February........ Building Automation and Web
Is Building Automation
rapidly evolving its Web Services? Our past issues have talked
about our anywhereness and Interrogating Information 4 Integration. If you couple
this with this month's articles and the interview it all points to the
rapid transition by our industry to use web services that are interweaved
with our traditional real time data.
From Toby's interview The Building System Interface
- Space is what the building systems support, space is what the tenants
recognize, space is where building systems deliver service. To interact
with those services, we need building services interfaces (BSI).
Jim adds; Designing An Integrated Building System
The heart of the IBS is in the integration of building systems in a way
that provides greater functionality and facilitates optimum building
Nirosha writes; Exposing Building Behaviour Using BAS
Discovering groups and structures in the data that are similar without knowing the structures of the data.
While Nino writes; Cyber-Security
For the last ten years the whole industry has been talking about IP,
Web, interoperability and open systems. Security however, has
been mostly left behind, somewhere in the pre-internet age.
Lots of other great articles. columns, and reviews that echo the theme.

January......... Anywhere Integration
The Creation of Anywhere Integration and the general
anywhereness ( yes that is now a word in Wikipedia ) of our industry
will be our challenge for 2011. I am very pleased with our January
issue's diversity of articles and interviews that depict our
anywhereness. As you can see from our past issues 2010 has been all about building automation connecting to everything
while using the internet cloud as the medium. This has evolved to
Anywhere Integration of our information and services and will set the
theme for 2011. As you can see by the varied subject matter of
the below articles, columns, interviews and reviews the scope of
Anywhere Integration is amazing.
