IBcon Vegas an amazing event
Vegas was a truly an amazing event with the users of smart intelligent
buildings meeting with the providers of same and having meaningful
dialog. Great questions and great answers by all.
In the spirit of the new collaboration
which we all need to be part of, and the scope of this amazing show, I collaborated with;
Eric and Ken http://controltrends.org/ and Therese http://buildingcontext.me/ to help provide you a better picture of what you missed.
If a picture is worth a thousand words then a video can portray a book of pictures.
Therese builds context in her separate
review of event here; Their common message was that open-architected,
automation systems (BAS) are at the nucleus of the next phase of
human-to-machine connectivity. be sure to read;
Sound Bites, Surprises and Solid Advice from the Smart Building Integrator Summit (SBIS) at IBcon 2014
My review of the IBcon show includes
direct links to valuable captures of the show by all with a few
words to describe what was captured.
Starts here with this Control Trends
video; Just Moments Before the 2014 IBcon PreConference Start with Ken
Sinclair and Therese Sullivan.
Day 1 featured an incredible number of sessions and speakers: CIO Roundtable, COO Innovation Summit, Intelligent Building Boot Camp, the New Sustainability Executive Smart Building Symposium, and the New Smart Building Integrator Summit Intel’s announcement of their world-wide deployment of their E2E Embedded Solutions Group’s faster, simpler, easier and secure (McAffee) solutions for the Building Business. IT Security expert, Billy Rios, Director of Threat Intelligence at Qualys, offered prescriptive measures for Systems Integrators
My Biggest takeaway from show was Our Assets R U.
We need to engage in connection to new folks to help grow our assets and our industry.
Hardware costs are dropping; capabilities are growing exponentially; data has been set free in the cloud to be mined by all.
Our best resource to the chaos is us, we need to allow the technology to flow around us, directing it to it best present day applications.
Our session Developing an Effective SELECTION PROCESS was extremley well recieved. Session started at 5:00
pm after a very full day and some 55 souls showed up to listen carfully to
my amazing panel of industry experts. This was one of the few events
that did not get captured. Audience particlpation make this a very
Details here in an EMAIL INTERVIEW – Rob Murchison, Tom Shircliff and Ken Sinclair
Developing an Effective SELECTION PROCESS The
list of companies offering Energy Management Systems (EMS) continues to
grow. For the real estate owner/operator, it has become an exhaustive
task to identify, organize and analyze the different options for a
final, incisive decision.

From this capture by Control Trends:
In perhaps, the most significant industry gathering of 2014, Jim Young and Realcomm/IBcon brought together a world-class panel of some of the biggest and most influential global companies in the world that will undoubtedly change the direction and adoption tempo of technologies that will create and deliver new heights in operational efficiencies, reduced energy consumption, and the transformation of big data into business intelligence that will improve occupancy experiences, achieve sustainability goals, and effectively optimize commercial and corporate building financial performances.
At the 2014 Realcomm/IBcon, ControlTrends met up with Dave Lorenzini, a premiere technology visionary and entrepreneur that is changing the way people look at the world. Dave commented on the explosion of intelligent building interaction at a level never seen before; the amazing adoption of technology that has occurred since last year; and the exciting impact technology is having within the building industry. As the former Director of Keyhole, the first global 3D visualization System online that became the Google Earth, and serves over a billion users worldwide, Dave Lorenzini, has seen the structural transformation that innovative products can make and is very excited about the Sanborn Platform for Indoor Mapping (SPIN) and describes the role of the semi-autonomous mobile robotics platform in the next generation of intelligent buildings.
Check out video
The conference was also well covered with many videos by Realcomm/IBcon with a big Thank You from the IBcon Team!
We wish to thank everyone who
participated in the 16th annual Realcomm conference and IBcon 2014 in
Las Vegas! Your presence helped make both events a tremendous success.
Some of the brightest and most visionary and innovative people from the
commercial, corporate, institutional and government real estate
industry were on hand to explore the latest technology innovations
impacting the industry.
Conference LIVE Videos
I was very pleased to be on Realcomm / IBcon 2014 - Conference LIVE by Webcast & Beyond on Livestream.com LIve
to provide a bit of information about AutomatedBuildings.com and how many of the folks from our 15 year Collaboratory were IBcon
advisors. Realcomm IBcon has done a very good job of connection to the
past of intelligent buildings with the future by using our industry
leaders as advisors and presenters. The sessions showed this connection
was very important to moving forward.
I was also honored to be selected as one
of six candidates to receive the Digital Impact Award. Only two were
chosen. I was up against tough competition and I agreed the award should
go to Rick Huijbregts VP, Industry Transformation General Manager, IoE
| Smart + Connected Communities Cisco Systems Inc. His work in
Smart Cities movement and IOT is amazing.
The second award was givento long-time friend, writer and AutomatedBuidings.com collaborator and of course Haystacker John Petze Principal SkyFoundry .
I bow to the achievement of these two
personal heroes, but was pleased to be acknowledged as having some
digital impact on our industry.
Not sure if you saw this from the show;
Dell is introducing new research on smart buildings
and will join Intel to discuss its findings at the Intelligent
Buildings Conference (IBcon) in Las Vegas today. Enabling building
automation is a key element of Dell’s strategy of supporting customers
around the world and across various industries in realizing their
vision for the Internet of Things (IoT). Dell and Intel are helping
architects and organizations imagine the next generation of integrated,
open-architected, IP-centric, connected, high-performance, sustainable,
energy-efficient, operationally efficient, and intelligent buildings.
The hugh Infocomm show was on at the
same time I quickly walked and peeked in on setup of both north and
south halls for event and amazing site of technology, flat screens, and
audio. They also had a digital signage, digital wall section that I
wanted to see but the IBcon event totally consumed me.
