Control Solutions, Inc

This month's focus is on what is the best way to get our real time data from the field to the cloud. Continuously Connected Open Information is the theme of our 12th consecutive year of providing free education sessions at AHR Expo, see our sneak preview. It seems that this topic is on everyone's mind as we see that we are the industry most likely to provide the connection of real time data to the cloud. Lots of great articles speaking to this as everyone is trying to address how to best get information to cloud-based services.

September 2010Open Information Connections

Our September theme "Open Information Connections" starts with Nirosha's pull quote from his article "Open"   ‘Open’ is the most fundamental key word that has driven the BAS industry over the last decade and will continue to drive it in the future. But does not end there, as this word "open" which was originally used to refer to open protocols has become the way that all information must be shared and connected.

Nino's article From the Silo to Open Collaborative Facility Internetworks makes this comment - Today we have to anticipate a new kind of network in the facility - The Facility Network. That particular network has to be developed before the building automation subsystems.

Anto joins in with A Rose and this comment - The truth is that IT is changing many other things, and it’s this combination of changes that will ultimately dramatically change the BAS industry. The driver is not IT, the driver is energy, and the way forward is enabled by IT.

You can sense my frustration when the open information connection chain is broken in my rant about when politics prevent open in this article; Does Owning the Meters Make You Smarter?

These are just a few examples - please read all our articles.
