Building Data Analytics – Energy, Operations, Productivity or All of the Above?
The building big data and analytics discussion has been progressing for about the last five years. Install a network, connect devices and the data begins to flow. In some cases, this has resulted in billions of data points being collected each week. As we have learned to collect and analyze the data, we are now searching for the highest and best use. Do we focus on energy, operations, productivity or all of the above? Perhaps we now have too much information and getting to the right data – to solve the most apparent business problems – is the challenge. This session will provide a spirited discussion on where we are on this hot topic. Data strategies, best practice case studies as well as a host of challenges will all be presented in this very timely and relevant session.

The Smart Connected MALL of 2025 – What Does it Look Like and How Close Are We?
Smart, connected, intelligent, high-performance, these are some of the names that have been given to the “Mall of the Future”. This discussion which dates back 7-10 years has been centered around a highly instrumented mall and what it means. Once a mall is “connected” it can lead to energy conservation, operational efficiency and an entire new level of customer experience. HVAC, lights, security cameras, Muzak, digital signage and parking stalls are all now part of the discussion. So the question begs, how “connected” are malls today, what functionality have they achieved and most importantly what can we expect in 2025? This panel of visionary retail thought leaders will offer global perspectives on what type of innovation we can expect to see in malls in the near future.

Operating Systems vs. Applications – Selecting the Base PLATFORM for a Smart Building
For the past three to five years, there have been a multitude of new entrants in the smart building marketplace. Many of these new solutions purport to “be the brains of the building” or claim they are the “building operating system.” The market has responded with some confusion in determining if a solution is truly an operating platform capable of data collection, aggregation, organization and control or simply an application that sits on top or over to the side. Understanding the difference is probably one of the most important decisions in a smart building project. This session will include thought leaders from some of the most experienced companies and newcomers to the industry, both of whom will continue to discuss and debate operating systems vs. applications.

One Building One Network – A Status Report on the BASE BUILDING NETWORK
For the greater part of modern building history, most equipment found in buildings was analog and disconnected. Each performed a singular function but there was no reason to connect it to other systems. In today’s smart buildings, the concept of a base building network is becoming more mainstream every day. We are way past the debate of “should we do it?” and are now on our fourth or fifth of iteration of “how to do it.” One network or two, how systems are connected, controllers or at the edge, redundancy, business continuity, cybersecurity and revenue generating business models are just a few of the aspects that will be discussed. This high-level session will include some of the most advanced examples of building networks and provide insight into global best practices.

Fighting Vendors for 'OUR DATA' – Another Challenge in the Smart Building Journey
One of the first and most important aspects of connecting building systems to a network is the ability to access and retrieve data from those systems. Data collection and the subsequent analysis is the first step in the journey which allows companies to better understand how to run the systems that run their buildings. Despite the growing demand for access to the data found in equipment, many are experiencing passive (or in some cases aggressive) lack of cooperation by system manufacturers. This instructive session will focus on identifying various accounts of this ‘data access denial’ as well as strategies to circumvent the problem. The discussion will also include how the industry can come together to help mitigate this problem.

EMS, EIS, Dashboards and More – Exploring the Options for Energy Management PLATFORMS
In the last few years, there has been an extraordinary increase in the number of companies that offer some form of data aggregation dashboard to represent the results of an Energy Information System (EIS). A quick Google search on the topic of “energy dashboard” will produce literally millions of results. This proliferation of seemingly undifferentiated solutions has caused confusion in the industry. Companies are struggling to understand the difference between Energy Management Systems (EMS), EIS, analytics, dashboards, point solutions and enterprise applications. In addition, issues covering integration to other systems such as analytics, demand response, and fault detection along with concerns about data integrity and data management are leaving a number of questions unanswered. This illuminating session will bring clarity to the EMS and EIS topics.

SPACE UTILIZATION – Technology's Role in Uncovering the Truth
One way to communicate the “state” of a building or tenant space is with occupancy/vacancy data. Over the years, with increasingly powerful mobile technologies and changing work and lifestyle habits, workplaces and retail spaces are finding themselves progressively underutilized. Recent data confirms the office utilization rate of corporate America is in the 35-40% range. Today, the metric is not total occupancy or vacancy, but utilization. In order to better measure this metric, technology is playing an expanding role. Cameras, access data, mobile phones, beacons, IR sensors and even seat monitors are helping to reveal the truth. This vital session will focus on the state of the industry, including the various methods and technologies being used to measure space utilization.

Fast-forward to 2017 and many technologies mentioned in the book are here and getting smaller, less expensive and more powerful. Sensors in everything from chairs to lighting systems are allowing for enormous capabilities to track not just motion but also voice and video. Combine this extraordinary sensorization with analytics and AI and you have the potential for excessive breaches in privacy. While many people, especially younger generations, are less concerned with privacy, it is important to debate the unintended consequences. This will be the most compelling smart building privacy discussion of 2017.

DISTRIBUTED ENERGY Resources and MICROGRIDS – Understanding the Impacts to Smart Building Projects
The electric grid in the United States (and in many countries around the world) is old and in need of replacement. It is common to hear politicians talk about the need to upgrade infrastructure and electricity as part of that discussion. Next generation distributed microgrids may play a significant role in the future of smart buildings. New technology that promises to deliver electricity at efficiencies never before seen is now becoming a reality. Advanced storage, distribution networks and new storage systems such as batteries and flywheels are resulting in advanced levels of digital precision. This instructive session will evaluate the status of the world’s most sophisticated microgrid projects and the benefits to building owners and operators.

OPERATIONS Technology and INFORMATION Technology – Closing the Gap
There was once a time when IT and building operations had no reason to talk. After all, IT used to be about printers and workstations, and operations handled buildings systems such as HVAC and lighting. Recently this separation of powers is radically changing. Smarter building equipment, the increased adoption of building networks, IoT and the increased visibility of issues such as cybersecurity and privacy are bringing these two worlds together. It is no longer a matter of if, but when, the IT and real estate operations groups will collaborate on the consummate building design. For organizations that have made the transformation to an integrated strategy, they wonder how they ever did it any other way. This excellent session will feature the early adopters of IT and OT integration.

Bringing PLUG LOADS onto the Network – A Missing Piece of the Puzzle
Lights, HVAC, access control, surveillance, parking gates and even irrigation systems are all making their way onto the converged building network. Energy conservation, operational efficiency and occupant experience are all driving this IP convergence. One of the missing pieces has been the ability to monitor and track the energy consumption of the myriad of devices 'plugged' into the electrical outlets. As one of the biggest consumers of electricity in a building, the AC outlet serves computers, printers, desk lamps and other equipment which all contribute to massive energy consumption. With the advent of new IP-based technology connecting the outlets to the network, this informative session will explore this missing and important piece of the puzzle.
