Todd Takes

1. First thought: make sure you are fully leveraging your data. I know I may be starting to sound like a broken record, but it is so important to take advantage of the data and resources that you have available. An example of this is digital twins, especially with the recent announcement of Autodesk Tandem. 70% of the cost of a building comes from running the building. A digital twin allows owners to have critical information that they can leverage throughout the building lifecycle to start reducing costs. 

2. Having a single source of truth for all your data is also critical. Autodesk is creating the unified platform to start bridging the gap between teams, users, and the data. There are a lot of possibilities under a single source of truth to build out further integrations. Bottom line is, you should be able to use the data you have when you want and how you want. 

3. Finally, when implementing new software, it is important to take time up front to really plan out the implementation. Do not be afraid to consult experts to optimize things according to your needs. I loved the Ikea example as a warning call to avoid.
