As part of its Tech Insight programme, the IRPM brought together a group of leading industry experts to discuss a range of issues around data use in the property management sector.
Featuring the opinions of MRI Software Product Manager, Rob Simmonds, ‘Information overload: where to start with data?’ is a new white paper based on this conversation. It identifies the ways in which we use data, how our understanding of data and its potential is changing, and how this is impacting the property management profession.
The paper sets out the key challenges thrown up by the rapid increase in the generation, management, and sharing of data and considers the future implications in light of building safety reform. Data-driven property provision was also discussed as a potential disrupter in our industry.
Key points are that:
- In the future, building managers will be central to the new building safety regime and data collection, storage, management, and retrieval will be central to the role.
- Disrupters are already seeing space as a digital service with data at its core and bricks and mortar as add-ons. This provides the opportunity for new data-rich and data-savvy players to enter the market.
- Agreement between the property sector and government is urgently needed to adopt good data and ethical principles that will work across the industry.
