Platform solution The missing piece when thinking about implementing a real estate platform model is having an IoT service integrator who takes the responsibility of both sourcing and qualifying IoT suppliers, as well as helping tenants integrate different IoT products into both their home and working environments. That is why we have proposed the following important operational questions relevant to IoT platformisation: 1. Asset management - how should IoT devices be integrated into a physical asset, whether at the building, apartment, or office level?

3. Tenant management - how should IoT services be presented to and managed by tenants, and with what support from third-party partners, if any?

2. Services management - treating IoT provisions as a ‘service layer’ of the property, which IoT ‘service’ categories are most valuable and relevant? For example, safety, health, cooking, space management, lighting, sound, energy? How should IoT-based services be managed and integrated and by who?

4. Data management - what are the key information flows associated with IoT use, how can these be managed and leveraged correctly, and otherwise integrated with a secure data development model?

In answering these questions, it will be possible for real estate owners and IoT service integrators to realise the benefits of intelligent, connected technologies in the real estate industry. The IoT works at the level of the individual, generating new and large information flows which involve significant amounts of private data. This means that IoT platform development should be evolved alongside data management capacity.
