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.

The release of Tridium’s Niagara 4.6 introduced the ability for a Niagara Supervisor to examine all the Niagara devices in the Niagara Network and pull up Entity data (tags and relations) into a new System Database. During this TridiumTalk, a high level view will be provided of the System Database feature including setup and configuration of the system indexer.
Learn how Entity data in remote stations will be available at the Supervisor upon executing a System Index. System level hierarchies and search can also utilize this remote Entity data. Finally, learn about the enhancements to Niagara Virtual components, including new virtual schedule HTML5 views. This new view could eliminate the need for master schedules in the Supervisor.
Be sure to register today to attend the TridiumTalk on how to use the System Database feature using the latest version of Niagara.
Date: November 8, 2018 Time: 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time (New York, UTC-05:00)
Learn from Rick Weisensale and software engineer Scott Hoye how to get started with System Database. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions during a live Q&A.
If you have any questions, please contact your Tridium account manager or Niagara partner. We look forward to you benefiting from the new Niagara 4.6 features!
Richmond, VA – October 22, 2018 – Project Haystack (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, has announced the dates and venue for their fourth, biennial Haystack Connect Conference.
Haystack Connect 2019 will take place May 13-15, 2019 at Paradise Point Resort & Spa in San Diego, California. Haystack Connect 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.
Attendees include the community of Project Haystack supporters encompassing engineers, developers and other professionals from leading technology suppliers, system integrators and service firms who come together to further advance the state-of-the-art of managing, presenting and analyzing the vast amounts of data generated by today’s IoT devices, smart equipment and systems.
The two-and-a-half-day long conference includes keynote presentations, a vendor exhibition hall, and a packed schedule of technical sessions covering data acquisition, communications, protocol translation, data visualization, analytics, data semantics, modeling and security—all critical technologies essential to using operational data to drive improved performance.

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.
