nHaystack Coming from one Direction, OSCRE, and the Real Estate Industry, are Coming from the Other!

OSCRE We are just getting to know and realize the enormous benefits nHaystack has to offer and the prodigious efforts being made by the nHaystack Community. Project Haystack is an open source initiative to develop tagging conventions and taxonomies for building equipment and operational data. Looks like there’s an equally serious initiative with a different perspective rising from within the Real Estate Industry to implement its own information standard to deal with the challenges of information exchange.

OSCRE International, Ltd. is a membership-based, not-for-profit consortium, committed to enabling people and organizations in the real estate industry to collect and analyze data more effectively through the development of a standardized and automated electronic information exchange.

Implementing OSCRE Standards transforms the way information is captured, stored, shared, and analyzed more accurately, and seamlessly, saving your organization time and money.
