Innovations in Comfort, Efficiency, and Safety Solutions.
Project Haystack Announces Educational Webinar
The webinar will be presented at 11AM ET, on Tue Nov 12, 2013.
John Petze, C.E.M.,
One of the key
challenges in utilizing data to drive efficiency improvements is the
effort involved in integrating data from a wide range of sources that
utilize different formats.
Modern building automations systems, meters and other smart devices produce tremendous amount of data, but this data is still hard to utilize because it is stored in many different formats, and lacks information to describe the meaning of the data. Just imagine trying to interpret a graph with no legend to tell you what the different data items mean. Without data descriptors external applications can’t readily utilize device data.
Project Haystack (www.project-haystack.org) was founded specifically to address this challenge and make it easier for software applications to consume, analyze and present building system data. Project Haystack is an open source initiative to develop “tagging” conventions and taxonomies for building equipment and operational data. The community-based effort defines standardized data models for sites, equipment, and the data points related to energy, HVAC, lighting, and other environmental systems. A simple REST API is defined to facilitate exchange of Haystack data over HTTP.
As part of our ongoing effort to help industry professionals understand project-haystack, how it can be used to address the data definition challenge, and how to participate in the open source effort, the Haystack community has announced an educational webinar.
The webinar will be presented at 11AM ET, on Tue Nov 12, 2013. The webinar will include a variety of speakers presenting examples showing how Haystack data modeling helps reduce project costs and streamline data presentation, analytics and reporting.
If you are working with Haystack and feel you can help convey the importance and benefits of moving to Haystack data modeling techniques there is still an opportunity to join the webinar as a presenter. If you are interested in helping to educate the community by joining us as a speaker please send an abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org
