Introduction to Data Modeling, Haystack Tagging and the Benefits

30 Minutes with Lynxspring Webinar Series.

There is no question that data is impacting the building automation, energy management, and smart buildings markets. The data produced by equipment, systems, and smart devices now has more potential value than the devices themselves.

However, with all the data now available at our fingertips, it turns out that it’s one thing to have access to data; it’s another to make it useful and actionable. And, the primary barrier to using the data from diverse devices and systems is knowing what it means. This problem is not unique to our industry.

The concept of tagging is one of the primary approaches that has gained acceptance. The challenge in our domain (building systems) is that device data are stored in many different formats, communicated via numerous protocols, have inconsistent non-standard naming conventions, and have very limited descriptors to enable us to understand meaning without direct human knowledge of the device producing the data. Ideally we want data to be self-describing. Without that, a time consuming manual effort is required before data can be used effectively to generate value.

This session is being presented by Marc Petock of Lynxspring and John Petze of SkyFoundry who are also Board of Directors of Project Haystack and are very involved with data modeling and tagging.
