The built environment and its infrastructure is not immune to this trend, and digital technologies – Building Information Modelling (BIM) and digital twins to machine learning and artificial intelligence – create enormous opportunities to improve and consolidate the design, planning, construction, operation and maintenance of physical assets. However, the new digital landscape is also marked by new risks such as data privacy, data integrity and cyber-attacks.
This report looks at some of the key issues that the new digital reality creates; how it is changing the way businesses operate; how to keep up with the rapid pace of technological change; what new skills are needed to enable organisations to make the most of digital opportunities; how to get the most out of big data, and how to ensure that your assets remain resilient and secure.
The convergence of our digital and physical worlds is not futuristic: it’s here now. Considering the implications and opportunities that this digital transformation offers is vital to set us on the right course for a prosperous and sustainable future.
