I had a chance to meet Derek McGarry, the Head Building Performance Engineer at Abundant Power. Abundant Power out of Charlotte, North Carolina, provides solution focused services, great customer service, and profit driven outcomes so that their customers get the most value out of Analytics, and as we all know making data actionable and useful is easier said than done. After hearing what Derek has to say, I believe that Abundant Power knows how to use data to make buldings smarter. And with great smart building controls integrators like McKenney’s, Atlanta, using their product, they are keeping very good company.

Using data analytics to monitor elevators? And bringing the data through your single pane of glass frontend? Why not? In this RealComm|IBcon interview, hear how Leon Wurfel from Bueno Systems & Casey Witkowicz from Rycom are using analytics to transform smart building operations. BUENO is the Australian leader in data and information driven operational property services, offering a new approach to operations, maintenance and sustainability. Rycom Corporation is more than just a technology company. Rycom could be your biggest competitive advantage.
Here is the Audio Stream from our 4th Free Webinar in the 2017 Smart Buildings Series, sponsored by Project Haystack.
Creating Transparency From Building Analytics. This was an in-depth Q&A Webinar with James Lee CEO & President of Cimetrics. We discus Jim’s recent article “Analytics Creates Transparency” and his thoughts on why he thinks analytics is the key that the industry has been waiting for to unlock the true business value from building technologies.
In this Q&A session with Jim, we discuss The impact of building analytics and BACnet .
Analytics removes many of the complexities that we build into buildings. When implemented well, an analytics-powered building system allows owners and operators to focus on their needs; which is to provide occupants what they need.
A natural and logical way forward for our industry is to see how analytics brings value to building owners and operators, after all, they are our customers.
We are on the cusp of an industry transformation focusing on making occupants happy and content in their use of buildings, enabling building owners to see more value in what we do.

J2 Fin’s very own Scott Muench was recently featured on AutomatedBuildings.com with an article about the benefits and payoffs of tagging and data modeling.
With the amount of connected devices increasing every day, potential value is also increasing exponentially. The reality is that it takes a lot of effort or mouse clicks to derive value from the data in the connected world. J2 Innovations has been focusing their efforts on great software and more efficient workflows to unlock this potential. Click here to read more.
As a roving reporter for the Realcomm live team, I got to interview really cool people like Vladi Shunturoy from Lucid.
