSuite Facilities Management has addressed the unique demands of FM organizations through embedded capabilities and opportunities to extend the breadth of the application with integrated technologies like drones.

The same trends that are ushering in disruption throughout all industries - connectivity, customer-centricity, and generational preferences - are shaping the definition of what makes a building automation system project successful in today's market.
Speakers: Kurt Gokbudak
Building Automation using Internet of Things (IoT) technology is being accepted by facility managers at a rapid rate. These highly flexible systems provide local and remote access to HVAC and other building controls at a much lower cost than traditional building automation systems. This session will explore IoT BAS in both cloud and local network configurations, and the network security implications with each deployment solution.
Speaker: Jerry Drew
In this session we will share what sets the most effective facilities managers apart from their peers.
We will provide real life examples of what we've learned from top Facilities Management teams from improving day-to-day operations to optimizing internal and contractor performance.
Speaker: Priyanka Kalia
Cost effective, fast, and durable alternative solutions to costly water mitigation repairs in the building envelope and roof. Water intrusion and mitigation repairs cost owners staggering amounts of money each year, but they don't have to. Alternative solutions using silicone may provide better value by supplying decades of benefits at a fraction of the cost.
Speaker: Carl Ward
Would it be safer if you could make voltage measurements without requiring access to metallic contact points? Well, with the new T6 Electrical Tester from Fluke now you can! Fluke Engineers have developed a new technology called FieldSense which allows you to make voltage measurements safer, easier and faster! All without needing access to metallic contact point. Stop by and let us explain this new technology to you and take part in a live demonstration!
Speaker: Sean Silvey
