Big Picture Insight for Quick, Impactful Decisions for Facility Management
Today, the building industry is responsible for high loads of energy demand and greenhouse gas emissions at nearly 40%, according to Architecture2030. With the Biden Administration’s aggressive plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions and achieve a Carbon Pollution-Free Power Sector by 2035, the demand for low-cost and energy-efficient productivity will continue to push the industry at an accelerated rate.
Master systems integrators are in high demand based off of this trend. They are called upon to help building owners improve productivity, reduce waste, and optimize energy efficiency by packaging technology and integrating multiple software layers into a single platform. The MSI is responsible for ensuring all mechanical and electrical systems communicate properly and deliver actionable data in real time with meaningful insights. MSIs are different than other building service providers in that they integrate domain expertise across IT and operational technology. The ability to then manage and monitor every aspect of the facility through a single pane of glass (SPOG) gives the end-user a competitive advantage.
MSIs are able to customize solutions so that the disparate, technical systems work seamlessly together, thereby gleaning actionable insights from automation, mechanical, electrical, and security systems. Through a unified building approach, the integrated platform collects and analyzes data from the entire building with protocols in place to facilitate interoperable automation and communication between the systems.
How a Single Pane of Glass Delivers Data-Driven Action
A SPOG is a unified display that provides easy to navigate insights based on the mission of the building and the key performance indicators of the user. With a single pane of glass-style of monitoring, the building stakeholders can make better, more informed decisions quickly to achieve efficiency goals, reduce operational costs, and improve safety and comfort.
As experts in facility optimization, the integration team evaluates the building conditions and develops strategies that address pain points, including traditional and common efficiency improvement activities. Through years of experience, tribal knowledge, and best-in-class technology, system integrators can help an end user reduce its environmental impact through the facility optimization process.
