January Theme -  Happy New "Era"

No it is not a spelling mistake, we wish you a Happy New Year, and we also
wish you a "Happy New Era"  We are rapidly entering a new Era in building automation that questions all we have done before. An era denotes clearly defined periods of time that significant change occurs.

Our industry is rapidly being drawn into this new Era where the what and how of our industry is being exposed and questioned.  The connection communities that we are part of, new feature rich products with new methods of providing their information to these connections, and daily evolving web services presented on several flavours of displays, with interaction with Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD) are all creating this new Era.

We need to decide how we will be part of this new era. We need to successfully defend our actions of the past or change because the era we are moving into will change us or replace us if we do not change.  Think of the plight of line based telephones, faxes, and non-internet ready TV. Those are examples of era change. Now imagine the new era we are now in where the anywhere analyzed visualizations of our environment must completely utilize today's cloud tools and BYOD thinking.

It will be an exciting year for sure; enjoy your journey in the new era.

As always this new issue is a nest of great articles, columns, reviews, new products, interviews and of course the steady stream of news depicting our rapidly evolution and journey in the new era.
