Smart Building Focus

The Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have the potential to enable building owners, operators and occupants to manage and inhabit buildings more efficiently, creating cost savings, reducing energy consumption and ensuring the space is used in a way that meets a company’s goals. These types of benefits can apply to many different spaces, for example, hospitals, stadiums, and factories.

By leveraging IoT and AI we can enhance the connection between the intelligent cloud and the physical world. Through using data we are able to create a digital twin – a virtual model of spaces, people and devices. We can then analyze how the space is being used and optimize it to better serve people’s needs – ranging from energy efficiency through to employee satisfaction and productivity.
