Digitization and Data Glossary

Posted on
June 23, 2021

Industry Challenge

There is an absence of a comprehensive glossary that considers all digitized element and processes for the built environment.  This lack of clarity poses a gap in digital scope in procuring, designing, building, and operating facilities.

Proposed Solution

The Digitization and Data Think Tank will form a Task Group representing various stakeholder across Canada and internationally to create a Digitization and Data Glossary.
