As the world becomes more urban and our cities more crowded, building skyscrapers that are smarter, safer, and energy-efficient is becoming increasingly critical.
Achieving that goal would be virtually impossible without the cloud, which operates at every stage of a skyscraper’s existence: by allowing real-time, collaborative design from remote teams, by keeping construction crews connected and in-the-know, and by allowing the final building to track its own maintenance needs and energy usage. Massively capable networks of remote servers make “everything as a service” a reality in building infrastructure, letting seemingly rigid structures become responsive and adaptive to unique needs and situations.
Technological marvels like skyscrapers demand huge amounts of resources, time, energy, and data. The cloud is meeting each of those demands.
