To begin automating a building, all roads lead to a systems integrator. In most cases, the integrator is the organization that will align industry solutions with the goals and objectives of the client. The single building, single vendor solution can no longer meet the needs of the market. In a world where IT is quickly encroaching on traditional building automation, yesterday’s strategies no longer work.

Today, we are managing three different generations of smart building technologies: 1) Past (closed, proprietary, single system); 2) Current (open and attempting to retrieve data and functionality of the older, more closed systems); and 3) Future (IP-enabled, intuitive GUIs, analytics, edge devices pumping data directly to the cloud). But all these new developments require more involvement with IT technologies.

The SBIS will address the major issues impacting today’s smart building integrator, including 1) defining the next generation Master Systems Integrator; 2) interfacing with IT departments; 3) the impact of the IoT; 4) providing integrated, interoperable solutions; 5) the technical skills gap; 6) aligning with business objectives, and more.

This half-day Summit and workshop will be open to system integrators and consultants from Building Automation, HVAC, IT, AV, Multimedia, Digital Signage, Lighting, Security and Industrial Controls who are ready to go to the next level in intelligent building design and delivery. SBIS is a by-invitation event for the integrator community.

If you’re a traditional integrator looking to expand your service offerings to meet the future needs of today’s open architected, interoperable, integrated, IT centric intelligent buildings, portfolios, campuses and cities, you won’t want to miss this dynamic Summit.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
* An Integrator’s Perspective on BUILDING NETWORKS – Converged, Separate, Other?
* The Smart Buildings SKILLS SHORTAGE – Finding, Training and Maintaining a Capable Team
* Dealing with a Changing Industry – Defining the “MASTER SYSTEMS INTEGRATOR”
* A New Addition to the Smart Building Strategy – OCCUPANT EXPERIENCE Now a High Priority
* Building CYBERSECURITY – What is the System Integrator’s Role in This Growing Threat?
