Facilities Management (FM) is receiving increasing attention as the efficient operation buildings grows in importance both for economic and environmental reasons. The multi-disciplinary nature of FM requires a plethora of different tools to be brought together. Therefore, the integration of information underlying FM tools is a crucial aspect for the effectiveness of FM as whole, which has been a source of concern of research and industry alike. Yet, despite these efforts, information integration in FM still faces a number of limitations which, in our view, hinder the development of FM itself. In this talk we will overview the main challenges regarding information integration in this important field and discuss how to tackle them using state-of-the-art data integration techniques.
