We have heard a lot in recent years about so-called “big data.” Having spent my career doing research and creating products using data, I was intrigued to learn more about how big data might be used for commercial real estate.
Recently, our CEO, Jeff Finn, attended CRE // Tech Intersect in NYC. He took a few notes and has been kind enough to share them with us here.
The past few years have been extremely productive in the CRE tech industry. Overall access to data has improved dramatically, thanks to advances leading to increased capacity and lower costs. Cloud computing and better storage technologies are helping to make data gathering and analysis faster than ever before.
