The Creation of Anywhere Integration and the general anywhereness ( yes that is now a word in Wikipedia ) of our industry will be our challenge for 2011. I am very pleased with our January issue's diversity of articles and interviews that depict our anywhereness. As you can see from our past issues 2010 has been all about building automation connecting to everything while using the internet cloud as the medium. This has evolved to Anywhere Integration of our information and services and will set the theme for 2011.  As you can see by the varied subject matter of the below articles, columns, interviews and reviews the scope of Anywhere Integration is amazing.

December......... Interrogating Information 4 Intelligent Integration

Our cover picture is a slice of a skyfoundry screen that show how interrogated information can be intelligently integrated and clearly presented. The last few months have seen me lost in the clouds and their connections so I am pleased to have several industry experts help me show you how to make sense and control all of this new found data. Very pleased to have John Petze"Finding What Matters” in a sea of data

Several of our articles build on this theme such as Jim Sinopoli's Dashboards for BuildingsDashboards are meant to convey essential information quickly and clearly on one screen.

Guy Huntington shows us a new dimension in Interrogating Information in his article;
Revolutionizing Building Physical Security  Having a physical security system that easily integrates with your tenants’ identity management system, means that you can now transfer some of the liability to your tenant for creating, modifying, removing and archiving identities from the physical access system.
