One of the biggest buzzes in the enterprise world is the transformation of most organizations to a digital business model. Google the phrase and you get 556 million references. Digital business is the creation of new business designs reached by blurring the digital and physical worlds. It is taking the current business and adding technology enhancements and new trends (sharing economy, quantified self and buildings, neighborhoods, campuses and cities) to create incredible opportunities for facility management and real estate as they utilize the power of the digital workspace.

Learn how to optimize the planning and management of facilities, whatever state they are in, during the building life cycle - not just planning-design-build for a new or remodeled building; but also operations and maintenance, space management and scheduling, lease administration, asset management and capital planning.
