Cutting through the noise

Nick Wright, Digital Strategist, looks at how to inject actionable insight into your real estate strategy

We’ve all wished for the benefit of hindsight at some stage, and no more so than when markets are challenging and our own business outlook is uncertain.

But the world has changed: the internet has bought us closer than ever to the insights we need to power our decisions and look to the future with certainty.

The problem

Information is everywhere. At the current pace, some 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created each day, but this is fast accelerating with the internet of things – so much so that some 90% of the world’s data has been generated in the last two years alone.

This deluge of insight can make it harder than ever to navigate real estate. And for businesses with sizeable assets operating across geographies, it can be challenging to make sense of the insights at their disposal and use these to determine the right strategies for the future.

CBRE's solution: Discovery

CBRE created Discovery to give clients clarity and control in a data-heavy world. The dynamic business intelligence platform collates detailed insight spanning the breadth of clients’ portfolios then uses cutting-edge systems and processes to helps them integrate, visualise and analyse this - and build an accurate picture of their business.

Discovery not only gives users real-time insight into their own customers, but a unified view of their own performance in the context of internal KPIs and the wider market. The solution has become an indispensable source of insight that helps banks, investors, real estate and land developers drive tactical decisions and successful long-term strategies.
