BOSTON, Feb. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Manhattan Software, the world leader in real estate and facility management software, announced today the launch of The Manhattan Big Data and Analytics Playbook. This Playbook is designed to make the senior management of real estate and facility management organizations aware of new opportunities that are creating a revolution in the global world of business and government. Manhattan based this initiative on the "7 V's of Big Data:" volume, velocity, variety, variability, veracity, visualization and value, as well as the Nexus of Forces that explain the technological convergence of cloud computing, information, mobility and social media.
"As the world leader in IWMS and CAFM technology, Manhattan Software is in the best position to present this industry-changing Playbook for educating real estate and facility management professionals in how big data and analytics will affect the kind of complex problem solving they face daily in managing their portfolios," said Craig Gillespie, CEO, Manhattan Software Americas. "We started focusing on big data and analytics last year when I invited Tom Davenport, the guru on this topic, to speak to the real estate leadership of our customer base at our yearly Executive Summit at Harvard. Now I have appointed Nancy Johnson Sanquist, IFMA Fellow, and John Serri, PhD, to lead the effort for Manhattan this year."
The early ideas for the Playbook were revealed at the 2012 CoreNet Global Fall Summit and in the latest edition of THE LEADER magazine. It will be augmented by an educational session at IFMA's Facility Fusion in April, in magazine articles in FMJ and RealcommEDGE magazines, and at events including Tradeline, the 2013 Manhattan User Conference in Las Vegas in May, the Manhattan Executive Summit in September, as well as in company sponsored webinars, newsletter and videos.
