Big data is one of today's most exciting technology developments. In terms of its impact on the energy field, it has already begun the process of positively transforming the discipline of energy management.

Designed to bring energy professionals up to speed on the impact of big data and analytics as they apply to energy, this seminar will, first of all clarify and put into perspective the most impactful and exciting developments in the areas of foundation technologies such as building automation, web services and middleware, which are critical for success with analytics. Participants will then learn how leveraging these technologies with analytics can produce huge energy savings, and, equally importantly, can ensure that energy projects actually fulfill their expected results.

Building and facility professionals facing ever-increasing energy and operational costs, are sure to benefit from this thoroughly informative and detailed overview of these critical developments in energy management and engineering. The program will also be valuable for engineers, designers and managers trying to make sense of, and select from, the myriad of products, solutions and services now available. Interoperable building systems are an optimal source of data for analytics, and the materials covered in the seminar will provide valuable guidance on the techniques and approaches necessary to achieve this interoperability in buildings and campuses. Also addressed are important trends currently affecting building energy and analytics, such as Project Haystack and the Internet of Things.

You will leave this program with valuable and practical new and expanded knowledge which you can apply right away in your efforts to improve your energy management and cost reduction results.
