As director of engineering analytics at DB, I help drive the company’s technical capabilities for getting and using data. Access to data and understanding how to use it enables us to help improve the entire industry beyond traditional engineering alone. I want to upend our industry, and free people from mundane tasks that machines can and should be taught to do for us. Given a whiteboard, I can explain almost anything to anyone, and you won’t see a whiteboard in our office without one of my schematics or diagrams on it. I enjoy skiing, writing, and producing music, and I like burritos. A lot.

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.
Data Analytics – Making Smart Actionable
Building data becomes actionable when good analytics are applied and made useful to facility managers/operators. This session will have two case study presentations which demonstrate this followed by a larger SME moderated panel.
