This report was authored by Panduit Corp and published on June 30, 2022. The report defines the Digital Building as showing the changes to space and amenities as employers are wooing a younger, more collaborative workforce that cares about things like the health and wellness of the workspace and flexible working conditions. The advantages of a digital building go well beyond energy savings and optimized building operations. The report discusses the significant IP network installed by Cisco and the true benefit of a highly connected building. Technology has the potential to transform the operation of buildings. Connecting disparate systems and devices to an IP network allows those systems to share data on occupancy, space usage, temperature, and more, which makes buildings more responsive and efficient. This also leads to higher employee satisfaction and productivity.
