Triple Play is a weekly NJBIZ feature that asks top executives in New Jersey to talk about three things related to their industry.
Mike Mullin is president of Totowa-based Integrated Business Systems, which develops and supports high-quality property management and accounting software.
We asked Mike for the three biggest technology “stories” for the commercial real estate industry — and others — to watch in 2015.
Data security: Following a wave of data breaches, from Home Depot to Sony, security issues — especially around advancements that enhance the safe storage of corporate and client information — will garner high attention.
Mobile: As mobile platforms continue to evolve, professionals are focused on getting up from their desks and out into the world. The good news is that the tech industry gets this, and is working hard to provide tools that make it possible.
The cloud: The biggest challenge here is getting people to understand what the cloud really is all about, and how it facilitates transacting business. This is particularly true for real estate and accounting — realms where tech adoption tends to be relatively slow.
