1.Commercial Real Estate in 2020 - with Stuart Appley, CBRE

November 5, 2020

Welcome to the Okast! For our very first episode, we sat down with Stuart Appley, Managing Director at CBRE to discuss commercial real estate in the age of COVID, how 2020 has affected tech readiness, the future of work-from-home (or work-from-anywhere), prescriptive AI and shadow IT.

"Data has always been looking backwards - and that’s good, but it doesn’t give insights into what we should be doing now. AI has so much value in both predictive and prescriptive: what might happen, and what are the steps you should take. This can augment the way we work by making us smarter, faster and more efficient."

 

"There’s more progress for digital transformation in commercial real estate in 2020 than the last five years combined."
