The New Building Mindset
Chief Marketing & Communications Officer,
the connection of more devices and crunching more data than ever
before, we are moving towards an Edge environment. The Edge is contributing to a significant shift in the way we are
connecting, acquiring information, interacting with it, and making
decisions. It is enabling us to expand our reach to a new range of
equipment and devices to deliver operational value and relevant
outcomes. In fact, it is said by 2022 that close to 75% of all data
will need analysis and action at the Edge.
is the Edge? Simply put, it is a means to connect, collect, process
data and take action at the device level rather than in the Cloud, at
the enterprise or remote data center. It is the ability to execute
applications traditionally associated with the enterprise or middleware
at a place where we can process and analyze data closer to or at the
source itself—the device.
connectivity, computing and storage in close proximity to the devices
creating the data make it possible to analyze data in real-time,
delivering faster answers to important questions and faster action.
more devices at the Edge comes more data that has the potential to
provide enhanced insights into how we manage and operate facilities. We
cannot require that all this data be transported to a Cloud or
Enterprise before we can begin to derive value from it. Software
functions and applications need to reside at every level of the
architecture from the “Edge” (on an equipment system or in an
electrical closet)—to the building level—where data from multiple
smaller nodes can be aggregated and analyzed, to the portfolio level
where data and analysis occur at the server or cloud level.
The adoption of Edge technologies within our facilities enables us to expand to a wider variety of applications. When it comes to benefit and value delivery, the Edge delivers on speed, latency reduction, scalability, security, network bandwidth conservation, reduced operational costs, more data that has the potential to provide enhanced insights and data sovereignty.
Edge is becoming an integral part of many organizations building
operational strategies. Building owners and operators are looking for
faster, real-time analysis of the massive volumes of data produced by
equipment systems and devices to improve operational decision-making.
It can now be said that the data produced from a device is now more
valuable than the cost of the device. We are connecting more devices
and crunching more data more quickly than ever before. The Edge is here,
and it is here now.
