SinclairWhat was your thinking behind developing this product?

Petock:  Lynxspring has long believed in the importance of getting maximum  value out of data. With the increasing number and variety of equipment, sensors, devices and building systems available to connect to and the amount of data that is available from them, we have seen many data projects stall or never reach their potential because companies struggle with the complexity of the data. While data is technically available, the challenge lies in working with it across multiple applications, managing it and getting useful information out of it especially as data sets come with various formats, different naming conventions, and syntaxes. It's one thing to have access to data; it's another to make it actionable.

Reliable Controls SinclairWhere do folks go to get more information?

Petock:  Our web site www.lynxspring.com and http://shop.lynxspring.com

Sinclair:  In addition to the BACnet to Haystack Data Pump, what other Project Haystack offerings have Lynxspring developed?

Petock:  We have developed a Haystack server with Connexxion, our Cloud and Enterprise Shared Data Management Platform that uses the Project Haystack methodologies and standards and makes use of tagging and data modeling. We have also developed NodeHaystack which takes advantage of node.js and provides a fully scalable interface for anyone wishing to implement a Haystack server on their own. And there is more on the way.
