Watch: Breaking down the Digital Twins trend in FM
In Part 5 of the Future of FM Tech series, brought to you in association with Facilio, facilities management Middle East explores a rising FM digital trend called 'digital twins'.
fmME editor Nikhil Pereira meets Roger Woodward, a global real estate strategist and former MD of Tridium, to learn more about digital twins and how the concept can benefit Middle East facility management operations.
The increase in the amount of data has led to the need of data scientists in the real estate sector. Ali Al Suwaidi revealed that Dubai’s major tourist attraction Global Village hired data scientists to make sense of all the data that’s being collected by the myriad of sensors in the theme park.
Woodward, however, says it’s not that much of a technical issue anymore. It all depends on CRE owners and landlords to buy in to the technology and make the investment.
