2018 was an extraordinary year of advancement in digital real estate standards driving business. This was lead by OSCRE International — a collaboration of organizations and individuals focused on the development and implementation of real estate technology standards. IKINDI CEO Fouad Habboud serves as Chairman of OSCRE International.
2018 Highlights include:
Real estate standards underwent a major renovation, moving to an integrated data model approach that includes 90 use cases addressing six core real estate functions. This expansion improves ease of use for implementation, enabling organizations to achieve greater consistency and transparency of the data that drives decision making and better outcomes.
The OSCRE Academy continued expansion, completing the Data Governance Certificate Series, and launched the Digital Competency Certificate Program in September.
A Blockchain workshop was held in October and included presentations from three companies that are active in building blockchain projects and provided a broad perspective on the power of this emerging technology.
OSCRE’s Center for Innovation and Leadership launched the Council of 100 with a gathering in New York City in October. Participation in this group will be limited to industry leaders in 100 organizations. The initial focus is on building a digital ecosystem for real estate.
