The annual BSRIA Briefing - 13th November - will be looking at the issue of big data with the topic of Smart data, silver lining or black cloud?
The event will be held at the Brewery, in London, on Friday 13th November 2015. The main sponsor is Trend.
The event takes the form of a morning briefing followed by a luncheon with a guest speaker. It is well-established in the industry calendar drawing a wide range of attendees from all sectors, commencing at 9.00 am.
The Briefing will specifically consider how digital will look within the built environment and how it will drive operational improvement, create new value propositions for clients and new value streams for suppliers.
While not forgetting the important aspect of the changing skill sets that will be required, along with the social issues and challenges the industry may encounter – both at work and home.
Julia Evans, Chief Executive, BSRIA said: “There are many ways big data can be used to create values across industry sectors of the global economy.
“But in order to create innovation, productivity and growth as well as new modes of value capture we need to have the skills, security and knowledge to be able to use the data effectively and competitively with in the built environment for both commercial and domestic buildings.”
The lunch is at 13:00 and the after lunch speaker is Nick Hewer – this slick PR consultant was Lord Alan Sugar’s advisor on the Apprentice and then went on to present the Channel 4 show ‘Countdown’ sending ratings through the roof!
