Use Case

Data freedom

These days, everything is data-driven. Except buildings, for the most part. That’s because data has historically been hard to capture from in-building systems. And when data is being captured on a regular basis, it’s aggregate is either locked away in proprietary protocols or thrown into an unstructured database with no meaning or value. As a result, the ownership, operation and ongoing management of buildings is anything but data-driven.

With normalized data from all major systems,
contextualized within its environment and related
to all the other data in its ecosystem, it becomes possible to
take advantage of the advanced technologies that have brought
disruption and innovation to so many other industries.

How would your FM strategy change with data freedom?

With data freedom, you have:
  • Buildings that can take advantage of AI and machine learning to improve operations and cut costs.
  • Decisions like where to invest capital for the highest returns that would be easier to make because they could be informed by real, operational data.
  • Teams across your enterprise reading from the same script, ensuring that strategic initiatives are implemented across your portfolio and outcomes are consistently reported.
  • Compliance with local laws, federal requirements and certification frameworks that can shift from time-consuming and error prone to automatic and adaptive.
Without data freedom, you're experiencing:
  • Buildings that are beholden to gatekeepers to access their own data.
  • Data lakes that are dumping grounds for unstructured, unusable data that's costly to store and providing no value.
  • Every pilot program for advanced technology involves a costly and redundant effort of integration and data modeling.
  • Reporting that requires a data scientist and must be started from scratch every time it's due.

The systems that operate buildings produce vast amounts of unstructured, unmodeled data. This data is often proprietary to the equipment manufacturer or programmed with no discernable standard. As such, it cannot be aggregated for analysis without costly retrofits. 

When modeled data is easily accessible to you and your teams, via open-sourced standards and through an IT industry-leading framework, your data becomes useful to you for strategic decision-making and smarter maintenance.
