RICHMOND, VIRGINIA (PRWEB) NOVEMBER 05, 2018
Project Haystack (https://www.project-haystack.org), a 501(c) non-profit organization focused on developing common standards to streamline the interchange and interoperability of data among IoT devices, smart equipment and systems, today announced the first nine sponsors of the 2019 Haystack Connect Conference.
Community Champions are J2 Innovations and Key2Act. Platinum Sponsors are Bueno Systems, Conserve It, KMC Controls and SkyFoundry, Gold Sponsor is Lynxspring, and Media Sponsors are Automated Buildings and Memoori Research.
“Registration has been open less than one month and to already have such strong support from the Haystack community is a testament to how important this event is to everyone,” said John Petze, Executive Director of Project Haystack. “This conference encourages collaboration among attendees that can’t be found elsewhere and attendees recognize the value that brings.”
The fourth biennial Haystack Connect conference will take place May 13-15, 2019 at the Paradise Point Resort and Spa in San Diego, California. The event provides a unique, open-forum for professionals involved in automation, control and the Internet of Things to learn and share the latest technologies and techniques for connecting systems and utilizing device data in applications including intelligent buildings, energy management, remote monitoring, and other IoT devices and applications.
Haystack Connect 2019 sponsorship offers organizations the opportunity to make connections, build name recognition, brand loyalty, reach new customers, and sell products and services to a targeted audience. Most sponsorships also include complimentary exhibit space in the Haystack Connect Vendor Showcase. Opportunities to become a sponsor are still available.

About Project Haystack: Since its formation in March of 2011, the Project Haystack Organization (a 501(c) non-profit trade association) has been providing the industry with an open-source, collaborative environment to address the challenge of making data self-describing using semantic modeling, also known as data tagging. The work developed by the Project Haystack member companies and community streamlines the process of managing, presenting and analyzing the vast amount of data produced by smart devices and equipment systems. The Haystack methodology can be used with virtually any type of system and device data and is not tied to any vendor or communication protocol.

About Project Haystack
Since its formation in 2011, the Project Haystack Organization has grown tremendously providing the industry with an open-source, collaborative environment where people and companies work together to address the challenge of utilizing semantic modeling to streamline the interchange of device data among software applications. The devices that make up the Internet of Things—automation systems, metering systems, sensors and smart devices—produce tremendous amounts of data. This data is very hard to organize and use across different applications because it is stored in many different formats, has inconsistent naming conventions, and very limited data descriptors. In essence, data lacks information to describe its meaning. Without meaning, a time-consuming manual effort is required before value can be derived from the data.
To address this challenge, the Project Haystack community has defined an easy-to-use methodology to describe the meaning of data using a simple, extensible data-tagging approach and standard models for common equipment systems. The community-developed material includes detailed documentation describing the data modeling techniques, significant libraries of equipment models, and software reference implementations allowing software applications to easily consume smart device data that is marked up with “Haystack Tags”. These data descriptors allow software applications to automatically consume, interpret, analyze and present data from IoT devices, smart equipment and systems.
