Independent Data Layer – A Path Toward Interoperability
The multiplicity of building systems and use cases has bedeviled building managers and operators for years – most acutely in the inability to have effective data sharing between them. Solutions ranging from open-source protocols to standard nomenclatures have meant progress, but a permanent fix to interoperability has remained elusive. This session will explore the idea of an “independent data layer” (aka a data lake or data aggregation layer) and how the creation of this middle layer between systems and application layer can unlock huge benefit for the building and industry providers who embrace the idea.
