*This post is an excerpt from New School: Becoming a Next Gen Facility Manager
You may be asking yourself, what the heck is a tech stack? For facilities, a tech stack is the technology infrastructure or eco-system used to run a building. It can be anything from building automation, to security systems to electronic facility records. In this section, we examine the categories of technology that are important for buildings and what the Next Generation Facility Managers view as critical in the stack.
As part of our Next-Gen Facility Manager series, we are getting to know some of the professionals that are moving their school district's facility management programs into the future. Our first conversation is with Joe Magliocca, Director of Facilities III at Elmira City School District in New York. Joe talks about change management practices with his staff and how technology is helping him and his staff make better decisions.
