Adnan Akbari, Senior Manager Strategic Marketing, at Siemens Industry, was genuinely excited about Advantage™ Navigator, the energy management system performance platform that Siemens featured at the IBcon 2014. Advantage™ Navigator offers a number of energy analytics that take existing Siemens technologies and services to the next level by giving Siemens customers distinct business advantages — making costs easier to predict and delivering key insights into the total energy and operational performance of their buildings — locally, or worldwide. Adnan sees the IoT Titans: Google, Microsoft, Cisco, and the others, entry into the HVAC market as a logical move, because they too, have significant technology plays to make in the building space. Siemens also announced their Platinum Sponsorship for the 2014 ControlTrends Awards.
Advantage Navigator’s customizable suite of applications helps you monitor building system performance, energy demand, and energy supply more effectively and efficiently. It provides transparency, giving your team and the Siemens experts who support you laser-sharp insight to make critical improvements. And using a central platform, you can maintain total control over a single building, a campus, or your entire portfolio.
