Data analytics is powering a revolution in the performance of the built environment. Organizations that harness this potential will have a significant advantage. To succeed in a rapidly changing market, design will need to begin with data-driven insights and evolve with real-time learning. Predictability and agility will become the new standard.

By 2025, one-half of the world’s data will be IoT data. Over 25% will be real-time data. The average number of digital interactions per day for every connected person will increase from 800 to nearly 4,800.
