Executive Summary

Within the past five years, the cost of embedding sensors and software for edge analytics and decision-making into building equipment has significantly declined (see Verdantix Is Demand-Side Energy Management Ready For The Internet Of Things?). Industry leaders such as GE have popularized the concept of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and are now embedding new data capture and communication technology in all of their equipment. The tighter integration of software and hardware is aimed at more closely linking facility operational insight with action to drive improved facility performance. This report will help heads of strategy and product managers in firms providing building technologies and energy and facility services to understand how these technology improvements work for solving customer pain points.
