Thursday, October 19, 2017 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM
Venue: George R. Brown Convention Center
Room: 351E

This panel discussion is based on selected chapters from The Facility Manager's Guide to Information Technology: An International Collaboration between the IFMA Technology Community and GEFMA. The panel leaders are part of the co-authorship team that contributed to the informational text, which presents a current, impartial and comprehensive look at how information technology (IT) and facility management (FM) have become inextricably bound in the modern workplace. Exploring the evolving relationship between IT and FM, this book is a resource that can be used by students and novice facility managers, as well experienced FMs. The authors intended the book to be used as both a teaching guide and reference tool for educational organizations and corporations alike.
