Commercial Real Estate, Technology, Blockchain and AIhashtag

Angelica Krystle Donati (12 years - entrepreneur, writer).  THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT #CONTECH - "Autodesk purchased construction tech startup PlanGrid for $875M, but ConTech has had much less attention than #PropTech. More than 50% of PropTech seeks to solve sales and leasing issues, while only 16% focuses on construction.  There is a big gap to be filled and huge gains to be made by bringing technological innovation to construction.  Researching ConTech, and its startups, yeilded innovative solutions and the untapped opportunities."  (#2019predictions #CRE #Technology #Analysis #Business #Data #Research #Expansion #Investment #Startup; simple ConTech facts follow; edited - Lnkd.in/eZa8sXJ):
  • "IS IT #PROPTECH?  There is much construction and management overlap, so ConTech's not siloed - it's used to innovate the way we plan, design and build structures, as well as the manufacture and installation of their components.  ConTech's Building Information Modeling (#BIM) models derived from BIM are PropTech, such as BIM-built building management efficiently managed using AI and AR form BIM's accurate 3D models and centralized data."   #CRE #Technology #Analysis #Business #Data #Research #Startup (edited; previous Lnkd.in/eFMiBGB 
  • "THE TECH? -  NOT just the cute 3D-printed house seen on the 'Net since 2017 - part of ConTech, and perhaps bigger in the future.  The biggest gains are currently in the #management of construction processes, such as #digitalizing construction #workflow #processes.  #Startups are utilizing #AI for workflow management, deploying process #sensors or providing a platform for #data.  #Drones and #MachineLearning do job-site #analysis, and #Robots are tentatively being used.  #Wearable tech is used for worksite safety, and see last post re #BIM.   More aplications and startups in [her] future articles."  Lnkd.in/e8NQ3jZ
  • "#MARKET?  The 2017 global construction industry was worth ~$17T, but >$24T by 2021, though it's very much behind the innovation curve, especially construction methods.  RELATIVELY SMALL.  It's a complex business. Many stakeholders - owners, designers, engineers, contractors, subcontractors, site labor, operators, regulators, planners, local government, the public....  It needs to last for decades and beyond.  Management platforms are an easier sell than new construction methods, which if fail, can have devastating consequences. 
  • "OPPORTUNITY.  The possible gains in this mostly-untouched sector are enormous. But it will require buy-offs by myriad conservative stakeholders and #regulators.  #Investment will be large and lead times long, though returns can be enormous."  Lnkd.in/eSY2diC

Diego Lo Giudice  (33 years - analyst, researcher) was quoted in #AI FOR FINANCE- EASY TO IMAGINE, HARD TO DO:
  • "LINES OF AI aren't easy to draw.  Traditional #MachineLearning using algorithms on structured data is NOT AI, whereas #technology to make sense of unstructured #data is a step toward AI.  
  • "There are TACTICAL and TRANSFORMATIVE parts to AI, and now would be a good time for enterprises to get into it. It can crack some hard problems, requires skills and some learning, but experimenting with this technology and putting it on the side of business - it can do new things."
  • "To CFOs - AI's useful if you scale down expectations and start small, applying it initially to small problems. "he technology is maturing every day. The #research and #algorithms are improving." #Analysis #Business #Startup (edited)   Lnkd.in/eHKdSEg
Kirk Borne (37 years - data, science, education).   REAL POWER OF #AI. "It feels like we’re constantly being asked to submit personal data: download an app, redeem that discount, play a video game, [get a price, download content, etc].  AI can be misunderstood if we define it only by what’s seen in media – cute droid sidekicks, facial-recognition software, [robot cop, droids replacing humans, etc]. AI is really much more, or much less (depending on how you look at these representations)." (editor intro) #Technology #MachineLearning #DeepLearning #Analysis #Business #DataScience #Research; edited - Lnkd.in/eqyGMfi):
  • "FUTURE OF MARKETING.  The massive data collections being accumulated by nearly every industry and organization fuel powerful #MachineLearning algorithms and to enable game-changing AI, most visibly apparent to us as consumers of products and services.  Providers of goods and services use data, machine learning, and AI to understand us and to get our attention in the crowded noisy marketplace, to detect our consumer sentiment about those products and services, to acquire us as customers, to solidify our loyalty to their products, to predict our behaviors, and to amplify the effectiveness and ROI of their marketing investments." Lnkd.in/eaUFRjX 
  • "MORE ON MARKETING (one lens), which is already personalized to individual consumers, specifically through product recommendation engines, BUT much more data-informed than ever before.  Marketing must rely on #MachineIntelligence to carry most of that load, through #DataAnalytics, #MachineLearning and AI.  But, AI must NOT be considered as 'artificial' intelligence, but as 'augmented,' 'assisted,' and 'actionable' intelligence." Lnkd.in/e5vjGfx 
  • "CLARITY PREVENTS MISUNDERSTANDINGS.  One of the roadblocks to implementing AI is its different meanings.  It may bring to mind #Chatbots, #Robots, #NaturalLanguage Processing, #SentimentAnalysis, #PredictiveAnalytics, #PatternRecognition, #AVs, #RPA, #SmartCities, etc, etc. AI developers must explain clearly what they are doing, how and why.  #MachineLearning and AI helps understand data, but having the most #data is not the only advantage.  Deriving value from the data makes the advantage."  Lnkd.in/eQVUqu5
  • "JOB LOSS?  AI and #MachineLearning will enrich #Marketing, making it more personalized, productive and powerful. Tomorrow’s marketer’s work will be more machine-assisted, #data-informed and #insights-driven, providing:  the personal #touch, the subject matter #expertise, the guardianship over proper #algorithm behaviors, the stopgap against #bias creeping into algorithms, and the #historical perspective that is key to most successful marketing.  Other industries will require humans in the loop too.
  • "CHANGE and ENHANCE JOB OPPORTUNITIES  - we expect to see these new roles and the increasing role of AI in such fields as healthcare, manufacturing, customer service, financial services, retail, cybersecurity as well as marketing."

EDR noted this CREtech interview:  #BLOCKCHAIN & #TOKENIZATION in #CRE.  "Only $1.4 trillion of $217 trillion in global developed real estate assets was exchanged in 2017.  Abstract Tokenization is solving this lack of liquidity to increase value and convenience. In addition to the liquidity challenge, a number of traditional CRE primary issuance, record keeping and investor servicing processes are currently not as efficient as they can be, with portions often still being done manually."  Lnkd.in/e8GcPSv

Yves Mulkers (17 years - high-tech consultant, entrepreneur). NEXT-GEN DIGITAL #PLATFORMS DRIVE LONG-AWAITED BUSINESS AGILITY.  Extensive article - worth a full read!  INTRO:  "The platform concept is either a TECHNOLOGY platform that plays the role of enabler, or an ECONOMIC one that causes market disruption and establishes new business models, bringing major benefits to the consumers.  5 major business areas experiencing digital transformation through platforms: Business models, Business strategy, Workforce, Customer interactions & Business operations."  Bravo!

Commercial Real Estate and Business


Sam McNeil (37 years - finance, capital). 2018: Texas beats Iran, Iraq, Lnkd.in/eSBPpJx, which led me to "OVER RUSSIA AND SAUDI ARABIA, AMERICA HAS RECLAIMED ITS THRONE atop the oil world. For the first time since 1973, the United States is the world's largest producer of crude oil, thanks to the US shale oil boom. American oil output has more than doubled over the past decade." (edited) #Oil&Gas #Energy #Economics #Investment #Technology (edited - Lnkd.in/eSvApG2)

Don Catalano (30 years - real estate). "TOP #CRE TRENDS, 2019: The #industrial real estate boom will continue; A new-brick-and-mortar #retail boom will begin; The adoption of CRE #tech will grow at a fast pace; #Millennials will be migrating to suburbia; #Costs for #tenant improvements and building #maintenance likely to rise." #2019predictions #AI #Blockchain #Investment (edited - Lnkd.in/eN3xjBZ)

Commercial Real Estate, Technology, Blockchain and AIhashtag

Nathan VonGunten (17 years - real estate) noted Ian Ritter (21 years - reporter/editor). "#BLOCKCHAIN’S #CRE FUTURE.  Among the main attractions for investors to blockchain are security, transparency and liquidity of capital. These deals are undertaken on a secure digital platform that can only be accessed by individuals with a network key. This leaves less room for misuse or manipulation of a transaction’s data." #Technology #Analysis #Business Lnkd.in/esm-pma via Lnkd.in/e2XtgJU

Kirk Borne (37 years - data, science, education) noted Forrester Research.  "2019 AI TRENDS; NO PAIN, NO GAIN with #ENTERPRISE #AI - expect to see major changes in how organizations use AI, the rise of new #DigitalWorkers’ and increased competition for #data professionals with AI skills" (#2019predictions #Technology #Analysis #Business #DataScience #Research #Expansion #Investment #SmallBusiness #Startup; edited - Lnkd.in/ezN_q_n):
  • "Data doldrums continue to drag down AI - we predict continued investments in quality information architecture (#IA) as firms quickly realize that irrational exuberance for AI adoption must be equally met with solid efforts on an AI-worthy data environment." Lnkd.in/ecCs2Ut
  • "USE AI in AI TALENT RACE.  67% of AI decision makers struggle with finding and acquiring AI talent; 83 percent struggle with retention [see list].  Traditional recruiting practices fail, causing companies to seek out new approaches and tools, such as applying AI to recruitment.”  Lnkd.in/eFYNEvk 
  • "AI and #ROBOTS TO CREATE DIGITAL WORKERS in 40%+ ENTERPRISES.  Robotic Process Automation (#RPA) momentum started well before AI piqued interest in enterprises, but has been considered separate.  We believe that an RPA+AI technology innovation chain will turbocharge innovation efforts, in addition to combining AI's #MachineLearning and text #Analytics with RPA features to drive greater value for digital workers."  Lnkd.in/eE-Zgiq 
  • "#EXPLAINABILITY and #AUDITABILITY.  Some #MachineLanguage algorithms yield transparent and easily-understandable models; others, most notably neural networks, are opaque.  Regulations will spur interest in explainability in 2019 from both enterprises as well as vendors. Business users will increasingly demand it from their #DataScience counterparts to trust the models that impact customers.”  Lnkd.in/edwgnqy 
  • "10% of FIRMS LEVERAGING AI WILL BRING HUMAN EXPERTISE BACK into the LOOP.  “While #MachineLearning is exceptional at analyzing data, it lacks human reasoning capabilities.  Enterprise AI mavericks will rediscover knowledge engineering and digital decisioning platforms to extract and encode inferencing rules and build knowledge graphs from their expert employees and customers. #Data plus wisdom can dramatically accelerate the development of AI applications.”  Lnkd.in/ek_pZi2 

Angelica Krystle Donati (12 years - entrepreneur, writer).  #STARTUPS and #VCs PREDICT 2019 #PROPTECH - "2018 marked a fundamental shift in the sentiment for PropTech amongst #CRE players - implementation on course to happen in 2019 (#2019predictions #Technology #AI #Blockchain #Analysis #Business #Data #Research #Expansion #Investment; edited - Lnkd.in/eFkU978 and Lnkd.in/eRBEmcv): 
  • STARTUPS.  'The real change has been in terms of the mindset' -  District Technologies;
  • PropTech discovered - 'can only be expected to escalate' - Datscha;
  • 'Autonomous vehicles (#AV), micro transit, and other last-mile transport modes will transform the real estate and retail industries, redefine urban boundaries, upend pricing dynamics and alter our definition of prime real estate' - PlaceMake.io;
  • 'Implementation will continue to grow in 2019, with more companies formalizing their strategy and starting to really integrate new technologies into their workflows' - Proda Ltd
  • 'Data and automation are expected to generate the most change' - KPMG Global PropTech survey;
  • 'Working on robotics and drone programs to execute site scans more precisely and efficiently' - Dalux;
  • AI will become increasingly foundational, transformative, and pervasive, and recommends that PropTech firms and their clients adopt an ‘AI first’ attitude' - Andrew Ng;
  • "We will have to look to 2019 and beyond to witness the real estate industry really putting its money where its mouth is in terms of implementation."   Lnkd.in/eFWhgdW  and Lnkd.in/eemrh7n 
  • "2018 A GOOD YEAR and AS EXPECTATED? 2018 was a banner year for investments and milestone exits. Standouts include WeWork, Reonomy, OpenDoor, Compass and Oyo. Awareness of PropTech as one of the fastest growing tech sub-sectors increasing. [See quotes from VCs]" Lnkd.in/eqMd8iM
  • "BIGGEST SUCCESSES 2018.  Investors cited booming PropTech landscape, with large financing / M&A transactions led by CoStar, WeWork, JLL, MRI, Silverlake, etc.  There's strong interest in adopting new technologies that enhance the experience of owners, operators and residents, with a particular focus on #SmartApartment tech.
  • "BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENTS 2018.  #Blockchain was expected to deliver more than just #CryptoCurrencies. The prevailing gap between tech and VC ecosystems, and ‘traditional’ real estate world was and will be challenging, but with tremendous value-add potential for investors, managers, intermediaries and occupiers.  Multifamily still has a slow sales and adoption cycles, with #RentTech concentrated in a few verticals." Lnkd.in/gREr9bG 
  • "PROPTECH INVESTMENT LANDSCAPE, 2019?  All concur that 2019 will bring continued PropTech investment growth, with more deals done and more capital deployed, with real estate incumbents creating proprietary investment funds to deploy their digital strategy.  Highlights:
  • PropTech-focused funds;
  • More money entering the market, so top founders can pick their investors;
  • PropTech winners will accelerate due to fundraising and debt/equity capital accessibility advantages;
  • More US strategic investment in British and European proptech startups;
  • We’re currently at the top of the economic and venture cycle; so if economy turns, their high valuations will come down to their natural levels."  Lnkd.in/eN7ghBA
  •  
  • "SECTORS to WATCH and TYPES of TECH?  
  • #FacilityManagement needs a champion;
  • Sensors and smart buildings will start to show some winners;
  • #ConstructionTech - so much room for improvement in operations, materials, safety, financing, etc;
  • #RentTech will show an increase in the number and quality of entrepreneurs yielding more high-quality companies and ground-breaking products;
  • #HomeAutomation and amenities services can provide multifamily owners and managers with simple solutions to complicated tenant experience problems;
  • RentTech and PropTech will soon need an integrated solution;
  • There's a clear trend towards B2B soutions across the real estate value chain - institutional and CRE investment, development and management - with more emerging around planning, project management and  construction tech;
  • There still are plenty of opportunities for new startups to help millennials get on the housing ladder and own physical assets, with an intersection of #FinTech and PropTech."  Lnkd.in/ePSXzGp
  •  
  • "HOPES FOR 2019?  
  • To see Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Alphabet (#FAANG) at Proptech conferences; 
  • The industry will cross the $20 billion VC mark;
  • The frequently-laggard US real estate industry continues to invest in innovation and to take queues from peers in Europe and Asia;
  • Continue to see the multifamily industry adopt new technologies;
  • Quality deal flow, growing portfolio performance and driving strategic initiatives;
  • Real estate investors and asset managers across Europe will continue to embrace PropTech through more direct investments and strategic partnerships;
  • The sector to continue to mature with later-stage raises and exits;
  • 2019 will be another banner year for PropTech ... can’t wait!" Lnkd.in/eDK3QEU

Dinesh Acharya (17 years - real estate) of JLL. "REAL-LIFE DESIGN LESSONS from VIRTUAL REALITY (#VR). Leaps in #technology have brought us closer to science-fiction films, like the upcoming, 'Ready Player One' (RP1, circa 2045) where most people spend their waking lives in a VR universe. Better that we design places from the user perspective, fundamentally change our thinking about 'place' as a service or experience, rather than a container and contents. Key themes from 'RP1' that have real world implications (#CRE #AI #Analysis #Business #Research #Expansion #Investment #Startup; edited - Lnkd.in/eqaJG6n):
  • "Experience is an #ECOSYSTEM - manage user experiences, services and rewards TOGETHER to make the #UX much more compelling." Lnkd.in/esaiahM
    • "THINK PHYSICAL and #DIGITAL.  The digital experience is often an afterthought when we design physical places, but increasingly, digital and physical must be integrated to create a seamless experience.  For example, via an app, ordering a coffee-to-go and paying for it, then picking it up with no queue and a personal greeting from the barista feels great - better still if loyalty is rewarded with bonuses or discounts [automatically]." Lnkd.in/eaJKMpH
    • "TAILORED JOURNEYS.  In RP1, people can be whoever they want to be – appearance, ethnicity, gender or species, and they can ‘choose their own adventure.'  Understanding the unique needs of individuals and tailoring journeys is the first step when conceiving experiences or services that people will love."  Lnkd.in/eCKwyAf
    • "CO-CREATION.  It’s important we work closely with users to co-create experiences from the collective-user perspective rather than a single-institutional point of view.  It’s about really listening to the voice of the customer and exploring and designing proposed concepts together with them."  Lnkd.in/eBVAZG5 
    • "UNPLUG and RECONNECT.  Online cannot be the only place where people find a sense of belonging. We must encourage people to take time to maintain meaningful relationships and participate in memorable real-world experiences.  Good design must facilitate these experiences."  Lnkd.in/eDtDVVK

    Sam McNeil (37 years - finance, capital). #IPO NUMBERS UP, VALUES DOWN - YoY Proposed Deals are at least 50% up, in #Consumer #Services, #Energy and #Financial Sectors; Consumer #Goods are even and REIT down 50%.  However, those up have about the same valuation, and those even or down are <25% YoY.

    Don Catalano (30 years - real estate). GREEN OFFICE-SPACE ADVANTAGES. "#GoingGreen can reduce costs, improve employee morale and boost the public perception of your company. Small changes to your workplace have big impact (#2019 #CRE #Technology #Business #PropTech #Research #Investment #Startup; edited) Lnkd.in/eaucDMZ):
    • "#GREENERY. Living plants improve indoor air quality by taking in exhaled CO2 and releasing O2. Plants help to make offices feel more inviting and bring a bit of the outdoors indoors. [Add dense deciduous plants on sunny outsides - cool in summer, let sun through in winter;
    • #ENERGYSTAR. Look for office equipment models that are ES certified, which meet EPA standards for energy efficiency - good for the planet and reduce utility costs;
    • #NATURAL LIGHT. Remove heavy blinds that prevent light from entering, and consider putting work areas near windows - reduces eyestrain and improves employee #morale." Lnkd.in/eHCt8Su 
    • "SMARTEN UP YOUR THERMOSTAT. Switch to a smart system that automatically adjusts performance during off hours to maintain optimal working conditions and reduce energy costs;
    • UPGRADE YOUR LIGHTING. LED fixtures consume less energy, give off less heat, and can burn for thousands of hours, saving utility costs, cooling and bulbs. [Shield LEDs to cut glare and use max natual lighting.];
    • ENCOURAGE ALTERNATE TRANSPORTATION. Incentivized use of public transportation, car pooling, [ride sharing] and biking, helps your eco footprint. Build facilities to accommodate bikes [and drop offs]." Lnkd.in/esSrcRv
    • "GO PAPERLESS WHERE POSSIBLE for record keeping and documentation - saves in supplies over time. Paperless systems tend to streamline processes, which can increase productivity;
    • CHANGE CLOSING PROCEDURES. At the end of the day, shutdown computers, turn off all office equipment and switch off [non-essential] lights - cuts down on utility costs;
    • ISSUE CHALLENGES. [Collaboratively set] green goals, then issue a challenge to your departments - the best to comply receives a prize such as catered lunch or gift cards." Lnkd.in/dB4Bd4H

    Diego Lo Giudice  (33 years - analyst, researcher).  OMNICHANNEL FUNCTIONAL TESTING AUTOMATION (#OFTA) SPEEDS #SOFTWARE DELIVERY and #DIGITAL BUSINESS.   Forresters 7/2018 Wave™ report says, "Nearly 75% of global services tell us they are investigating or implementing a digital transformation. (#Technology #Analysis #Business #Data #Research; edited - Lnkd.in/eQ3fuUp):
    • TOP 15 LEADERS:  Conformiq, Eggplant, Experitest, IBM, Micro Focus Silk, Micro Focus UFT, LogiGear, Microsoft, Parasoft, Perfecto, Ranorex, Sauce Labs, SmartBear Software, Tricentis and Worksoft.
    • APPLICATION TESTING is right in the middle of this whirlwind. So becoming a successful digital Agile-plus-DevOps shop means that software testers must work with development teams that: 
    • Design, build, and test quickly and iteratively; 
    • Differentiate with user experience (#UX) per Forrester's #CX (quality) Index™ - effectiveness, ease, and emotion;
    • Have technical quality as a primary objective." Lnkd.in/eqMd8iM
    • PRESSURE INCREASING ON TESTERS.  "Since 2013, testing practices and tools have become integral to development. 68% of Agile teams include testers in their product teams, 51% are dedicated full-time to one project/ product, and 27% use test-driven development (TDD).  Short- and longterm challenges for testers lie ahead:
    • Test automation is still underpenetrated;
    • Developer-tester skills are hard to find;
    • Customer experience (#CX) testing is not for the faint of heart." Lnkd.in/eHTAzhY
    • TESTING TOOL MARKETS are evolving to address new and existing challenges. Forrester evaluations include OPEN SOURCE, test design automating SELECTIVELY rather than comprehensively, as well as recent TRENDS [report references many products and companies]:
    • "MOBILE-FIRST BUT NOT MOBILE-ONLY - design and develop innovative mobile applications and then retrofit them for largerscreen technologies.
    • "MAINFRAME TESTING - not dead due to distributed and cloud computing - now part of the pragmatic cloud. With some renewed attention to mainframe because of back-end application modernization investments, enterprises often require continuous delivery pipelines and testing to be on mainframe too.
    • "#AI and #MachineLearning better test and automate, using natural language /text understanding, voice, video and image recognition, super-efficient pattern matching and the ability to make predictions. Services organizations are leveraging AI and ML to make better decisions and optimize automation, and new ones are making testing more autonomous." Lnkd.in/ev6ZXyv 

    Douglas Karr (20+ years - marketing).  "2019 VIDEO TRENDS (summarized - Lnkd.in/ey6T4Nj via Llnkd.in/enGwf5w):
    • Short-lived #video content on #socialmedia;
    • Focus on #streaming live video;
    • Square-shaped and vertically shot videos;
    • Influencer video #marketing;
    • Closed captions or subtitles in videos;
    • The growth of usage of explainer videos;
    • 360-degree videos and #VR videos gaining momentum;
    • Personalized videos for #sales and marketing;
    • Video production getting wallet-friendly."
