The advent of IoT increase considerably the potential number of smart devices collecting data, resulting in an additional level of complexity for facility managers.
Analytics solutions effectively manage the new state of information overload, identifying and focusing on key information and problems on real basis.
Thanks to more open protocols, existing components can easily communicate and integrate with the new solution. Nevertheless, communication and engagement of all relevant stakeholders is still crucial to properly implement Building Management Systems (BMS).
A recent survey from Schneider Electric show that only 27% of building managers use data-driven analytics solutions. In the near future, facility manager will need to make the best of these available solutions in order to fulfill the demand of efficient operations.
