IFSEC Global speaks to Thomas Barquin, Senior Analyst in smart buildings at global research company, Omdia, to discuss the expertise the business has to offer and the findings from its latest smart building survey report.
Q: Hi Thomas. Firstly, for those readers who may be unaware of Omdia, can you explain a little more about what you do?
I am a Senior Analyst at Omdia and currently responsible for the research and analysis of the global smart buildings market. Omdia is a global technology research powerhouse, established in 2019 following the merger of the research division of Informa Tech and the acquired IHS Markit technology research portfolio, Ovum, Tractica and Heavy Reading. Omdia connects the dots across the entire tech ecosystem to better predict and shape our clients’ business outcomes.
For example, did you know that COVID-19’s greatest impact on tech will be a more comprehensive shift to digital technologies and services? That’s the kind of insight we bring to clients.
GS Technologies Ltd (LON:GST), through its subsidiary, EMS Wiring Systems Pte. Ltd, provides services in the “Smart Building” sector. Smart Building is a diverse term that refers to the technological capabilities of buildings and other work place facilities.
