SinclairI understand that Lynxspring is hosting the 2017 Lynxspring Exchange and Technology Showcase October 1-3. Tell me about it?

Petock:  In 2015 we held the inaugural Lynxspring Exchange. With the continued advances in building automation systems, the new generation of IoT devices and equipment, and the new ways value is being driven today; we decided to hold it again this year. The Exchange is a 2-1/2-day educational conference and technology showcase that will bring together the industry ecosystem of professionals and practitioners, and our partners of system integrators, OEMs and end users to exchange, discuss, collaborate, and learn about today’s systems and solutions for operating facilities smarter, safer, securely, efficiently and at peak performance levels.

SinclairWhere is it taking place?

Petock:  The Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch. If you have never been to Scottsdale, this is the perfect time of year to go. It is wonderful.  Being at this magnificent resort will just add to the Lynxspring Exchange experience.

SinclairCan you share some of the sessions and subjects that will be discussed?

Petock:  The content and sessions are still coming together. There are several industry presenters scheduled to present along with folks from Lynxspring. We will have sessions that reflect the business side, as well as the technology side. As of now, some of the business sessions include presentations on the Edge; OT and IT, Filling the Gap; IoT; Traditional Building Automation – What’s Driving the Future; Securing our Facilities in Today’s Cyber World; Intelligent Buildings in the Digital Age, Discussion and Perspectives from Consultants; and what’s going on with the Energy Climate. On the technical side, some sessions address Cabling for the Smart Building; Niagara Framework®, Onyxx® and JENEsys® Edge™ Best Practices; the IoT Incubator; one we are calling “Think Inside the Box,” and much more.  In addition, we have Keynote Speakers who will address IoT, the Evolution and Disruption in Our Industry and answer several questions we all need to know.

SinclairDuring our conversation, you mentioned a “Track within a Track”? Tell me about this?

Petock:  Sure. Data and analytics have changed the way companies in every industry do business and manage performance, including ours. Access to this data, combined with analytics, has opened new opportunities for the creation of new value. As such, we felt it important to have several sessions and content that address these subjects. So, we created a “Track within a Track,” where we have put together a variety of content about data and analytics. The “Track within a Track” on Data and Analytics is being sponsored by Connexx Energy, SkyFoundry and Project Haystack.
