The Project Haystack Organization has
published the latest issue of the organization’s community driven
magazine, Connections Magazine. A complimentary copy can be downloaded
The issue’s theme, Data. Our New Asset, reports on the latest
activities presented by the global Project Haystack members and
practitioners. This 10th issue includes contributions from Tridium, J2
Innovations Conserve It, the DLR Group, the Epsten Group, Lynxspring,
Energocentrum Plus, PADI.io, CloudBlue, and BuildingFit. Several of the
articles were written by end users including design consultants,
commissioning experts, smart building consultants, property managers
and developers – all of whom are demanding smarter, interoperable
solutions and recognize the importance of standardized data tagging.
This issue also focuses on companies that are responding by providing
Haystack-compatible products, solutions, and services.
included, are updates from Project Haystack Working Groups with
sections dedicated to Tools for Developers and Integrators, How to Get
Involved, and a curation of social media about Member Projects,
Practices and Products, and a directory of all Project Haystack
Members. The issue also includes profiles of recent new member
In addition, the 70-plus page issue includes information on the release
of a new Haystack Essentials eLearning Course sanctioned by
Project-Haystack.org and offered by Fantom Factory. Designed for anyone
new to Project Haystack, the course covers what Haystack Tags are and
provides the understanding on how to apply them to a basic site model.
Using interactive exercises, users can practice applying these tags
into example scenarios and models.
Project Haystack’s comprehensive, open standard for semantic tagging of
data, has been embraced worldwide and is playing a leading role in
making device data interoperable by providing the industry with a
standard metadata model, tools, reference implementations and
educational materials, all developed by a true open-source community.
Growing membership in the organization and continued global instances
now estimated to be over 40,000 facilities worldwide, all point to the
growth and acceptance of the Haystack standard. Facility owners,
operators, managers, and service companies recognize that a
standardized approach to semantic data modeling has been key to
overcoming the hurdles related to effectively using data produced by
the built environment.
More information along with additional resources are available on the organizations Web site, www.project-haystack.org.

The Role of Data in Achieving Smarter Buildings - and Haystack's Role in Making Data Interoperable 12:30pm to 1:00pm:
has become a critical asset for the built environment. When captured,
normalized, tagged, and analyzed, data can enable a true transformation
on how we manage and operate our facilities. Accessing and making
effective use of data from existing operational systems is a critical
element of all smart building initiatives.
increased access to data from equipment systems and a new generation of
IoT devices presents new opportunities to improve the efficiency and
sustainability of our facilities, however, having access to data is
only the first step in making meaningful use of it. Capturing the
meaning of our data and representing that meaning in a uniform way is
the key to deriving benefit from facility and equipment data.
Petze, Executive Director and Marc Petock, Executive Secretary of
Project Haystack discuss the use of semantic tagging and its key role
in making data interoperability across different systems and
applications. in determining what data is relevant, how to
standardize it, how to give it common context, how to streamline it to
unlock the data’s true value and how it enables a true transformation
on the way we manage and operate buildings. The presentation will also
provide an update on the latest work of the Project-Haystack.org.
