BTL Mark: Resolve interoperability issues & increase buyer confidence
ibX Forum - Building Value with
Thursday 5th October 2006
ConnectivityWeek, Amsterdam RAI, 3-5 October 2006
Information Technology is fundamentally changing the way in which we design, operate and use our buildings. We live in an unpredictable world in which natural resources such as water and land are becoming increasingly scarce. Energy prices are rising rapidly, and requirements to cut carbon emissions are forcing us to review the ways we produce and use energy. Global market competition is driving efficiency in business processes, costs and resource usage. In combination these factors are forcing us to be more progressive about our use of buildings, employing every available intelligent solution to deliver better performing buildings.
ibX is a one-day international forum examining Building Value with Intelligence which is being organised by i&i limited as part of BuilConn Europe. BuilConn Europe is taking place at the Amsterdam RAI from 3-5 October 2006.
The forum will be structured into three distinct sessions, bringing together i&i limited’s unique perspective of looking at intelligent building solutions from a demand side and supply side viewpoint.
The first session entitled “Building the Value Bridge” will make the connection between building intelligence and building value. It will identify key stakeholders and their value opportunities, focusing on proving the business case for building investors, owners and end-users.
The focus will then move to the supply side for the second session entitled “Evaluating & Sizing Market Opportunities in Europe”. Leading suppliers will deliver case study examples of how understanding these market opportunities, with the help of market intelligence from i&i limited, has enabled them to concentrate on and exploit different geographical and vertical markets.
i&i limited will use this session to launch and demonstrate its new Online Business Information Intelligence Service (OBIS). This new tool will show how it is possible to identify priority markets for Total Building Solutions across different vertical markets and countries establishing the market potential for new projects and retrofit business.
The final session will consider “The Roadblocks and How to Overcome”. The concept of intelligent buildings has been around for many years. However the application of intelligence in buildings has yet to deliver its true potential. This session will identify the roadblocks to the effective implementation of intelligent building solutions and present strategies for overcoming them. This session will provide examples where IT and Technical Building Services have been brought together effectively, and examine the technologies required to deliver truly integrated intelligent building solutions. The leading role of The Centre of Excellence for Intelligence in Buildings (ibexcellence) in main-streaming intelligent building solutions will be highlighted.
ibX Forum is part of a programme of geographically-focussed events which will take place in Singapore 14-16 November 2006 and Chicago in Spring 2007.
