Beyond the Proof-of-Concept: How Nokia Rolled Out Smart Buildings

Almost every corporate real estate leader is doing some sort of smart building trial to understand how to exploit the ROI promised by the technology. But the step from trial to full operations is steep. Join this session where Nokia shares how it accomplished a full smart building roll out to its large sites across Europe. The session focuses on challenges rarely discussed in vendors' sale pitches. Nokia will share the hidden expenses of a full smart building solution over multiple years and how it learned to expose those costs at the evaluation phase before an expensive and unsustainable solution was chosen.  Discover how Nokia's CRE aligned with IT on an effective rollout approach because a wide-scale smart building solution cannot be deployed without IT support. Frequently overlooked steps needed to set-up and maintain a solution will be explained so a realistic plan can be created.

Key Takeaways:

  • Gain insights into the three pitfalls in moving from a Smart Building pilot to a full deployment (hidden expenses, unanticipated activities, and under-engaged IT).
  • Explain ways to avoid these pitfalls by using business cases, service life-cycle planning, and enterprise stakeholder engagement techniques.
  • Distinguish between a pilot deployment vs a full operational deployment.
