    In today’s world of technology, the consumer electronic market is driven by how smart your TV, wearables, thermostat and other devices of convenience can be.  Why would this not apply to HVAC equipment?  Why is the HVAC industry so slow to adopt technology that can make the entire process from buying, commissioning, servicing and retiring assets at the right time? I am here to discuss how technology is impacting the HVAC industry today and how it will be tomorrow which by the speed technology is evolving comes quicker than ever before.  We will discuss usability, analytics and why business process and applications are the real challenge in evolving while technology is purely a median to deliver value.
