The development of connected devices and powerful IT platforms are bringing the Internet of Things (IoT) vision into energy and facility management. This brings the potential to enable building managers to develop more proactive, as opposed to reactive, building management strategies (see Verdantix Energy Management In The Age Of The Internet Of Things). While the potential for IoT in energy and facility management is promising, the market is still developing and adoption rates vary widely. This report combines analysis of data from Verdantix annual surveys of 250 energy and facility managers with on-going Verdantix research, to help senior executives in energy and facility management software firms review their product strategies to drive adoption of IoT building solutions.
